Romone Reeves, 2023 digital filmmaking graduate, and Sarah Mann, assistant professor of digital filmmaking, were featured in an article in Sunday’s Buffalo News.

Reeves and Mann discussed Villa Maria’s digital filmmaking program – the only one of its kind in Western New York – and the College’s short-term certificate programs. In the filmmaking program, you can expect a hands-on experience. You’ll be working with actual cameras and editing with the same equipment as the professionals in our brand new Digital Media Arts Center. Our filmmaking certificate programs — in grip and electric and on-set production assistant — are delivered bootcamp style, so you get the fundamental skills you need to walk out of Buffalo Filmworks — where the classes are hosted — an onto a professional film set. (This is especially convenient considering Filmworks is the area’s largest major motion picture film studio.)
Dr. Giordano named 3 partnerships the College has formed that help drive the College’s initiatives forward: Buffalo natives and actors Bill Fichtner and Addison Henderson as well as Tim Clark, Buffalo’s film commissioner, and Buffalo Filmworks.
