Do it all
Our production classes teach you how to be a director, screenwriter, editor, sound designer - and so much more. In contrast to the specialized division of labor of the professional-style crew system used in a traditional "film school;" here at Connecticut College, you'll learn how to do it all. And since our introductory level courses get you to write, direct, shoot, and edit three or more films per semester, you'll leave with a lot of films in your portfolio.
Work with a crew
In our upper-level production courses, you'll write/direct/edit a film with a partner and assemble a larger crew of classmates inside and out of class. Typical crews in FLM 310 and 410 consist of the following: Assistant Director, Director of Photography, Gaffer, Light Techs, Grips, and Sound.
More than HD video
We use the term "film" not to designate a particular technology, but a particular category of creative practice. We do 16mm film, too!
