Hi everyone!

I'm currently working on film school MFA applications, and I came across Chapman's MFA's in Film Production and Film/TV Producing. Does anyone know what the difference is between these two?

They have really good descriptions on the Dodge website for more details but the Production track is for directors, DPs, editors and sound designers. It’s based on a conservatory model like AFI has. Producing track is for producers.

Film/TV Producing students are producers. And Film Production students are everyone else (directing, cinematography, sound design, prod. design) with the exception of screenwriting students and TV writing students. So under Film Producing, you’ll pick a specialty.
 
Recent graduate here:

As a part of the producing program, you will take classes on story structure, line producing, entertainment law, and pitching.

TL;DR It's less technical and more business-centric

If you have any questions (or anyone reading this for that matter), feel free to DM me and I'd be happy to talk on the phone.
