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!
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...
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!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!
