The digital filmmaking program at KCAI is an environment that cultivates leaders in the rapidly changing world of digital technology. The program approaches digital filmmaking as a multidisciplinary hybrid of installation, interactive media, performance art, Web production, public and community art, sound design and experimental animation, as well as experimental and narrative digital film production and post-production.
Active hands-on-learning experiences, intense engagement with faculty and peers and development of critical thinking skills directed toward the future of electronic arts prepare our graduates for thriving multifaceted careers within the dynamic global economy.
Central to digital filmmaking’s philosophy is the concentration on individual student creativity and vision fostered by vigorous training in research, project development and management skills. In addition, students gain critical technical capabilities that prepare them as competitive candidates in both the art and industry worlds by way of a variety of technical instructions and required internships within the professional world.
