AWM Educational Enterprise

Cinema and Digital Media

Our department focuses on new forms of storytelling in a transformed field, such as fiction, documentary, experimental, animated, interactive films produced for or publicized on digital platformsAnother distinguishing feature of our department is a series of intensive studio courses that constitute the keystones of our curriculum. These studio courses are co-taught by multiple instructors, and combine practical and creative skills with theoretical knowledge of the field. Our program has an emphasis on creative practice. Rather than serving to narrowly defined occupational functions dictated by the industry, we intend to graduate creative individuals who possess critical thinking and aesthetic skills along with technical ones, who have the ability to work in open ended creative contexts.
