I forgot the name of the school. Help me, please!

Dear all,

I am planning to apply for film schools with deadlines of December 1. I've been looking at different schools and taking notes. There is a school whose name I've already forgotten (I know it's too bad). However, I remember details of the school's application requirements and I'll list them below. It would be greatly appreciated if you could remind me of the school's name.

- Make a 1-2 minute video to introduce yourself. You can pretty do anything but you have to follow one rule: You can't appear in the video.
- Write a proposed topic / treatment for a film that you can film in 8 days. In your 4th year, the school will give you $20,000 to make the film.
- Write a story from the prompt of your choice:

1. There is a married couple whose marry is on the verge of falling apart. For some reason, they are stuck in a snowbank without having a working phone. Write a story that includes the best and the worst of their relationship.
2. There are two brothers that haven't seen each other in 10 years and now they are waiting for their parent's funeral to start. Write a story about how their relationship dramatically changes before the start of the funeral.

I thought it was Chapman's requirements but I went to the school's website and found out it wasn't. Thank you all so much for your help.
