    • MEA 300 1400, Topic: Experimental Film
      • Learn to create unscripted, experimental films. The class covers both theory and practice including shooting and editing. You should first complete one of these media courses: MES 140 or VAT 100 or MMP100. Prof Phil Wiesman,
    • MEA 300 1300, Topic: TV Writing
      • Write a script for a television show and learn from a prof who has worked in the TV industry. You must complete MES 153 Script Writing first. Prof Melanie Oram,
