Hi everyone! I have just applied to Chapman but I didn't see a page for application fee payment... Should I be worried? How do I pay for it???
I also didn't see the page for application fee payment...Did you resolve it?
I've had the same issue, did anyone figure it out??
What is the difference between the two-year MFA in Film and Television Producing and the three-year MFA in Film Production?
If you apply for the three-year film production program, you must choose one of four areas of study (directing, cinematography, editing, or sound design). The two-year Producing program goes through how to produce film and television projects by emphasizing both the creative and business elements that it entails. Hope this helps!

What's the vibe at Dodge competitiveness-wise? USC SCA is known to be pretty cutthroat competitive where as LMU SFTV actually markets itself as not being so competitive but more of a collaborative environment. Wondering where Chapman/Dodge falls in the mix?
