University description (as per official university website)
Shoot first and ask questions later. That´s our motto at Columbia College Hollywood ("CCH"). CCH is the international community of future filmmakers where art, academics and ambition all reinforce each other to create a powerful learning experience.
Making your own movie isn´t a privilege here - It’s a requirement. CCH learning is hands-on. Columbia’s professors and instructors are working film professionals, thus the majority of classes are in the evening.
Along with their workplace know-how, our faculty brings you their academic credentials and their artistic drive. You don’t just learn to do what they do; you learn to do it at their rich level of understanding and motivation.
That’s the combination that makes the CCH experience unique - studying principle and theory gets you in touch with your best and deepest talent, while practical production work develops the skills to express that talent to its fullest.
CCH welcomes students from all over the US and all over the world. Their wide mix of backgrounds and cultures, and their common commitment to succeed, make for a special spirit and camaraderie. In this energizing environment students “crew” on each other’s films and learn the networking and collaborative skills so crucial to professional success.
Our graduates are working successfully in all aspects of the entertainment industry in Hollywood and around the world.
