LANSING COMMUNITY COLLEGE

 

CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Motion Picture Production

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0902  (Effective Fall 2004 ? Summer 2009)

 

Since the first film screening in 1895, motion pictures have grown into one of the world's most influential communication media and the United States' second leading export. The Motion Picture Production degree gives students extensive hands-on experience in creative and technical filmmaking skills, and it provides the opportunity to build a demonstration reel showcasing a student's ability.  Filmmakers usually work in teams, each member specializing in one field such as cinematography, sound recording, lighting, special effects, or animation. While most films are produced by California companies, there are motion pictures made in every state. Filmmakers may work as independent contractors or find employment in companies that rent facilities, sell equipment, or contract services for film productions. 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.
