Within our major and minor, students have the opportunity to take production classes with Deb Ellis, theory and practice classes with Hilary Neroni, and screen writing classes with Sarah Nilsen, as well as additional production classes with Madsen Minax in the Art Department. Pre-requisites for production classes include one history course (FTS 007, 008, 009 or 010) and Film/Television Theory FTS 121.
Get hands on experience combining theory and practice.
Because students are required to take an intro class (FTS 7, 8, 9, or 10) and a film theory class (FTS 121), they come in with a shared language and commitment. The production classes prompt students to explore narrative, documentary, and experimental ideas visually while teaching them basic to advanced skills in video editing and shooting.
