The director’s vision is expressed throughout the curriculum, encompassing all aspects of filmmaking, from screenwriting to postproduction.
- You begin making films starting in your first semester at SVA.
- You work in collaboration with teams of teachers in an integrated curriculum.
- You write, rehearse, shoot and edit your ideas throughout the production cycle—working with classmates who will be the cinematographers, editors and writers of the future.
- You work with accomplished actors from the professional community of New York theater, film and television.
Fourth year, you dedicate to your thesis film—working closely with an advisor on this ambitious project. At the end of the year, your film will premiere on one of the largest screens in NYC, at SVA’s state-of-the-art theater before an audience of friends, family and industry insiders.
