I didn't find a forum for AFI MFAs for this year, so I decided to create one.

Hopefully we can get to know each other a bit, and also, answer questions :)

yeah I agree, Sheryl answered my own question in the other forum about term dates:
fall term starts on August 22 and ends December 16. Spring term starts January 3 and ends June 9, 2017.

Hey all, I'm starting as a screenwriting fellow this fall. Do we know anything about orientation yet? I just spoke with an instructor over the phone and it slipped my mind to ask him.
 
Hey guys! Just found this forum. I'm starting as a directing fellow this fall. Thanks for the term dates above! I was dying to know the schedule but couldn't find it anywhere!

I haven't been told anything regarding this so far. In fact, I though we would have received more info (housing advice, orientation, etc) by now.

Anyone know anything?

I've been super sick so it's been a very unproductive week, but I'm thinking of emailing Sheryl tomorrow.

I just received an official letter and a little brochure about the course. I'm in Australia, so i would have thought Americans would already have them?

@Al1 I'm in South America, so technically closer than you, and yet, I'm still waiting :confused:

Hi Niki,

First, thank you so much for answering questions. When accepted I didn't seem to have any but as the start of term gets closer and closer I can't seem to go a day without something new popping into my head.

Just a few questions:
- What's boot camp like for us screenwriters? Ya'know, aside from the whole trying not to be the last kid picked for gym class dodgeball feeling.
- How much time do you normally spend on set?
- I heard that most of our time will be spent in workshops perfecting a feature, is this true?
- If so, is this feature started from scratch for the workshop or are we able to use previous work/ideas?

Those are just a few and I might have a few more if you're willing. But, again, thank you so much for answering a few questions.
