Student Work

UVU’s Digital Cinema Production program gives students the opportunity to make multiple projects each semester. As they advance in the program, their work becomes more advanced, and the expectations for quality and technical skill increase. Each graduating senior is required to participate in a Senior Capstone Project that is expected to be at a professional quality level. Advanced student projects are often accepted into competitive film festivals and other competitions throughout the world and function as a “calling card” for future professional opportunities. Capstone Projects can be a narrative short film, a documentary or other non-fiction film, or a feature-length screenplay.

 

Senior Capstone Feature Screenplay Table Read

Each year professional actors participate in a table read of excerpts from feature length screenplays written by graduating seniors. Watch actors such as Debra Jo Rupp (That 70s Show), Brian Dietzen (NCIS), Kevin Rankin (Justified, Breaking Bad), and others participate in our annual event on April 29, 2020 (Left to Right, top to bottom: Jill Farley, Kevin Rankin, UVU Professor Duane Andersen, Terryn Westbrook, Kristin Slaysman, UVU Professor Alex Nibley, Brian Dietzen, Bob Turton, Mark David Christenson, Debra Jo Rupp).
