LMU "Writing for the Screen" MFA Fall 2020



I'm applying for Loyola Marymount University's film writing MFA program for Fall 2020.

Which prompt are you doing?

At the beginning or end of the scene, a hand holds a knife.
A character has to say goodbye to a friend without actually saying they are leaving and won't be back.
A lovers' quarrel where something gets broken.
An animal plays a key role.
The first line of dialogue is: "That's the guy, right there."

And which sample are you including?

One feature-length screenplay or teleplay (half-hour or one-hour; spec or pilot).
The second sample may be a feature-length screenplay or teleplay (half-hour or one-hour; spec or pilot), although we recommend you submit a short story or a one-act play.

The video prompt is kind of stressing me out. I kind of want to look through the forums for tips. But I think I'm just gonna do it and not risk overthinking it.

Anyone else applying?
