The Digital Media and Design Program (DMAD) at Skyline College concentrates on digital imaging and digital filmmaking. The digital imaging courses are centered around production skills such as image selection, image editing, retouching, compositing, and file preparation for print and screen. The digital filmmaking courses are focused on production. Students will learn about the three phases of filmmaking (pre-production, production, and post-production) as well as camera operation, composition, screenwriting, directing, crew positions, editing, data wrangling, and audio recording and mixing. Career management and guidance are also explored. The 12-unit Certificate of Specialization in Basic Digital Filmmaking provides foundational knowledge and skills in digital filmmaking production.
