Many students in computer arts who wish to specialize in television and film making often choose to pursue a Bachelor in Film. This allows talented storytellers to express their art in ways that reach an audience in both movie theaters and home theaters.
What is a Bachelor in Film? Students in this program learn all aspects of film creation, including both theory and practice. Coursework generally includes topics in film and television directing, scriptwriting, sound, animation, lighting, typography, and cinematography.
Film production is a competitive field. The opportunity to participate in a major motion picture or a television production is often won by superior training and education. Another benefit is that more filmmakers see their work reach audiences than ever before. Major motion pictures require a larger production team than in times past. Cable networks are hungry for new, fresh programming. Filmmakers with their own vision can now publish in a variety of ways, including getting funding online or posting to a video showcase.
Costs for a filmmaker program vary widely by institution. Students can expect to pay tuition, lab fees, and equipment rental costs. Many students find it important to purchase their own computer and film production software. A computer and a high-speed internet connection are usually a necessity for remote students. The filmmaking program generally lasts three to five years.
Although graduates are trained in all aspects of filmmaking, they often choose to start their career in a particular specialty. Many gravitate towards the scripters’ bull-pen or write their own scripts. Others become part of the film crew as stage or lighting producers. Still others work as sound technicians, computer animators, or story boarders. Many consider the pinnacle of a filmmaking career as becoming the director of a film or television series.
