Our experienced faculty will introduce you to industry-standard software and hardware for digital image capture, editing, and compositing. Hands-on learning in the studio and on location emphasizes creative and critical thinking skills, principles of visual literacy, technical processes of video/media technologies, and the planning and management of video/media production.

"As a kid, I always loved movies, and going to UW-Stout has really helped me work towards making my own. Whether that be creative or commercial work, I feel that Stout can help you get there, especially with all the hands-on training. Best of all, you’ll make connections, which are the most important part of video production."
