LANSING COMMUNITY COLLEGE

 

CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Motion Picture Direction

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0900  (Effective Fall 2004- Summer 2009)

 

Motion pictures bring together elements from all the other arts: writing, photography, theater, music, dance, and all of the visual arts. The Motion Picture Direction program gives students extensive practical experience working with other artists and technicians to create dramatic, documentary, experimental, or animated films. The degree is designed for students who wish to become screenwriters, directors, and film editors, the people who guide the film story-telling process. Entry-level jobs include production assistants as well as apprentices and interns in specialized roles with independent film production companies, advertising firms, and major film studios. Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.
