Film and Video Production Concentration

Stories have the power to inspire, inform and entertain. And arguably, no medium is more effective at telling them than film.

The art of visual storytelling is booming. Netflix. Amazon Prime. Apple TV. They’ve built their empires around shows, movies and documentaries that educate and entertain. Where will you find your niche in a culture that can’t seem to get enough visual content?

As a film and video production student within the cinematic arts major at George Fox, you will write, shoot, direct and edit your own films – and learn to do so with the artistic sophistication today’s audiences expect.

And here’s more good news: Newer content delivery methods, such as mobile devices or online TV, present an evolving range of career opportunities. Upon graduation, you may create media for instructional purposes, find work in a film studio, produce video for churches, nonprofits or businesses, or make documentary films. So many possibilities!
