Solebury School has recently expanded this area of focus, bringing on new faculty members with film industry experience and offering more classes, from Digital Filmmaking to Video Editing to Screenplay Writing.

In addition to honing skills such as storytelling and camera operation, our film courses also teach invaluable real-life skills such as project management, learning to work in groups, and how to take criticism.

Our Film Department utilizes a suite of iMacs™ for our video editing software, Premiere Pro. In Solebury School's film studio students can record everything from short films to podcasts. The spacious studio is located in our Barn Complex and has lofted high ceilings, sound-proofing, and state-of-the art equipment. Decades ago, the room was a residential meeting space for boys who lived on campus.

Brian Pearson, Film Department Head


“I’m thrilled we have such a talented and experienced team of educators in film. Not only do students get the chance to do hands-on, creative work which results in a tangible product, they also learn invaluable life skills. Having observed some of these classes myself, I know our students are loving these offerings while learning a ton.” —Director of Studies Rick Tony
