Film & Video major
Bring stories to life.
Sharpen your creative eye with real-world assignments in our film program. You’ll explore every aspect of the filmmaking process at CCAD—from pre-production through post-production and distribution—working with faculty who not only teach, but also practice professionally. Whether you want to make films, fine art installations, commercials, documentaries, or music videos, you can make them all at CCAD with all the professinal industry gear and tools. If you want to change the face of filmmaking and make lifelong connections, this is the place to start.
Here, we’re focused on helping you grow as independent filmmakers. That includes the introduction of our new film series, Independent Reel, which showcases work by independent filmmakers and visits by the filmmakers themselves as they introduce their work and share their creative process.
Our graduates go on to work as directors, cinematographers, editors, producers, video installation artists, production designers, motion graphics artists, videographers, assistant directors, script supervisors, visual effects artists, sound designers, storyboard artists, and technical artists.
