    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 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.

    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...

    Interviewed Stony Brook MFA in Film Directing - Fall 2022

    I am just now adding this to the database, a few weeks after I submitted my application. I enjoyed doing the writing prompts and am excited to see what happens. This is definitely one of the more affordable film MFA options, which is appealing. Making the introduction video was definitely the...

    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...

    Applied NYU Graduate Film MFA - Fall 2022

    It's been pretty good! I've enjoyed working on the creative prompts, though it is daunting. I am excited to be applying and just taking the plunge. I have been out of undergrad for a few years now and don't feel like I have a ton to show for it, but I'm trying not to think about that too much...

    Applied FSU MFA Production - 2022

    Just submitted my application. The instruction is a bit unclear for me and admin team is not as responsive as the other schools. very stressful but glad it was done!

    Applied Chapman MFA Production Design

    Very straightforward process. Their application is very easy to follow. I'm just a bit anxious about the portfolio because I'm not sure what they were looking for exactly. I tried including a bit of everything!

    Applied NYU Tisch Graduate Film MFA - 2022

    This was my third application completed so far and it was by far my favorite. NYU's directions were simple and straightforward, and I had fun writing the requested pieces. I adore NYU's program (and location, since I already live in and love NYC), so I'm really crossing my fingers for this one!

    Interviewed USC Fall 2022 MFA in Film and Television Production

    It's been alright! I struggled with what to submit for the media sample since it had to be five minutes or less. I kind of wish I had just made a short film specifically for submission because I'm not sure if what I submitted had enough of a story to it or was compelling enough. It was more of...

    Interviewed USC MFA in Film & Television Production - Fall 2022

    This application was pretty tough for me, just because it required so much info and writing, which made completing it time-intensive. I'm currently staying with my parents to help out after an unexpected family death, on top of working full-time, so I wasn't able to dedicate as much time to the...

    USC Film/TV Production MFA Media Sample - Existing project or brand new one?

    I can’t exactly tell what’s expected for the Media Sample for the USC MFA Film and TV application - do we have to make a brand new original video for the purpose of applying to USC, or can we use a video we’ve already made in the past? I would prefer to submit a project I worked on two years...

    Applied LMU SFTV MFA

    This application took me most of the month as well. I enjoyed the treatment and unforgettable moment submission. I liked that we were able to add a visual sample as applicants for the directing program. They also allow you to apply for a scholarship within the application which I appreciated...

    Applied UCLA Film Production MFA-Fall 2022

    It took me most of the month to work through the application and it still took me some time today to fine-tune it. I feel indifferent toward their selection process for directing applicants because they don't want a video submission in your supplemental materials so that makes me curious if a...
