I recently got admitted to NYU Tisch (design for stage and film - MFA) and CalArts (scenic design - MFA). I have been working as an asst. Production designer in commercial indian cinema since the past 1 year. And I aim to pursue that. I have a good scholarship package from both schools so the cost is coming down to be the same. CalArts's course structure is more open ended while NYU is more specialised. L.A is where the film industry is and that is a plus point while New York has a strong indie scene going but I want to be on commercial film projects. CalArts provides internships which are cedited, while NYU does not have an option for an internship, instead we collaborate with Tisch graduate film students making various films and we also collaborate with Columbia film students to make a film....but I don't know how will that help me make the contacts I need to make to get into the big budget projects in Hollywood . What would you suggest ? I am freaking out !!
