Understanding the fundamentals of filmmaking is as important in the Internet age as understanding the written word was in the age of the printing press.
The name "Motion Pictures" is simple and all-encompassing: movies, television, cell phone movies, cinema history, docs, features, shorts...plus everything in between and out there on the edges.
Bill McDonald, head of the UCLA film school, put it perfectly:
"We train students to fiercely articulate a clear, unique idea and to guide that idea through the most collaborative process for making art ever invented by humankind. In what field of human endeavor will it not be an advantage for our students to understand how to lead a group of collaborators through a complex series of steps, moving as a unit toward a common goal, in an efficient and cost effective way?"
That's something worth learning. We hope you'll agree. Apply now!
