UTA requires you to study in TWO disciplines, and most study creative fiction writing and screenwriting. the CW pgms I applied to (Vanderbilt, Iowa, Wash U St Louis, Brown) require the GRE and/or the subject exam, so UT is probably following suit. generally speaking, most CW MFA applicants plan on teaching, since very few can make a living immediately as a writer, and grad students who teach writing have to pass fairly rigorous academic standards. it's assumed you're en route to teaching until your best seller hits. which usually happens about the time you're 70 years old.Hi all,
I applied at UT Austin for MFA in Film and media production. Is there anyone who applied to UT?
Writing for TV...I actually just got asked to submit a spec script, so glad about that...but, nothing from LMU, yet. you?
spec script was for a tv show, not related to LMU, but I mentioned that in my app, so hope that helps. I saw the production post, that's awesome. I think the WPTV program is really gaining steam...I have a feeling this yr will be their best, yet.Wait a spec scrip for LMU? or just in general? (i'm also applying for writing and producing for tv? i haven't heard yet but someone on the forum found out about getting in for production? they called her but i didn't know they did that. i know someone else who is a first year there that got in around this time maybe a week or so later [manguforcheap who just posted ])
Star TrekI hope so. I applied to there, Chapman and CMU (Entertainment Management; they have great placement and put a lot of students right out of graduation into the industry in a lot of areas) and I feel good about what I sent in to LMU.
But that's super awesome about the spec script! I want to know what show so bad! Haha!
