In DMD, we teach DSLR cinematography: you’ll learn camera settings, composition, lighting and audio. Here are some samples of students integrating motion graphics into their video production.

Once students have mastered basic camera and lighting, we move on to advanced digital filmmaking techniques with a focus on storytelling.
There is more and more demand for video production as seemingly everyone wants a video produced for their website or social media feed. Often these videos are story-based documentary-style profiles. In the video and motion graphics major, you will learn the art of storytelling as well as the technical aspects of filmmaking: shooting, lighting, audio, editing, and colour correction. Here are some sample videos produced by DMD students:
