Film Classes

The Media Department is committed to providing high quality training in all areas of film, photography, and graphic design. Students of all experience-levels will be inspired and challenged. While we have a course offering in film being offered currently, we will be adding workshops in photography and graphic design throughout the year.





This class is currently unavailable but we are leaving the description up, as we are working on getting it back in our schedule!


Film and the Art of Storytelling

In this class, students will be taught the basics of cinematography and story creation. Broken into 2 parts, pre-production and production, they will learn how to operate a camera, basic rules of composition and lighting, directing, and sound design. They will then write and produce their own short film under the guidance of a professional cinematographer using some of the latest technology in the industry.

We will talk about the many facets of filmmaking as story telling, including what it means to view film as art and how to engage secular culture from the view of God as creator and artist. Taking time to dive deep into our own stories, we’ll think about our lives in terms of the stories we’ve already written and have yet to write. Everyone has a story to tell, some are fun and exciting and others are broken and painful, and we’ll look at what it means to be authentic and true to those stories. Taught by Chad Bowditch.

Disclaimer: While presenting concepts of film making, we will be looking at examples from the industry. While none of them will present explicit content, they may be pulled from movies that are rated PG13 or R.
