    Interview Scheduled AFI Directing 2022

    It was a pretty strenuous application. Just because I wanted to make sure it was good. Worked on the personal statement for at least two months. Other than perfectionism, they really weren't asking all that much; a personal statement, a portfolio sample and accompanying essay, and an additional...

    Applied MFA Directing-2022

    The application process was smooth and good. Statement of purpose was the major thing which took my majority of time. This time in AFI there was instructions to make a film on the topic "Shift in Perspective", but this topic according to me is a subjective one, so it took me several days to...

    Interview Scheduled AFI Directing - 2022

    Jumped on writing the five minute short pretty quickly, and got everything submitted by early October. The most frustrating part was the narrative statement and having to revise it over and over again.

    Interview Scheduled AFI Directing 2022

    Honestly, the whole process has been pretty taxing for me. I applied to all the programs I had applied to and I wasn't quite happy with my portfolio. In the month of November, I made two shorts that I am pretty happy with in hopes that they would boost my chances of getting into programs. That...

    Applied LMU MFA in Film Production Application (2022)

    It was a lot of work because it made me truly think extensively about my reasons for pursuing filmmaking and evaluate my personal growth in the last couple of years that’s led me to this point. I haven’t heard anything back and have applied to several programs, but I feel very confident in the...

    2nd time applying. I already had everything copied from the previous application. I just had to tweak the personal essay.

    Applied Columbia University - Screenwriting/Directing Fall 2022

    I started the application in June of this year. I think it's better to have more time to send your creative materials to others for feedback. It also gives you time to digest what you have written. :):) I'm an international applicant and I did not submitted an english proficiency test. My 4...

    Applied Columbia University - Screenwriting/Directing Fall 2022

    The application process is wrapping up and very nerve racking. The waiting game will be the hardest part of the process. I wish I had statistics on how many students applied and how many students out of that number get interviewed.

    Applied AFI Conservatory Directing Fall 2022

    Application process went as smoothly as it could. Having applied once previously, I was familiar with the expectations and how long it would take me to accomplish the requirements. For the directing track, I submitted a short film that I recently made, as well as the Topic short film.

    Applied Columbia MFA in Screenwriting/Directing - Fall 2022

    I submitted this application a couple weeks ago. I thought the process went fine and was eager to get this final application done, only to discover after the fact that I formatted my writing samples wrong. (A lesson from this first time through applying to MFAs has been to thoroughly review the...
