Department of Motion Pictures and Video Communication

Department of Motion Pictures and Video Communication

The department cultivates the humanities, creativity and professionalism. Our goal is to lead in professional film production education. Students' personal training is based on national cultural and creative industries development plans for this type of creative audio-visual industry. The department offers an undergraduate program with a concentration in Film and Video Production. These concentrations consist of technical instruction and lectures in motion picture studies to provide students with the skills necessary to function in the multifaceted world of audiovisual production. Our approach to media practice is broad enough to address the needs of the independent artist as well as those who wish to enter the industry, and the program also ensures that each student receives personal attention from the faculty. The Department’s development directions will be oriented toward all-around professional training. The four developmental axes includes Digital Video Production, Animation Art Creation, Digital Media Development Production, and Development of Digital Content, in order to enhance the cultural and creative industries.

Curriculum Design

Curriculum is planned from basic to advanced and focuses on enhancing creativity, production, and marketing training. Each component of the training is based on different types of media and production. Production includes feature films, documentaries, animation and TV programs—four professional courses. This complete coverage of the film and television industry is very important to our students' futures in this field. Before students graduate, they have mastered production to integrate learning outcomes. In addition to course contents, the department also mentors students through participation in industry visits and practice. This helps students gain real experience.
