Because of the highly concentrated nature of the instruction, attendance is mandatory throughout – there will be no way for the professor to catch-up a student who misses a class.
Upon successful completion of the DMCT, trainees will have completed a portfolio worthy project consistent with their selected track and representative of their work and learning. They will also receive a certificate of completion from the Connecticut Office of Film, Television & Digital Media for their selected track.
