About This Program

There’s more than one way to tell a story, and more than one way to relay that story to the world. In a culture where millions of people turn to the digital realm for news and entertainment, content creators must be able to adapt content for a variety of mediums.

When you study digital cinematography at Full Sail, you’ll be outfitted for this changing landscape by pairing knowledge of the latest technological tools with a strong foundation in storytelling. You’ll learn to create dynamic content by emulating the workflow of an actual studio – beginning with script development, production planning, and art design and location shooting, followed by directing, filming, postproduction, and distribution.
