What Our Students Do

Actively producing work is a core part of the FNMS experience. Employers and internship providers are no longer interested in what classes students have taken; they want to know what you’ve done; what you’ve made.

As a FNMS major, you will make multiple films in Production I: Visual Storytelling. You will code a program in Robots, Games, and Problem Solving. You will produce knowledge and scholarship in Intro to Film Studies.


Please check out some of the amazing things our students have made.
