Overview

The Cinematography Concentration is a rigorous course of study for students who have a special interest in the art and science of photographing the moving image. Whether the capture medium is film, video or a new digital process, the concepts, concerns, and artistic approaches to achieving the right visual imagery is the same. The Core Major Requirements are the same as the standard Film Major, thus students may elect this concentration as late as their junior year.
