MFA in Film Production

» Master all aspects of film production through the use of storytelling, industry standard tools and best practices

The three-year MFA in Film Production is a mentoring-focused, hands-on program that explores all aspects of film production through the use of visual storytelling techniques, industry standard tools and best professional practices. Students must choose an area of specialization at the point of application in either directing, cinematography, editing or sound design.

During your first year, you will learn foundational and more sophisticated facets of filmmaking as you collaborate on productions with your colleagues under the close guidance of our faculty. Our accelerated program places students immediately on productions in order to gain hands on experience both on set and supported from the classroom. The second year is an enhancement and continuation of the program through advanced classroom based knowledge and increasingly challenging film projects under the close supervision and guidance of our faculty. You will take on greater responsibilities in the practice of your craft.

Your education culminates in your third year when you form a complete creative team with your colleagues, writers, producers, editors, cinematographers, sound and production designers, all coming together to realize a unified vision —a final thesis project. Dodge College provides each team with a $15,000 contribution towards their thesis production; in addition to having full use of industry standard equipment and facilities. These projects enable students in all disciplines to enter their field with a professional sample of work.
