This is the second time I'm applying to the cinematography programme at Dodge College/Chapman University, the first time around I couldn't attend due to the pandemic.

This is my first time applying for an MFA, the only other college I applied to is USC, the application for Chapman was quite simple on the surface but took several reworks to get the best creative output I would assume is required to crack the process.
