ID Option for Film and Photography

Exploring media with the future in mind.

The Integrated Digital (ID) Option is a hybrid stream combining students from both the Film and Photography programs into specialized stream of production and technical courses with particular emphasis on digital media. The ID Option aligns itself with the traditions of film and photography while at the same time pushing the boundaries and spanning other applied and artistic disciplines.

The focus of the ID Option is quite broad in order to cultivate student production in areas such as 3D modeling/animation, motion graphics, multi-channel video, creative coding, interactive exhibition design, projection mapping, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), visual effects (VFX), video game design, and much more. Students can elect to enter the ID Option after completing the first two years of either the Film or Photography programs.

Push the boundaries.

What's in it for you?

Many Image Arts graduates go on to work in multimedia related fields. But it has been found that after graduating they often need to further develop digital skills on their own in order to do so. The ID Option is designed to focus on certain specialized digital skills and creative tools so that students are better prepared to work in this way upon graduation.

We offer an alternate production stream for Film and Photography students in third and fourth years. Students entering the ID Option still receive a BFA as either a Film or Photography major, but with a specialization in Integrated Digital Media.
