Digital Cinema Arts is cutting edge communication. It is technology. It is pixels, bits, CCDs, algorithms, lasers, and liquid crystal displays. But that’s just one part of the picture.
At its core, Digital Cinema Arts is imagination. It is vision and creativity. It is collaboration and synergy. It is drama, suspense, beauty, and meaning. Although we surround ourselves with the tools of our trade, and while they are an integral part of what we do, Digital Cinema Arts at Lindenwood is fundamentally about the art of storytelling. The technology is important, but in the end it is merely a means to transmit the medium. The LCDs and software of today are no more constant than the vacuum tubes and typewriters that were part of our lives not long ago. The ability to craft a compelling story, on the other hand, is timeless, enduring, and one of the most valuable skills for any professional communicator.
The Digital Cinema Arts degree at Lindenwood is designed to give graduates broad and useful knowledge and experience. In the core classes, students learn principles that are the keys to everything from creating an entertaining movie to producing an effective informational video. Each student tends to forge a unique career path, and the opportunities that exist now might not be the opportunities that exist after graduation. But whatever the opportunities may be, the abilities to meet challenges, engage audiences, provoke thought, and elicit emotions will always be at the top of the list of qualifications.
