Hi there! I didn't see a thread for this yet so I thought I'd start one. I applied last year for Screenwriting/Directing, was waitlisted and never got off the waitlist, so I'm on my second round of applications. Was wondering if anyone had any thoughts about the optional video exercise for someone who has far more screenwriting experience than directing. I submitted a video last year and I'm not sure if I want to include it again or re-shoot something.

As someone currently attending Columbia, they’re a storytelling school through and through. Just because you don’t have as much experience with directing, they definitely want to know what the story is about. You’ll do great!
