    Applied UCLA Directing/Film Production MFA

    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...

    Average age of students for undergraduate?

    Hey guys! My name is Leonardo, I’m from Mexico. I’m 21 years old. Since I was a kid I wanted to be a filmmaker and I’m interested in going to film school. Right now, I’m doing the one year screenwriting program in Vancouver Film School but I’m also interested in doing an undergraduate degree...

    First time writing a short film treatment, but I think it went well!! Thought it was odd that the application required a personal statement AND a statement of intent.

    Interviewed 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.

    Applied FALL 2022 - UCLA Screenwriting MFA

    Pretty well - but by far, UCLA's information was the most infuriating. When they put up the new 2021 portal, they hadn't changed the submission information so I was working on different application materials until I realised they'd changed it. Not to mention, their Personal Statement and...

    Applied UCLA Producers Program - FA'22

    This application process goes smooth if you begin mid-September--as soon as the UCLA application uploads. Started with the statement of purpose (500 words) and two feature film treatments (took a script and transformed it into treatment and did one from scratch.) The producer program...

    UCLA Producers Program 2022

    Hey there, I submitted my application to the UCLA Producers Program last night and was going over the application proof to make sure everything was submitted properly. I noticed that I could see each document that I posted except for the Producers Questionnaire. Has this happened for anyone else?

    Applied UCLA MFA in Production/Directing - Fall 2022

    I've put off applying to graduate programs for the past few years, so I'm excited to finally be doing it, but I'm also very nervous. UCLA's information was a little hard to find and the instructions were a bit confusing (like stating a page length requirement in one place and word count in another.)

    Applied UCLA MFA in Production/Direction - Narrative for Fall 2022

    I was very nervous about doing something wrong!o_O But I managed to apply!! ;) I found it very difficult to get in touch with the admissions office, and they took a long time to answer my questions. Being an international student applying (perhaps just for Portuguese students?!) the hardest part...

    Applied UCLA MFA in Production/Direction - Narrative for Fall 2022

    The initial application process was rough for me personally due to a sudden loss in my family, but putting together the creative materials was actually a nice distraction in the midst of everything. Crossing my fingers they like what I submitted!

    UCLA Bruin Article "Lights, Camera, Inaction" was removed by someone - Here's the full text

    The original UCLA bruin article Lights, Camera, Inaction appears to have been removed somehow. Thankfully, nothing is ever truly gone on the internet though if you use the way back machine: https://web.archive.org/web/20210624073909/https://features.dailybruin.com/2021/tft/ Copy Pasta...

    UCLA TFT MFA - Anyone know what has changed for Fall 2022?

    Hi all! Many of you must remember how UCLA did not accept applications for any of their film MFA programs last year, in theory so they could re-vamp their program, which had come under fire recently (but also not-so-recently, in their two previous quality reviews). It looks like UCLA TFT MFAs...

    Is it OK to apply to Multiple Programs at UCLA?

    I just spoke to someone in the admin office at the UCLA grad program. He was discouraging me from applying to two programs at UCLA. And that they'd force me to choose one application and that it would borderline look bad. Anybody have any thoughts on this? Or experience with it? Part of me is...
