Students who dream of working in movies should start with the Film/Video degree to prepare them to work on several types of single-camera production. First-time students seeking this degree should start with Film/Video Aesthetics (MPTV 1111) and Film/Video History (MPTV 1113), as well as the Intro class. Advanced students should take Pre-Production (MPTV 2031, Emphasis on Film), Film/Video Directing (MPTV 2133), and Film/Video Production (MPTV 2131).
