    Here is the Video of CCH that's include the Campus tour and other facilities.

    CCH building their 3-D offerings”¦ CCH first offered a 3-D Cinematography class more than two years ago. The dean of the College
    Alan L. Gansberg Said to StudentFilmmakers.com "We look at 3-D not just as technology. We are integrating the theory and conversation of 3-D into our entire program. Our students have to contemplate the aesthetic of 3-D where, for example, the close-up will be used differently than it is for traditional feature films, the TV screen, and even the Internet. How does shooting in 3-D alter the aesthetic? We have had a 3-D cinematography class for two years. The technology changes so the cameras keep changing and this is where our relationships with and proximity to equipment houses come into play because we try to lease or get loans on camera gear. For a school to purchase now doesn't make sense. Tomorrow there's something new. We have used the Panavision Genesis system, and others. We also incorporate 3-D into our animation (Maya) courses. In terms of instruction, we've been lucky, in a sense, in that two of our cinematography instructors - Vince Toto and Charles Haine - have been shooting 3-D extensively, and our senior cinematography instructor, Charlie Rose, is a master at anything with a camera and a light. I think he could make a brilliant image with an Instamatic and a lighted match. Will we do more 3-D classes? Absolutely. They are wildly popular with the students (not surprisingly). By Spring 2011 we'll have a course in which students will be shooting a short project in 3-D. Some students are already doing just that. "

    CCH philosophy is unshakable: The best filmmaker has a thorough understanding of all aspects of the film making process.Directors, writers, producers, cinematographers, editors, visual effects artists, sound mixers - all
    benefit from understanding how a script is developed; the lighting, sound, and design challenges on communication with actors; how best to visually represent the intent of a line or the event of a scene; and the way images are assembled and the film visually enhanced in post production. The best way to understand these challenges is to do it. Columbia College Hollywood is synonymous with hands-on learning,done in a setting of collaboration, support, and a commitment to classes with small enrollment for maximum involvement of each student and lively interaction with our instructors.

    Professional edge ”¢ At CCH you learn from Emmyâ„¢and Oscarâ„¢winners and nominees. They teach you their art, their passion, and their business. Learn how to do the job, and learn how to get the job.

    Artistic edge Ӣ The collaborative art of film is many arts. The unique virtue of CCH is that here you learn all those arts in order to collaborate more effectively. Then you specialize, emphasizing Directing, Producing,Entertainment Business,Screenwriting, Cinematography, or Editing/VFX.

    Academic edge Ӣ CCH is as rigorous academically as it is technically. You develop your whole talent, your whole craft, your whole human instrument. Our Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) and Associate of Fine Arts (AFA) degrees are accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), the premier accreditation authority for schools of the visual arts. Other members include Carnegie Mellon, Syracuse, and Notre Dame.

    Geographic edge Ӣ CCH is right in the middle of the entertainment industry, in the original Panavision headquarters. CCHers intern with companies like ABC, MTV, New Line and Village Roadshow.

    Flexible edge Ӣ Our academic calendar is quarterly. Four terms a year, together with three class periods a day, create the flexibility you need if you choose to keep a job while you study.

    Competitive edge ”¢ The entertainment industry is about as close to recession-proof as a business can be. And CCH's grounded curriculum, the professional faculty, the choice internships”¦ It all adds up to this: CCH graduates work. Year after year, 90% and more of our graduates go to work in the rewarding and fulfilling film and television industry.

    ”¦ and Action! ”¢ Explore the CCH site: take the virtual tour; screen the student films. And when you're ready to put an edge on your talent, download an application.

    Bachelor of Fine Arts-Cinema =4 years
    Bachelor of Fine Arts-Cinema/Television=4 years
    Associate of Fine Arts-Cinema/Television=2 years

    However, by taking a full course load year-round including Summer Quarter, or by taking more units per quarter, it is possible
    to complete the programs in a shorter time.

    In order to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree all incoming students - freshmen and transfer students will be required to choose both a major (Cinema or combined Cinema-Television) and a specific area of
    emphasis within that major - Producing, Directing, Screenwriting, Cinematography, or Editing-VFX (which
    also includes sound design classes).
