Description:Film and video products entertain us, challenge us, impact our understanding of current events, heighten our awareness of social issues, and even influence our buying decisions. Be a part of this cultural phenomenon, and enrol in the Film and Video Production (FVP) program. The FVP Program prepares you for a career in one of Canada's fastest growing industries. You will learn the fundamentals of scriptwriting, producing, directing, cinematography, sound recording, editing and the business aspects of the film and video industries.

FVP is delivered in a unique environment that combines traditional teaching methods and hands-on production and project models. In the second year, students have the opportunity to specialize, and are further assisted in finding a practicum opportunity for additional, firsthand experience and contacts in the industry. The program is two years in length with each academic year divided into two 15-week semesters. All Film and Video Production students are required to participate in laptop learning, a package of services that includes a PC laptop computer, a suite of software, full Internet access, training and technical support.
