Film Production Emphasis

Production Home

The Film Studies Program at the University of Missouri offers an immersive curriculum in film production, spanning from writing and cinematography to audio engineering and field production. Through hands-on learning experience in all phases of filmmaking students are prepared for a career in the film production industry.

The program combines rigorous technical instruction with aesthetic, historical, and theoretical topics that inspire you to find innovative ways to express yourself through film. Working with established filmmakers, media artists and scholars, our film production students develop their own personal craft and vision as a filmmaker. At each stage of the curriculum students exercise and demonstrate their skills and creativity through class projects. This learning process culminates in the senior capstone film project that serves as the central piece of the graduate’s portfolio.
