Hi! This is my AMA!
Sorry for taking so long to answer. I was moving to New York and settling in school.Hey!
Thanks for doing this. I am preparing my application for next years intake. I wanted to ask how you approached and structured your personal statement? We only get 750 words, which is a lot less compared to the other programs. I have a hard time figuring out how to cram in all the answers to their questions in that small space..
Also, what was your impression with regards to what they value most in future candidates? Background, experience, the writing samples or something else?
I'm thinking of putting together an article on the site on something like "Film School in the time of COVID" to help current applicants and people who may be attending schools in the fall. I'd love to be able to interview you (or one of the site's writers will) about how the pandemic is currently affecting you at the school and what the school's plans are for the fall if any. Would this be something that you're interested in?Hi! This is my AMA!
