The rise in popularity of digital filmmaking can be traced to the commercial success of the consumer videocassette recorder. Since that time, technological advances, such as the advent of digitized photography, video, and film, have brought the camcorder, digital cameras, low-cost editing equipment, audio mixers, and computer-controlled media. With the development of the Internet and the onset of High Definition Television, the need for digital film/video products and qualified professionals will continue to play a major role in communications. This field also continues to be an important component of international communications. Throughout the degree program students work with industry-related equipment in the creative atmosphere of filmmaking and video production. They have opportunities for real-world experience by working in the field for special projects with non-profit organizations such as public broadcasting. Faculty are experienced and practicing professionals who mentor students and work side-by-side with them to promote the development of the skills necessary to use the camera and editing equipment as technical and imaginative tools for today’s electronic storytelling.
