Student Work

Our students are involved in all aspects of filmmaking; they write, direct, shoot, create animation, and edit their own films. Their works result in narratives, documentaries, and experimental films that artistically represent their individual interests and talents. An area of concentration is chosen by each of our Digital Media majors in either Visual Media and/or Digital Filmmaking. All students are required to complete a senior capstone film, which incorporates the knowledge and skills gained from their experiences in the Digital Media program. Senior films are screened at the Senior Film Festival and Exhibition.

My Only Sunshine by Chelsea Moore

3-channel video installation

My Only Sunshine is an installation centered around childhood stories of three very different individuals. While they may vary in age, gender, and upbringing, these subjects all share one thing in common: enduring traumatic experiences during childhood. Any instance of abuse is only referenced through the audio and the footage is representative of the escapes these individuals sought during times of pain.

Some of our students’ work may contain sensitive content, and is therefore recommended for mature audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.
