Marylhurst University Film Group

The film group at Marylhurst University aims to bring together the creative minds of students interested in the craft of film. The group's objectives are to practice the art and form of filmmaking, which includes cinematography, lighting, sound, editing, scriptwriting, music and theory. The only way to practice the craft is to start making films, so we will be working within the group and the community of Marylhurst in order to accomplish that end. Our ultimate goal is to form friendships and partnerships that last beyond graduation, as it is true that no one succeeds in anything alone. Through practice and creative collaboration we hope to start producing films of merit, no matter the different genre of the films we decide to make. For more information, email timothy.moran437@marylhurst.edu.
