Hi all! I was recently emailed about being selected for a skype interview for UCLA. I'm freaking out about what to wear, though. I've read that skype interviews are pretty laid back, but I haven't heard how people have dressed for theirs. Casual or business casual?
Also, what type of questions...
Hi, so I got an email the other day from UCLA saying I have an interview which is super exciting!! I’ve been trying to figure out how many people get this chance? Is it like top 50? I’ve been trying to search all over but I couldn’t say for sure.
...really??? Nobody cares about CalArts? Such an amazing school where you can do film and animation at the same time? lol I got an interview invitation a couple days ago, and they asked me to go there do it in person while walking around the campus from 9AM to 9PM.
No kidding! It's like ⚡Bay...

Does anyone know what the interview notification dates are for each school?

So here we are...
I applied to creative producing and had an interview on 2/25.
How is everybody doing?
I applied for Film Directing at CalArts and received email for interview. It says an on-campus interview is strongly encouraged, but Skype is also doable.
Now, I'm in a different country and the flight is too pricey so I'll have to go with Skype. But I'm curious if anybody's interviewed...

Did you send out a hand written thank you note after your interview? Is this important? Is an email better?
The interview was 3 weeks ago. I know they just did the 2nd round of interviewing and will be deciding in the next 2 weeks.
Hi! Everyone. I'm an international student who is applying for producing program this year. Recently, I received a UCLA producers program interview invitation. And I have a few question to ask. I sincerely hope someone who has experienced that can give me some tips and advice. Also, I'd like to...

Hey guys! I was recently accepted to the MFA in Production program at Florida State. For me, preparing for the interview was a nerve-wracking process. However, I knew quite a few people in the BFA program and was able to help prepare myself for a few of the questions they asked me.
I'm here to...
Wanted to share my singular Directing MFA video portfolio item. I submitted only this film (or portions of the film) as my portfolios.

A thread for applicants to the 2015 UCLA graduate program in directing. What's your background? What kind of stories do you intend to tell? What do you think of the way the program is organized? Has your interview request come in yet?
Wanted to start a thread for all the twitchy, anxious film nerds like myself who are still waiting on notices from the graduate programs. I applied exclusively for a directing and producition MFA at UT Austin, UCLA, NYU, FSU, and LMU.
So far I have been accepted by UT Austin, and have...
Hey everyone! I had a question about reapplying to the aforementioned MFA Directing programs and what should change in your application. I made it to the interview round for UCLA last year but wasn't selected (after some bad luck regarding not being informed about pitching a film and just...
