University of North Carolina Wilmington- A Writing School disguised as a Film Production one
Pros- Location is close to film industry
- Practical Classes are useful to indie filmmakers.
- One will learn how to write good essays about film.
Cons- Writing is pretty much ALL you DO! The amount of filmmaking classes that are required is fairly minimal compared to the amount of lecture classes that will inevitably demand a seven plus page essay per class.
- The Film Curation is weak. It's either a heavy-handed drama, or a disturbing art film. "Vertigo/ The Godfather/ Seven Samurai/ Lawrence of Arabia/The Maltese Falcon" was not on any of the screening blocks of the classes I took.
Seventy five papers+less than five film projects+ frustrating curation+ job market that doesn't care that I wrote 75 essays= One Angry Man
