Overview

 Experiential classes at Digital Cinema from Southern Oregon University give students ample on-set opportunities to put their understanding into action in a supportive environment where failure is celebrated as an integral stage of the learning process. We encourage our student filmmakers to chart new territory and create courageously, challenging themselves to push the boundaries of the possible.

Our small class sizes promote camaraderie and community among students, planting the seeds of an essential professional network and sharpening skills in collaboration and communication. Students engage in frequent peer feedback and peer mentoring, learning as much from one another as from their faculty, and develop the advanced group problem-solving skills necessary to a career in professional production.
