The program in Film & Video provides artists with a dynamic laboratory for producing new forms of narrative, documentary and experimental work in both film and video. Our internationally renowned Programs in Experimental Animation and Character Animation give students an excellent foundation in both technique and creative thinking and prepare them to produce work at the very forefront of animated filmmaking. The Film Directing Program focuses on the fundamentals of dramatic storytelling and theater practice but also calls for innovative approaches to staging drama for the screen. In each program, we emphasize artistic and intellectual boldness and encourage all students to push the boundaries of their chosen media. Their work has been represented extensively at major festivals and museums around the world as much as it has been in the film, television and animation industries.
