Hi,

I'm joining the thread pretty late in the game but am hoping to connect with some future AFI students. I was accepted into the producing program last week and sent in my deposit today. Any other producing applicants out there? I'd love to get to know anyone else who is attending AFI in the fall.

Good luck everyone!

Cmoe thanks for posting, I am wondering what other schools you applied to and why you chose AFI.

Went for my interview a couple of weeks back for directing and as far as I know, they are interviewing until the 22/23? Then will make their decisions. I am not sure about those dates but I remember the dates I had to choose from were late...they did say that they would let people know on the 1st. This is driving me nuts!

Just got the call to interview for directing. Phew! They're running up to the wire on this one, as they're supposed to release decisions on April 1. Anyway, the thing's tomorrow, so I thought I'd cast about one last time for any advice on how it might go. I'll be interviewing with Peter Markham, head of the directing discipline, as well as a recent alum.

Any words of wisdom from those who have already interviewed? My Columbia interview was quite pleasant, but this may be a different animal altogether...

Hey Ned! Goodluck with the interview! I also interviewed for directing.

Mine was pretty chill - just asked things like my fav director, things i've read recently, how i plan to pay for school, what was the message i was conveying in my short documentary i submitted. There were two interviewers - one seemed to ask a little more challenging questions - maybe a little bit of a case of good cop bad cop. Goodluck again!

Have you heard anything from them? They have the 1st as their date to contact us but sometimes people hear earlier than that...Good Luck! I interviewed for directing as well...hopefully we all get in and are all directing fellows next year!

Yes, let's! I have heard from most of the programs I applied to and after visiting AFI I felt that it was the best fit. This waiting is the worst, I have had to refrain from calling Jordan and asking him...so.many.times.

My interview seemed to go pretty well. I may have stumbled a bit in one or two of my answers, but they were pretty good questions. I can say, at least, that I always found my way in the end to what seemed to me like a pretty good answer, and there was much nodding and such from the folks on the other end of the Skype video call. So we'll see. Best of luck to everyone for this coming Tuesday's decisions!

Got the email that I'm an Alternate first thing this morning. The letter says spots can open up as late as August. Because of course after all this what I want is more uncertainty

Anyone past Fellows know what the odds are? Good luck to the rest of you!
