Capture your vision and share your story.
Director. Editor. Cinematographer. VFX or video artist. Art director. Dig deeper, and you’ll realize they’re all synonyms for storyteller. That’s what you’ll become as you grow into a career with an education from Lesley University's digital filmmaking program.
Here, you’ll create films that challenge conventional thinking, inspire action, or elicit emotion. With a foundation in cinematography, screen writing, lighting, and editing, and access to unmatched visual effects facilities, you’ll turn your vision into a story that can be produced and distributed.
You'll go beyond the classroom and gain professional experiences with a supported internship or apprenticeship in places like Pixar, FableVision Studios, Film Roman, and Cartoon Network. These experiences will launch you into a career in the rapidly-growing creative economy in film, TV, game design, and more.
As a digital filmmaking major, you'll examine contemporary and historical works. Collaborate with others as you master writing, planning, filming, recording, and post-production techniques. Gain the tools and vocabulary you need to bring your stories to life. And, with our reimagined general education curriculum, you’ll develop the skills needed to succeed in an increasingly complex, diverse, and global world.
Throughout the program, discover ways to evolve your skills and ideas through hands-on filmmaking. Pursue fictional narratives, documentary projects, web-based shorts, and experimental video in our state-of-the-art facilities. Plus, get experience working on professional film productions in Greater Boston through required internships. You'll be prepared for in-demand careers in advertising, broadcasting, publishing, motion pictures, and beyond.
