Advanced Digital Filmmaking Conservatory

Now that you have mastered the foundation technical and artistic elements of digital film making, it is time to take your skills and vision to the next level— a professional production and artistic level. Students learn the latest advanced techniques and industry software. Students will also be taught never shown before methods on how to engage the audience and making sure that they are not passive observers.
