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. Valencia's nationally recognized Film Production Technology program is a selective admission, limited enrollment program and trains students for entry-level positions in six major areas of film production. 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.

This program offers specializations in:

  • Cinematography
  • Post-production

Primary Occupations:

  • Camera Assistant
  • Editor
  • Lighting Technician
  • Set Design Assistant
  • Production Manager
  • Grip
  • Sound Technician
