Film Production

For students who dream of making movies, the Film Production degree program at Webster University provides the knowledge and skills needed to tell their stories.

Film Production majors and minors learn how the people, concepts and technology work together to create a movie. In addition to learning the role of each person on a film set, students study a variety of films to gain production knowledge. The Film Production program offers a systematic and thorough approach in learning the craft and aesthetics of motion picture production in both traditional and digital film formats.

Early in the program, students develop and execute their own projects. Progressing through the Film Production curriculum, undergraduates continue to make their own films or focus on different areas of interest such as directing, producing, editing, animation or visual effects.
