Pros
  • Attentive teachers, interesting and varied curriculum, taught great tips and tricks to navigate after graduation, help with finding a job while attending/graduated
Cons
  • Sometimes difficult to get into certain classes, favoritism
It would be good to start this off by saying this school is definitely unique compared to other Film University/Colleges. By Day 1 I was getting some hands on experience in a mock studio located in their somewhat small campus. But don't let that fool you. It's actually quite impressive that this building is able to house the amount of stuff they have. ADR booths, foley booth, editing bays, 2 small sound stages, a working TV studio set with multiple cameras, and more. This school also is set up so that the whole building is pretty much a set. And when I say that, I mean that you can literally set up a camera anywhere and shoot.

Teachers are mostly working (or have worked) industry professionals. Their insight is invaluable. Especially if you end up with one of the good ones. Only negative thing I found at this school is that teachers sometimes favor other students. I felt excluded from a few classes that interested me because I wasn't close with the right teacher. I'm not the only person who experienced this as well. That's something I hope doesn't exist anymore.

Other than that one negative experience, I learned everything I needed from this school and I've been working in the industry 2 months after graduation all the way up to today (4 years). They also offer Summer Camps too, I believe. If you have any interest in this school, I'd absolutely recommend you check it out and see what it has to offer. I got what I put into this school. If you do the same you could get a great experience as well.

BOTTOM LINE: The experience, in my opinion, is up to you. You could get a ton out of it and really pick all your teacher's brains, or you could coast through and end up in retail after you graduate. It's all up to you and how badly you want to learn from these people. It may not be prestigious or well-known, but you can definitely take a lot from this school to build your future.
