DePaul's Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film and Television program emphasizes the technical aspects of media production and explores the relationship between cinema production technologies and creative artistic expression.
As a Film and Television student, you will gain practical production experience through classes, internships and DePaul's Project Bluelight program, where you will work with other students and faculty members on a full-length feature film or independent short productions.
You will take some classes at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, where you will learn your craft on a DePaul dedicated soundproof soundstage, and work in the same space with professional directors, lighting technicians, filmmakers, set designers and actors.
DePaul offers a Comedy Filmmaking concentration, in collaboration with The Second City. You’ll attend classes at The Second City’s Harold Ramis Film School, where you’ll learn improvisation, comedy theory and comedic filmmaking – giving you the tools to create, develop and showcase your comedic writing, from the script to the screen.
Take advantage of the “DePaul LA Quarter.” It’s a ten-week immersion program that enables you to experience the inner workings of Hollywood first-hand. You will live in Los Angeles, take classes on a historic studio lot, and intern at high profile companies.
