Moving Image Design

Learn to design, create and present digital short films in the only 15-week accelerated certificate program of its kind offered in Ontario.

Program Highlights

In this unique, accelerated program (two semesters of full-time study completed in fifteen weeks), you will create digital short films in an inspiring, natural environment.

Short films are defined by their duration—a two-minute YouTube video clip; a 15-second pop-up ad on a website; or a one-minute movie trailer playing in theatres—and can have a commercial or visual arts application. Applications such as motion graphics and animation, video and sound compositions, film or slide-based installations, large interactive art installations, digital magazines, and live action will all be considered and covered in this course.

The need for professional digital content continues to grow and our program graduates go on to work in advertising, design, film, education, or in a variety of cultural-sector settings.

You could be the next YouTube star/influencer!
