Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Degree

Filmmaking: Production and Dramatic Writing provides UK students with the opportunity to study and practice the art and craft of filmmaking by taking a sequence of courses offered in the Department of Theatre & Dance and the School of Art & Visual Studies in dramatic writing and film/video production leading to a capstone course in visual storytelling. Students completing the five course, fifteen credit hour certificate program will have learned filmmaking skills from certificate faculty with training and experience in the field of video production, filmmaking and screenwriting and will have had the opportunity to write and produce their own short films. Successful completion of the certificate program will position students for careers in a variety of entertainment platforms and prepare students for entrance into graduate film schools.

Any UK student with a demonstrated interest in film/video production and dramatic writing can apply to be admitted to the certificate program, on a rolling basis (during registration windows for fall and spring semesters) by submitting the following: a 5-7 page creative writing sample, a sample short (3-5 minute) film/video, a written statement demonstrating an interest and commitment to film/video production and dramatic writing, and a resume.
