The unique digital film track at UVU has been over ten years in the making. Created by filmmakers, it is a “hands on” filmmaking experience that marries theory and engaged learning by using industry standard scripting, pre-production, production and post-production techniques. By the time students graduate, they will have had an opportunity to be involved in three short films, professional boot camps, internships on professional productions and a capstone two semester Senior Project. Learn more about the production process.

Gripology & Motion Picture Culture
We begin at the beginning. All students learn gripology. We believe even a director needs to understand amperage, how to set a C-stand, pull a cable, push a dolly, fire up an HMI, sweep a floor, manage a camera report and stay focused for ten hours. By the end of their 2nd year they will be ready to step onto a set without stumbling through the eyeline of an actor or taking down a light before it has cooled.
