Digital Film Minor

The Digital Filmmaking minor allows students to work with the only Digital Filmmaking program in the state of Arkansas. The program strongly emphasizes narrative visual storytelling and students learn the technical aspects of digital production, including computer based pre-production and pre-visualization, digital cinematography, and computer based editing, effects, and sound design.

Given the continued growth of media outlets (movie theater, TV, Internet) professionals that have the ability to use this cutting-edge technology, as well as the ability to create original content to fill these outlets, will be be in high demand.

Contact professor Joe Dull for more information.
