Our Director’s direct!

Students in the the Film Arts Directing Certificate will direct two festival quality films and garner on-screen credits as a director during this dynamic eight-month program.

In collaboration with your fellow actors, writers, and directors you’ll also have credits as a director of photography, editor, and producer.

Hard work? You bet.

You need drive, ambition, a solid work ethic, teamwork skills, and energy to burn in order to succeed in this career path. Our yearly Film Arts Festival screening event is the launch pad for the films that your team will promote and screen worldwide.

Directing Stream students will learn how to:

  • Clearly express, through a director’s notebook, their narrative and visual ideas to their key crew members including the writer, actor, designer and cinematographer.
  • Block and rehearse creatively and confidently with actors.
  • Light, shoot, edit, and post produce high-definition video projects for festival submissions.
