Cut, splice, apply special effects – learn to blend the audio and visual elements of a film to transport the audience into a new world.

Specialize in bringing visual concepts to life in innovative ways through audio, video, photography, illustration, animation, and cinematic techniques with our Editing (Motion Graphics) concentration. Motion graphics are different from typical animation because they are not story-based and often represent shapes and forms, such as logos for brands.

For Filmmaking students who aspire to be editors, expanding your repertoire with this valuable and exciting skill set will give you essential cutting-edge tools to succeed in the industry.

The Motion Graphics concentration allows you to:

  • Create, design, and implement motion graphics for time-based projects, such as film and broadcast titles, web ads, trailers, music videos, graphics for mobile devices, and time-based exhibition displays;
  • Learn how to strategize, plan, execute, and evaluate motion design projects from conception to completion;
  • Study each level of the process of creating motion pieces: ideation, storyboarding, key framing, editing, animation, image making, typography, production, and camerawork;
  • Produce effective motion pieces that engage audiences and convey information quickly;
  • Practice giving and receiving constructive feedback and collaborating with others on projects; and
  • Expand your professional portfolio and position yourself as a versatile media professional upon graduation.
