    Applied Chapman - TV Writing and Producing

    The Chapman application was pretty easy, it only required two brief writing samples as opposed to some schools that require full pilots. Because the writing samples were so small, I made sure that they were really polished.

    USC Film & TV Production or Chapman Film Production?
