Grand Canyon University Introduces Online Degree Program in Digital Film
PHOENIX, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The explosive growth of social media, widespread use of tablets and smartphones, and increasing need for video of every nature are fueling workplace demand for digital film experts. In response, Grand Canyon University's College of Fine Arts and Production has expanded its Bachelor of Arts in Digital Film degree program online with an emphasis in either production or screenwriting.
Classes will begin in January 2013 as part of a 120-credit-hour bachelor's degree program that includes a strong foundation in narrative storytelling and technical skills, along with hands-on training to help students deliver poignant messages in film and video.
"More than ever before, companies are realizing the power of video and they are seeking to leverage this medium," said Gregg Elder, director of GCU's digital film program.
GCU's goal is to teach students not only the fundamentals of film production and narrative techniques, but also provide more specialized skills development in creating video for social media, planning and shooting corporate and how-to videos, and filming live events for mass consumption, Elder said.
