On Saturday, April 21, 2018, from 1:00pm – 3:00pm, the Clayton State University Film and Digital Media Center, in the Continuing and Professional Education Division, will open its doors to the public to “Meet & Greet” Students and Faculty in their new Film and Digital Media Certificate Program at the Clayton State University Film Studio, located at 9147 Tara Boulevard, Jonesboro, GA 30236.
In addition to talking with faculty and students and seeing the 10,000 square foot film studio where classes and hands on training takes place, guests will have an opportunity to see a Special Screening of one of the films produced by FDMC students.
The Film and Digital Media Certificate offers three Tracks for students to choose from: Writing, Production and Post-Production. The entire 4-Course program takes approximately 35 weeks to complete. The first three courses meet 7 weeks each and the final course meets for 14 weeks. The boot camp-style approach within each Track fosters an environment where key instruction and lecture combines with hands on practical production instruction. The end goal is actual films being produced that reflect all that the students have learned in the program reflecting a level of aesthetic and expertise head and shoulders above similar programs.
Students who began the Program when it launched September 2017, are now approaching the end of the program and will have a public premiere of their films in late June. Director of the FDMC Certificate Program, Glynn Beard, said “We are looking forward to the premiere of our first graduating class of our new Film & Digital Media Certificate Program. The students have worked hard and been amazing problem solvers for both creative and practical challenges that they have overcome as beginning filmmakers. They have shown talent for a promising future career in filmmaking “.
In addition to making films, students in the program learn about short form content as well as developing content for TV, digital, mobile and other formats. Each Track is developed to prepare students for the final course in the program, Workshop II, where they have an opportunity to pitch and produce a film from concept to completion.
For those interested in pursuing their dreams of becoming a Writer, Producer, or Director, they may apply to the program, now through the May 4 deadline for sessions that begin the second week of May, at this link: http://www.clayton.edu/Portals/917/Revised%20General%20FDM%20Certificate%20Application.pdf.
