    Attending (Admitted After Interview) AFI Production Design MFA - Fall 2024

    It has gone really fast so far. I got most of the stuff done within a week and got an interview for the following week after. The interview I think went well but I’m not so sure. We will see I guess. This was the only school I applied to for production design.

    Attending (Admitted w/o Interview) Chapman - Production Design MFA - Fall 2024

    Application process was straightforward, but stressful nonetheless. I was already planning on fixing up my portfolio, but as we all know it takes time and energy to get it to meet your own standards. I come from an architecture background with limited film experience, so if anyone in my boat...

    Chapman University Production Design MFA Fall 2024 - Anyone else applying?

    Hello! Was just curious if there’s anyone out there who’s also applying. I know it’s a small program, so it’d be nice to meet some other applicants and talk about any questions we might have :)

    The instructions for the application itself were quite clear, in terms of the questions and the portfolio requirements. The school is very helpful with any queries you might have about the application and the course.

    Attending (Admitted After Interview) UCLA MFA Scenic Design/Production Design

    The interview was at a very short notice but went on okay. Talked about two of my projects in the portfolio. Anyway I am glad to be admitted and had to make a very difficult choice. Hope it’s the right one!

    Admitted (After Interview) AFI Production Design MFA

    Simple application process, although nerve-wracking. Just put together my best collection of works, mostly architectural works as I am an architecture undergrad. Submitted all required materials by Dec 1, 2022. Definitely spent a lot of time on writing the narrative statement, talking about my...

    Admitted but Not Attending (After Interview) AFI Production Design 2023

    It was quite hard for me to prepare all the materials in time and I basically started my portfolio from scratch because I haven’t got any film-related or even design-related experience. I’m excited about studying film but also a little stressed. Not sure what will happen but we’ll see.

    Admitted (After Interview) AFI Production Design 2022 FALL

    The interview went very smoothly and straightforward. They first asked why I wanted to study production design and what's my understanding of it. After that, we also discussed a bit about my portfolio and some recent tv/film. The interview was pretty much like a chat and not as intense as I...

    Admitted (After Interview) UCLA MFA Design for Theater and Entertainment

    Very straightforward process. Their application is very easy to follow. I tried including a bit of everything and hope that'll be okay as they seem to have a strong focus on theater design compared to production design in general.
