Hi Andy!Hey all!
Decided to start a thread for LMU for next fall. Feel free to post anything regarding the application if you’ve applied or are in the process of applying. Best regards!
Happy to see someone opening a thread about LMU for 2020! I am almost done with all the required materials however, while I was re-reading the requirements, I felt a little confused about the Personal Statement. The website states: Your personal statement should be a story about you. How have your life experiences, choices, and values shaped you as a storyteller? What has influenced your unique voice? Tell us about three films, TV shows, or plays that have had an impact on you and why. Describe the last three books you read. Why do you want to attend the MFA in Film and Television Production program at Loyola Marymount University?"By reading it, it seems like we have to write about all these things, three books, films, and all those other things within 1000 words. Is this just a general guideline as what we could write about or are we supposed to actually touch each point?
Thanks for the advice! I rewatched everything and yeah I'm gonna submit the excerpt. The story and production value are just better.Howdy!
So yeah, I was in similar position. My best work is definitely longer than 5 minutes, so I had to compromise a bit and show one that wasn’t my favorite but at least had some production value and looked pretty good. I think that’d be fine if you show the first ten minutes. They might watch the whole thing anyway, I would imagine. If any of your shorter ones aren’t your best but can at least tell a coherent story regardless of production value I’d say submit that but if you feel your work is significantly better in the longer one then I would probably choose that instead. they are cool with you at least showing the best 10 continuous minutes of a short. Hope this helps!
Shoot. I may be wrong. Maybe that was old info from last year. Thank you for letting me know! I'll update it.Slightly confused! Is the deadline actually the 10th? LMU website says “Applicants must submit the following materials to the Graduate Division by Wednesday, December 4, 2019.”
Thank you! It's been updated. I have no idea why it was wrong in the document. Thanks for letting me know.Slightly confused! Is the deadline actually the 10th? LMU website says “Applicants must submit the following materials to the Graduate Division by Wednesday, December 4, 2019.”
I really hope no one missed the deadline because of this typo on the site. Please double check all the deadlines listed there and obviously go by what the school says and not here for the final word on deadlines.Slightly confused! Is the deadline actually the 10th? LMU website says “Applicants must submit the following materials to the Graduate Division by Wednesday, December 4, 2019.”
How are you preparing? I looked up the two professors interviewing me and they're already intimidating me.Hey everyone, just got an email today inviting me to an interview with LMU! Has anyone else heard anything? Does anyone have insight on what to expect from this interview?
