MICA's Film & Video, housed in the JHU-MICA Film Centre, shares space with the College’s MFA in Filmmaking program and Johns Hopkins’ undergraduate and graduate programs in film and media. The major gives visual artists the skills to produce, examine, and critique moving images of all kinds. You will study the history of fine artists working in the medium and gain sound technical skills in creating time-based art through projects in the field and in the studio. The ability to delve into a variety of electives and film genres, from experimental to installation to documentary, lets you explore and experiment as you realize film and video's full potential for personal expression. If you are interested in narrative and documentary film, you can pursue the department's Filmmaking concentration. In addition to fundamental core courses focusing on the moving image, students are introduced to specific disciplines including video art, narrative production, documentary and screenwriting. All students also take Film I and Sound I. Shooting 16 mm film teaches students to see light and becomes an aesthetic choice students have for further projects. All Film and Video majors are also required to take an internship.
