  • The Filmmaking program emphasis is twofold:
    • Cross-disciplinary courses that give the students the knowledge and understanding of all the aspects of visual storytelling enabling them to direct and communicate with their collaborators and to fully express their ideas on film or video.
    • Hands-on-film teaching where the students “learn by doing” in a collaborative environment. This lets the student develop his own “creative voice” through teamwork. The students have the opportunity to work in most film and digital formats including 16mm, 35mm and HD, including the latest Red and Panasonic HD cameras.
  • The Cinematography major is specifically designed to give students professional preparation for a career as a film or digital cinematographer. This is accomplished through theoretical courses and practical exercises as well as extensive “hands-on-film” work where students will shoot their classmates’ productions allowing the students to master the technical and aesthetic principles of cinematography.
    The students will be introduced to a wide variety of electrical and camera equipment - Steadicam, Crane, Dolly, etc.


EICAR offers two degrees 

  • Master of Fine Arts is a highly personalized 2 year program designed for students who have either a Bachelor’s degree in cinema or Fine Arts or who have had extensive professional experience.

    In the second year the emphasis is on the student’s third term project with the possibility to major in Cinematography. Students have additional required courses in their major as well as workshops, and one-to-one tutoring.
