OUR BELIEFS

There is no limit on intellectual capacity and talent when opportunity is provided.

Student choice creates a necessary student voice and ultimately a necessary presence in the entertainment industry.

A student-led, democratic development process facilitates deep learning.

Individual and team reflection is critical to student learning, growth, and successful film productions.

The student is the project, and the film is the medium.
