Master of Fine Arts in Film and TV production

Loyola Marymount University
Campus Full time September 2017 USA Los Angeles

Los Angeles is the home of the film and television industry, and LMU is in the heart of it all. Our students build relationships with Hollywood professionals and learn the art and science of the industry alongside those who are doing it right now. Proximity means access, and all the major studios are within a half-hour of campus. Plus, the whole town is involved in one way or another. [+]

Best Masters in Film in North America 2017. The LMU School of Film and Television is a premier center for master visual storytelling grounded in humanism, innovation and diversity. The MFA degree is based on a professional academic program and designed to foster original and creative work in film and television production and writing. The emphasis of the three-year, portfolio-based programs is on understanding and mastering visual storytelling in an atmosphere that allows students to explore and express their ideas with ever-increasing creative and technical skills. Graduates leave the school industry-and festival- ready. Students earn an MFA in one of the three areas of emphasis: The Writing and Producing for Television program prepares students for a professional career in the television industry. Small class sizes (each cohort is a maximum of eight) facilitate close collaboration among students in a non-competitive, workshop environment. In this unique program, LMU’s graduates leave with a portfolio of pilots and a webisode or trailer for a series they will write and produce. The Screenwriting program teaches students how to think like a screenwriter through a progression of rigorous classes, constantly updated to ensure relevance in an evolving industry. Writers graduate with a minimum of three polished feature screenplays and two television scripts; they also leave with a solid understanding of the industry and the business skills necessary to succeed. In the Film & Television Producing program, students gain experience in the crafts of filmmaking – writing, directing, producing, cinematography, editing and sound design – with an emphasis on experiential learning. Students can stress fiction or documentary production, and are encouraged to explore both. They are required to shoot three films during their studies, including their thesis film. The Production MFA emphasizes experiential learning and small class size. This facilitates hundreds of hours on two dedicated production stages and in fully furnished scene and prop shops. And you’ll get plenty of practice on advanced lighting and grip equipment and Red and Canon C300 digital cameras. You’ll expand your production skills working one-on-one with faculty–who are also industry specialists–and learn from visiting instructors who have included visual effects supervisor Richard Taylor (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, District 9) and producer Paula Wagner (Jack Reacher, Mission: Impossible III). The school’s tapeless orientation eases post-production. Your work is saved to a central server so you can call up your project from any computer station at any stage, and then screen your finished film in Mayer Theater. You’ll come into the graduate program in Film & Television Production with some expertise, an idea of your creative identity and a growing professional network. You will exit transformed–and ready to start your career. [-]
