For more than 20 years, the Cinema-Television-Radio Department (CTVR) at Saddleback College has been known for giving students hands-on experience. This means students design their film, shoot it, and edit it. CTVR always puts the concept of bringing the “real world” into the classroom as a priority. Shooting on the latest technology including Red Digital Cinema and Final Cut Pro 7 HD, Saddleback offers the full set of filmmaking tools such as dollys, steadicams, and industry-standard lighting, camera, and audio packages. The department’s productions each year are featured in the Newport Beach Film Festival, and students constantly transfer to the top university film schools or they are placed in desirable internships and jobs. Saddleback’s CTVR Department is offering courses designed to help students succeed in the field, including outstanding one-to-two-day workshops for students who want to specialize in a specific area of filmmaking. CTVR continues to teach the approach of concept to final edit in terms of visual storytelling, aesthetics, composition, directing, producing, cinematography, lighting, audio, and editing. CTVR is an elite film school at Saddleback College and was featured in Movie Maker Magazine.
