Making your own film is a collaborative effort that requires screenwriters, musicians, producers, directors, and more—which means there’s always a place for you. As a screenwriter, you’ll write a script that students in another class will pitch and eventually bring to life. As a production assistant, you’ll get a first hand look at the filmmaking process while you’re still in one of your early film classes. If audio production is your specialty, you’ll work with musicians to create a powerful soundtrack.

And at the conclusion of your Calvin film classes, you will have produced a film to display at Calvin’s media showcase. It’s a great way for film students to share their work publicly. And the student body gets to witness the creativity that flourishes in the communication department!
