Welcome to Media Arts
The Media Arts Department offers students the opportunity to work in a variety of hands-on settings, producing works that not only require creativity, but also problem-solving skills. The courses are designed to introduce students to the production side of the television and film industry, while offering students the opportunity to work with professionals as well. Students in the Media Arts Department participate in a variety of projects, including commercials, music videos, short films, and visual and special effects.
The Media Arts Department is also the home of Spartan 2 News, Mountain Brook's student-run newscast. This program allows students the opportunity to work in all areas of production, including behind-the-scenes and on-camera for news programs, live sports events such as football and basketball games, and other sports and entertainment programming.
In Media Arts, students work in depth with creative software such as Adobe Photoshop, Premiere Pro and After Effects, with a goal of Adobe Certification at the completion of the program.
