Thomas Legnard - Creative Sound Processes


Innovative, Experimental, Creative

Binghamton University’s Cinema Department develops artists and creative thinkers in film, video and theory who are willing to explore the experimental.

A strong history of underground and independent production and criticism has made our trailblazing department an antidote to the Hollywood industry model.

Learn how cinema works – from a social and historical standpoint, to the mechanics of making movies. The production program in film and electronic media focuses not only on developing technical proficiency, but also artistic discovery and expression. 

Our award-winning faculty offer a variety of courses and lectures on topics ranging from the technical to the theoretical. Visiting Artist's Series and the Harpur Cinema inspire ideas, while our facilities allow students to make them a reality.
