TRFT Production and Scholarship

Yes, we are really THAT good.

Our productions are unique in that, because of the marriage between our Theatre program and our RTVF program in terms of production, technology, acting directing, performance, scenery design, costume design, etc. Our faculty are award-winning producers and directors and cinematographers. Plus, Spartan Film Studios offers students a truly unique opportunity to participate in one of San José State University’s most adventurous programs. Under the guidance of studio directors Barnaby Dallas and Nick Martinez, along with expert instructors and industry professionals, students are given a full range of film production experience that has resulted in multiple feature-length and short subject films.
