The Summer Video Institute (SVI) at DeSales University offers students an introduction to the theories and techniques of digital movie making. Working with state-of-the-art technology, students will design, shoot, and edit films of their own creation. Projects focus on equipment and videographic techniques. Each student will produce their own film and contribute to a larger scale production. The days will include lectures, equipment training, production, editing, and screenings. At the end of the program, the final films are celebrated in a festival screening open to invited guests. Upon successful completion of the program, each student with a high school graduation date of 2014 or prior will receive three college-level credits. Students may commute or residence will be provided. Please contact us for more information about our residential option.

SVI has a dual focus: production techniques and storytelling. It's our belief that a positive learning environment creates opportunities for exploration and discovery. Our mission is to promote the media arts as a mode of personal expression, as well as a viable professional career option.
The DeSales University Division of Performing Arts is home to a unique program in the media arts. With the benefit of close association with outstanding programs in theatre and dance, the work of our television and film students is both diverse and inventive. The faculty is comprised of dedicated educators with exceptional credits in their respective fields. It is our committed philosophy of SVI that the study of historical, aesthetic, and ethical topics are essential companions to acquisition of production skills and techniques. Graduates of the TV/Film program work in all capacities of the film and television industries.
