Film Technology

As Central Florida continues to grow as a major film production center with two major movie giants- Universal Studios and Disney's MGM Studios- located right here in Orlando, there is a corresponding need for trained technicians with skills in making movies.

These areas include: gripping, electrical-lighting, editing, sound, camera, and set construction. Students may specialize in Cinematography or Post-Production. All of the classes are hands-on and are taught by professional film makers. In fact, Valencia's Film Production program has been called "one of the best film schools in the country" by renowned director Steven Spielberg.
