Innovations in techniques, communication, and distribution channels have leveled the playing field for filmmakers, but the elements of a compelling film remain the same. In Full Sail University’s Film Production master of fine arts program, your education centers on fundamentals such as storytelling, visual aesthetics, and technical roles, as well as the business strategies needed to bring your completed works to audiences.
Visual Storytelling Techniques and Technology - The course curriculum will build upon themes from introductory courses to illustrate how directors enhance the dramatic effect of scenes through lighting, location, blocking, movement, and other techniques.
Filmmaking Concepts and Practices - Students will learn how to apply filmmaking concepts and theory to the practice of film production in terms of production design, cinematography, and film aesthetics.
