About Bobcat Studios

Bobcat Studios, formerly Bobcat Media Productions, is an award-winning media production organization with the mission to produce professional-quality digital content. We provide students the opportunity to learn and further develop their video production skills outside the classroom. We offer students who have a passion for filmmaking and video production an outlet for their creativity and a community for student-networking. We welcome all students with an interest in the film, television and video production industry. You don’t have to be a Mass Communication major either!
