Film

Work with a unique medium – combining visual, auditory, and narrative elements – to tell a story and explore the diversity of human experience. Produce and direct your own creations, edit film and video, or take your understanding of the visual arts into a creative career in graphic design, social media, or digital advertising.

Film courses at SPSCC will walk you through every aspect of filmmaking, from pre- to post-production, using state-of-the-art digital photography, audio, and editing equipment with the guidance of experienced, working filmmakers.

What’s Different at SPSCC?
