CCF: Film Studies for the Career Focused
Greenlight your film career in one year.
The 30-credit Certificate in Collaborative Filmmaking at Maine Media College provides participants with an intense hands-on, creativity-driven entry route into the film, television and web media industries. Students are prepared to work as independent filmmakers or for film-production positions in the areas of cinematography, lighting, directing, sound, editing, visual effects, writing, and the like. Graduates of the program can apply these skills to work in a number of media arts genres including narrative film, documentary, corporate video, and web-based media creation, to name just a few.
A Film Certificate Program Instructed by Industry Professionals
Throughout the program, students will explore new modalities of expression in order to broaden their artistic range, strengthen their skills and techniques, and experience the dynamics of collaboration. Students work at close range with instructors who are also experienced professionals in the craft areas they teach, and they will have access to standard industry equipment with which to work. Instructed by accomplished industry directors, writers, cinematographers and editors, students will also learn the nuances of navigating the industry as a professional.
