- Give to the College
The College of Motion Picture Arts offers a Master of Fine Arts in Production program that lands you right into high caliber live-action movie production. Working with professional-grade cameras, equipment, and facilities from the start, you are immersed in an intensely collaborative setting where you are challenged to master the art, craft and business of storytelling.
With a six-to-one student to faculty ratio, you work intimately with respected resident and visiting filmmakers to learn all aspects of production from concept to distribution. Dedicated specialists work one-on-one with you to shape your artistic decisions and craft your most compelling story.
Over the course of six semesters, you master the process of production through a hands-on, project-centered curriculum. Using state-of-the-art facilities, equipment, and software, you develop a comprehensive understanding of every aspect of production by completing a series of projects that lead to your festival-quality thesis.
Support from the college continues after you graduate. The school promotes thesis projects in festivals long after you leave campus, and our Director of Alumni selects industry mentors to help guide you in your career. Our alumni have earned a reputation in the industry as innovative, successful filmmakers, and have a 97% industry placement rate within one year of graduation.
Have confidence in your future career in the motion picture industry with an MFA in Production from the Florida State University College of Motion Picture Arts.
