  • Great school for DP's.

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.
