The power of real-life stories come alive in this certificate program. We’ll provide you with foundational practical filmmaking skills (both visual and aural), as well as historical and theoretical knowledge for telling non-fictional narratives. You’ll acquire a foundational knowledge of essential techniques in cinematography, editing and sound-mixing, and will apply these skills in journalistic and artistic ways.
