Focusing on the art and craft of visual storytelling, Fellows receive instruction from professional cinematographers while learning how to move an audience with their visual interpretation of the narrative.

Classroom lectures, lighting workshops, and exercises using both digital and 35mm film cameras provide Fellows with practical experience and training. Fellows become adept at making fast, informed and inspired creative decisions.

Three short narrative projects are the core of the first year. With training in new media technology incorporated — from pre-visualization to advanced image manipulation and control — Fellows develop their storytelling skills by photographing narrative projects on digital video.

In the second year, Fellows team to shoot 15- to 30-minute thesis productions, which may be filmed in a variety of formats. In addition, the completion of the Cinematography portfolio includes a short 35mm essay.
