1. Your best teacher is always going to be how to learn from your mistakes. I've made many on set and in class and they've made me a better producer because of it. You will take classes in all aspects of producing and you will get on set experience in a plethora of roles.Hi, I'm applying to Columbia Creative Producing this year. It's so kind of you to take questions here! I have two questions:
Will the curriculum guide us through every step of producing a film? Is the emphasis only on script-development or will we have more opportunities to learn on set?
Are people at Columbia doing mainly fiction films or there are people doing documentaries? As I'm aware that one professor at Columbia produced quite a lot good documentaries.
Your peers are important, but they are not your competition. They are there to make you better and you them. Their accomplishments IMO do not matter because we are all sitting in the same class learning the same information.How accomplished are your peers? Do you feel they are seasoned?
