The digital film courses offered through the Digital Studies Certificate introduce students to the formal qualities of motion pictures, and the ways in which this medium communicates ideas, tells stories, and documents experience. Students gain technical experience storyboarding, shooting high-definition videos, and managing the pre- and post-production process. There are many certificate courses that include video production and the work below is just a sample of what students create. See more student work on our YouTube Channel.
