Welcome from Our Artistic Director,
Killer Films' Christine Vachon

vachon Located at the The Stony Brook Manhattan Center in Midtown Manhattan, our MFAs in Film and Television Writing draw a one-of-a-kind community of filmmakers and television writers.

With more than 100 films and television series under our belt over the past 30 years, our indie production company, Killer Films , set out to build a new type of curriculum at Stony Brook — a practical education in all forms of visual storytelling, and at state university prices.

Our mission is to train artists to be skilled, nimble, and empowered so they can build lifelong careers in today's exploding and ever-changing world of film and television. We support the unique vision of each of our student artists, while our in-the-practice professors teach in-depth craft to directors, screenwriters, producers. 

The focus of all faculty is on you and the diversity of stories you bring.
