san jose state university is a pioneer in filmmaking. in 1927 the school produced one of the first 35mm films of the century. it was screened to a cheering crowd and generated some buzz and national attention. film production track officially surfaced in the 50's.

rebuilding a unique film production curriculum is a priority of the program in the new millennium. in the past year, we have built a film editing room, obtained 16mm film cameras, and invested in field grip/lighting equipment. the mission is to give our students the chance to practice filmmaking and utilize related cutting edge technology. our 185-production class gives students the chance to crew, observe, and learn from hollywood professionals about 35mm filmmaking.
