Pros
  • Access to pretty state of the art equipment.
  • A few outstanding professors.
  • Lots of collaboration between sound, vis effects, motion graphics.
  • Everyone is so motivated to do well, it makes you want to do better.
  • Opportunities to work on films and tv sets while going to school.
  • Connections!! Your professors are your life line so make good impressions.
  • Great school for DP's.
  • Casting department will help you cast your student films.
  • New film building has plenty of computers with AVID and protools, plus plenty of studios to film in.
Cons
  • People have their groups... it's cliquey.
  • Film students here are notorious for being pretentious and obnoxious.
  • Savannah can be unsafe, so it's important to be mindful when choosing an apartment off campus.
  • You get what you put in. The career dept. will help you only if you seek their help.
  • There aren't enough classes for producers.
  • You're screwed if the other students don't like you.
  • The cage is disorganized. You have to triple check your equipment when you rent.
  • SCAD owns everything you make using their equipment and automatically owns your senior film.
  • Tuition is on the expensive side.
I really enjoyed my time here and appreciate the foundations classes we were required to take because they trained us to become artists, technically and conceptually. It definitely played a role in our filmmaking, regardless of how much I hated Drawing 1 & 2.
