Digital Cinema

(HEGIS: 5606)

A.S. Degree

The A.S. Digital Cinema degree program is a transfer program that focuses on student learning in the aesthetics of cinema and technical proficiency for digital filmmaking in the motion picture and video industries. The program is designed to prepare students for transfer to baccalaureate programs in related fields by exploring all avenues of the film production, writing, and animation within the motion picture industry. Students complete a common core of program courses and can focus in an area of interest such as production, screenwriting, or animation. In the capstone course, students put to use what they’ve learned in previous semesters to collaborate on a short form, narrative, digital film. The capstone project, along with individual student projects created throughout the program, can be used for transfer and employment portfolios. Students may also choose (with instructor approval) to participate in the “Hollywood trip,” a six-credit travel course that involves educational experiences on-site at television and film sets in Los Angeles.
