Overall, this is my first choice out of all the schools I want to go to next year because they work you like you are going to work in the industry. You have the ability to work on other students' projects every weekend and gain that experience early on. As a freshmen you work in every single position in a project. You direct your own film and then work as an editor on your friend's and then again as a DP on someone else's project and so on. This school's approach to teaching is the very definition of hands-on and that experience is more valuable than what most other schools can offer with their many required classroom courses before you're allowed to even touch a camera.
Also, I'm very attracted to the opportunity to work as every single role on a project. If you don't necessarily know what area you want to focus on, you have the ability to test everything out and figure out what you are good at. Junior year is when the faculty helps you declare your "major."
University of North Carolina - School of the Arts
In your first two years at UNCSA, you will direct and shoot as many as six digital films as you take hands-on courses in every facet of modern film
