The Film Production major is a real-world filmmaking program right here in Huntington, Indiana. Students work hand-in-hand with our professional faculty and mentors to gain knowledge on the full spectrum of film positions available, including sound design, cinematography, lighting, screenwriting, producing, and directing. These skills are then used to create semester-long film projects and gives students experience with film festival submission.

Creating Art, Creating a Career

Students are given the foundation in storytelling and filmmaking techniques in order to produce and direct both live-action and documentary films that reflect our Christian faith and speak truth to the culture at large. The Martin Center for Digital Media Arts in Becker Hall is fully equipped for any experience a student may desire. The department houses green screen studios, editing labs, a screening room, and both sound design and Foley workspaces. Students also gain experience with the newest DSLR cameras, LED lighting, sound recorders, and our RED cinema camera. Unlike many film schools, the department believes in a hands-on approach to learning and students begin to gain access to all these items and spaces starting from day one.

Well-Rounded Professionals

Through the program, you will be challenged with the historical, theoretical, and spiritual aspects of being a filmmaker. Through classes, practicum experiences and studio work, you will gain the practical knowledge needed for entering a career in filmmaking. Students also have an opportunity to participate in the Los Angeles Film Studies semester exchange, giving them a chance to both complete an internship within the Hollywood film industry and either create films or write screenplays with artistic peers from all over the country.
