Looking for a review of UC Berkeley's film program from upper level students to recent graduates (2019+). Are most film studies majors, double majors? As a UC Berkeley film studies ONLY major - now that you have been in the program would you considering transferring to a more "established" film school such as USC, UCLA, NYU, Chapman, etc?
Has anyone applied / started their application for this year? I am trying to find the section of the application in the portal where I submit my recommenders but don't see anything. I feel like I might just be missing it... Does anyone know which section it's in? Thanks!
Does anyone know if it's alright to use a copyright music in the film portfolio? I searched everywhere on the website and couldn't find any specifics on it. I gave credits towards the artists at the end of my short film, but I'm still worried.
Hi! I have been accepted into the 2022 class, but I am unsure of attending. I wanted to defer to the winter session, but was denied. I'm currently writing, directing, and producing my first feature film and would have to put that on hold if I attended. (Which would be disappointing as I am already casting and on track to film this summer.) Looking back, would you attend the HRFS again? Do you feel like you are using the skills that you learned there? Are you currently making films?
Thank you very much for your help. There's very little information about alumni from HRFS, (now called SCFS).
I just finished my interview wit Raindance and was incredibly happy with it. Much much different to my interview with Metfilm and I'm leaning more towards Raindance now.
However I am curious about a few things:
1. What is the kind of infrastructure provided? If I want to edit and/or shoot a film is there good equipment for production and post-production?
2. What are the chances of landing a job in the industry post graduation? I would be an international student, so staying back would be imperative to gain experience in the industry and even though the festival and raindance community is excellent for networking, is it good enough to get a job after graduation?
I wanted to know what the average time taken is for lfs to process the application with an interview and acceptance? They say 8 weeks but I have also applied to other film schools like Metfilm and LFA and Leeds Beckett and if I get the admissions, I would not want to miss the acceptance deadline if I am waiting for an acceptance from LFS, since it's my top choice.
I am a film student at West Los Angeles College and I would like to reach out to other film school students with the hopes that I can connect with them and help them on their projects. I am currently in film school to become a Set Dresser and looking for jobs so that I can get class credit.
Prior to enrolling in film school, I was a Production Assistant and worked Art Department on a small sketch show for Fox Sports.
Is there a group message bnoard that I can enter my information on?
Hello, I am preparing my application for the production design program and I want to ask if anyone can share any examples for the portfolios they used for their application.
I am an architect, should I show my work with plans, elevations and sections or do I focus mainly on 3d models and visualizations
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?
