Compass College of Cinematic Arts is a premier, faith-based film college. Its accelerated program is set in a unique, conservatory-like environment. Through high-end training and an extensive hands-on mentoring process, young artists - future writers, designers, producers, directors, and executives - bring forth a distinctly creative and technical skill set, a strong work ethic, and a Christ-centered focus that fosters entrepreneurial success and serves as an asset on film and television shoots, and in executive studio and corporate settings.Compass students learn the art of filmmaking from script to screen. In addition to learning video and film production, the students are exposed to "tradigital" (social, digital, and traditional) marketing content and design elements, such as graphics, continuity, art production, sound, and music. They also learn the business of the film and multimedia industries, which includes creating business plans, management, marketing, contracts and negotiation, budgeting, pitching projects, and distribution.CCCA offers an Associates of Applied Science degrees in Film and Media Production and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Cinematic and Media Arts. Graduates go on to work in various areas of the entertainment industry, including on productions for major feature films and episodic television programs and for top media companies. Some alumni also embrace their entrepreneurial skills by forming independent production companies or by joining marketing departments and agencies to serve corporations, small businesses, and churches in meeting their visual and digital marketing needs.
