Digital Film Industry Professionals

They are award-winning writers, directors, producers, cinematographers, and editors, and they teach from experience gained first hand on film and television sets of all sizes.

Each of them strives to provide UVU students with the best training in current production methods, practices, and technologies.

“UVU's DGM Cinema Production program took me from someone who had a passion for movies and helped me learn the theory, practical knowledge, and gave me the opportunities and network I needed to be able to direct the movies I wanted to make. Ultimately it gave me the foundation to make a career in video production.”

— Austin Wilson, 47 Minutes Producer
