Producing and Directing for Video and Media Arts Certificate

The Producing and Directing for Video and Media Arts certificate is designed to train individuals in organizing, budgeting, and managing a video or television production of any size or level. The curriculum provides advanced skills the students need to be able to find and analyze a script, develop a budget, hire above-the-line and below-the-line crew, conduct a casting call, breakdown scenes, organize and manage a full crew on set, meet deadlines, follow the editing process, and develop a marketing plan for distribution. College-level reading and writing skills are expected, as development of technical reports and use of technical manuals are required.

Courses in each level (Foundation, Core and Advanced Tracks) must be completed prior to advancing to the next level. Where more than one course is offered within a level, courses may be taken in any sequence.
