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!
frustrating! I got waitlisted at USC and hated that feeling of uncertainty :(
 
I got my acceptance to AFI today! I got the email this morning and a call from the Dean! I am so shocked. I applied just for shits and grins cause I know how hard it is to get in... and I can't believe I got in!

Congrats to everyone accepted! I got in as a producer a few weeks ago. Anyone want to make a facebook group?

Goto afi.com click on apply now...then there is a link within the body of the text that will take you to an application login. I don't remember where I got my login information but if you use your first initial and whole last name for your username and your password is your "student id_AFI"....it should let you in. Once you are in click on admission status...and it will tell you. But it looks like you are on your way to USC, that is a great school! congratulations!
 
Made it on to the wait list for the Directing program, but unfortunately, I won't know whether or not I'll make it into the program until after I have to give a final decision to the other schools I applied to. So it looks like I'll be deciding between NYU and Columbia now! Congrats to everyone that got accepted!

Okay, so here's a question: Cars!

I'll be attending as a Cinematography fellow, and I'll be needing a car.

I was wondering what kind of car people recommend? As a cinematographer, will I be hauling gear to shoots and need the storage capacity of an SUV...or will a Sedan do just fine?

If anyone has any insight into this...I'd really love to know.

I've seen a good amount of gear packed into a sedan for smaller scale stuff. However, for productions on the scale we'll be doing for our cycle projects (3/4 days) we've always rented a van/small cube truck.

Id worry about a car for actually getting around LA.

When I was there for my interview, the majority of cars tended to be small crossovers/suv's, and more than a few of them were loaded up with gear.

My assumption is that directors, writers, producers, etc can get by with a compact or a sedan...but for the cinematographers, something with good storage capabilities might be really useful.

Anyone in the program feel like chiming in? (not that any of you frequent the forum...)

Helen Forsdale: I am a directing fellow, but most cinematographers I now have normal-sized cars with a well-sized trunk or small SUVs, because parking at AFI is a nightmare and it gets though if you have a big car. For productions, we always rent trucks for all the equipment, so you don't have to worry about that. If you want to keep gels, smaller equipment stuff and smoke machines and the likes in your car and use them for exercises or shooting, a smaller SUV might work better for you. But you definitely don't need more.
