About

The B.F.A. in Film Production at Chapman University focuses on visual storytelling and fosters the development of your creative voice and artistic expression in the context of a rigorous liberal arts education.

Overview

The Film Production comprehensive program offered by Chapman University emphasizes a hands-on, project-based approach in which you will learn all the aspects of film production through the use of our state-of-the-art facilities and best industry practices.
