EXPERIENCES THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE


The Digital Media Production Program is a limited-access, cutting-edge program designed to prepare students for the rapidly changing world of digital media.

With the proliferation of video equipment and editing software, digital video production has burst through the confines of television studios and Hollywood conventions, allowing small teams to create visual material that is distributed across a host of media. This program gives students the skills needed to become confident visual storytellers and media makers.

Digital Media Production students learn the foundation skills of shooting HD video, recording sound and using lighting for dramatic effect. Alongside these traditional elements, students also learn to use contemporary post production software including Adobe Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Audition and AfterEffects, and a suite of 3D animation software. Students also have the opportunity to learn emerging technologies, such as VR and 360 video production. These tools, combined with a theoretical background in visual storytelling, prepare students for work in industries ranging from film and television, sports media, local production studios and innovative jobs related to streaming video and on-line productions.

The DMP Program focuses on documentary and sports media.  This emphasis on reality based visual storytelling teaches students to capture events the first time, because there are no second takes in real life. Whether you are filming a live event or following a player run down the field, our program prepares students to work in a dynamic, ever-changing world that requires technical skill and lightning fast reflexes.

Through documentary and public interest media, students learn the power of real world stories to influence their peers, politics, and public opinion.

Documentary work teaches students to look beyond the surface, finding powerful stories of heroes and villains right outside their doors. Special effects and computer graphics will never recreate the power or real people telling real stories and we have many heroes who don’t wear capes, right in our backyards.  By getting off campus and into the community, documentary work connects students to scientists, politicians, homemakers and the homeless.  These encounters transform aspiring media makers into champions of change building passionate connections to social issues and stories that matter.  The DMP Program does not graduate media technicians – our students are passionate Champions of Change working to make the world a better place.
