The Filmmaking program at The Guthrie Center is one of the most unique, creative and innovative programs in Spring Branch today. This multi Emmy Award-winning program is taught by industry professionals and teaches students how to take an idea and transform it into a professional broadcast-ready film.

Students learn the fine art of media communication through many hands-on production experiences and learn how to write, pitch, direct, edit and produce everything from a Public Service Announcement to Documentaries, Short Films, Music Videos, television talk shows and more. Many of our professional productions are broadcast on our own Vimeo channel and can be watched on HCC-TV and public access channel 17.

While students learn the technical aspects and techniques of professional filmmaking, more importantly, they learn how to build and manage projects and see them to completion. Our program teaches problem-solving, time management, troubleshooting, teamwork and collaborative compromise as students work with a diverse network of students, adults and outside clients in order to produce their many film projects.

Film students are highly encouraged to take their work to the next level as we require them to enter their video projects in film festivals. Students are also required to produce a demo reel and production portfolio of all of their works in order to show prospective employers or post-secondary advisors. Many of the Digital Filmmaking students at The Guthrie Center gain recognition, employment and internship opportunities as a direct result of their work and professional video productions created in our program.
