Lights. Camera. Action!

Work in teams to create short films, news segments, and documentaries. Study the exposure triangle, composition, lighting, editing, and more in order to capture beautiful photos. This class partners with Graphic Design to create the annual Tech Times magazine.

“Digital Media prepared me for so much more than the industry. I almost didn’t go to tech and that’s scary, because it was best decision I made as a teenager and where I discovered my passion. When my first animation “came to life,” in that moment I realized I wanted to continue doing that for the rest of my life. DM prepared me for so much more than the industry.”

Tommy Marshall, Student

“Central Tech helped me learn the basics. With that I have shot commercials, been on film sets, become a well known sports photographer, and sports broadcaster. Central Tech was the best decision I made as a high school student. It put me 5 steps ahead in my career. I am grateful for all the opportunities that tech gave me.”
