Moving Image Arts at UL
Moving Image Arts focuses on the study, production, and creative uses of moving images. The scope includes film and television, animation, video games, and interactive media. This major is designed to prepare you for creative careers blending art and technology.
The Moving Image Arts program is dedicated to the mastery and mindful application of Cinematic Language. Thorough analysis coupled with real-world application of the tools used by filmmakers and media content creators to convey their message, creative stories and products are created for a target audience.
Our program blends theory, art, technique to develop student artists. You will learn how to channel your own creativity, develop and create meaningful projects, while fully embracing the specifics related to the media format, the context, the audience, and the core nature of the topic.
Special emphasis is placed on real-world models and equivalences: Assignments become client needs, content reflects societal values, media projects strengthen your marketability and enrich your resume and reel.
Our Strength: The College of Liberal Arts
The fact that our program is embedded in the College of Liberal Arts perfectly completes our core Moving Images Arts mission: it enables our young filmmakers and artists to acquire an understanding of humanities which is simply necessary for any visual storyteller and media content creator. This includes, but is not limited to: study societal values and foundations, ability to do analytical and relevant research, acquire an open mind to foreign culture (in part thanks to the learning of foreign languages), build critical and analytical written arguments and compelling stories, as well as being given the ambition and skills to dive into any given culture or community in order to study it, understand it, and in turn, portray it in the most authentic way.
