Minor in Film
A Film minor is for students interested in the film industry, television commercial production, or corporate video production. Evangel offers students hands-on training in shooting, directing, producing, writing, and editing all types of film-related projects. Students will study film history, aesthetics, and scriptwriting while being trained in the art of film and video production.
The Film minor is a video production program that educates the student to use his or her skills, intellect, and creativity to make an impact in culture, ministry, and the entertainment business. The Film minor is a mix of art and technology that offers the student real opportunities to learn the craft in an environment that integrates faith and education. Film courses include subjects such as scriptwriting, video production, audio production, photography, and compositing. These topics are placed within the context of both narrative and documentary filmmaking.
Students in film courses create multiple short films, commercials, montages, and specialty videos. Evangel offers the Film Workshop, where students produce a feature-style film each semester. Students act as director, producer, cinematographer, audio supervisor, camera operator, editor, and many other positions as they work as a team to produce a 45-to-60 minute film. The feature film is shown on a special night at the end of the semester to the public. These films also are featured on the web and local cable access channels.
