BA in Film Design

General

Program Description

Film Design Program was designed for a new generation of film artists who share a passion for motion pictures and want to learn by making their own projects in a hands-on program.

Learning to be a filmmaker is not done by theory alone. It is done by immersion in the process and by knowing the “whys” that teach the “hows”. It is done through hands-on experience, trial and error, feedback and correction, and questions and answers. Filmmaking demands the integration of many kinds of knowledge. In our film design courses, students learn not only how to operate a camera, light a scene, or edit a film, but they also learn how all the aspects of filmmaking relate to, interact with, and depend upon each other.

This program is 70% Turkish and 30% English. It is not recommended if you are not fluent in Turkish.

Description of the course

During the fourth year, undergraduate program emphasis will be given to scriptwriting, directing, production, cinematography, editing, and post-production.
