Mission & Strategy

VCUarts Cinema is a 3-year film production program based out of Richmond, Virginia—a rapidly growing film & television hub on the US East Coast. The program strives to produce classically informed, technically proficient, and academically empowered graduates.

Year One: Visual Storytelling. Students write and produce sketches shot on digital utilizing elements of mise en scene and montage; attend workshops led by upperclassmen on G&E, camera, sound, editing, etc.

Year Two: Production. Students learn the roles found on a professional film set. The class produces a 35mm short.

Year Three: Business, Production Design & Film Theory. Students work on practical skills such as pitching concepts, negotiation, and business strategy. Students study aesthetic, theoretical, and philosophical elements of storytelling.

Summer Intensives: Students write and produce 6 shorts on 35mm over the course of 8 weeks. The intensive is taken after the second and third years.
