Cinematic Arts

Direct Your Career

OCC’s Cinematic Arts Degree Program includes both production and film studies, giving you a foundation to take your career in the direction you choose. From producing your own films — to pursuing film studies or production at a university — to being a part of the growing movie industry in Michigan, OCC gives you the right start.

The film industry has come to Michigan and many private schools are offering film career training. These programs focus on short-term training, often specializing in one area of production. The OCC Cinematic Arts program has been designed to give you in-depth understanding of the nature of film as an art form.

OCC’s Cinematic Arts program provides an in-depth understanding of the entire movie making process, and prepares students to work in many areas, including:

  • Film Studies
  • Editing
  • Directing
  • Animation
  • Screenwriting
  • Sound design
  • Digital Cinematography

Transfer to a University

The Cinematic Arts curriculum has been created with transferring in mind. Most credits will be accepted for entry into film programs at state universities including Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Oakland and Wayne State.
