Hi! I applied for the MA in Screenwriting and am still waiting to hear back as well. Apparently they'll release all interview notifications by July 2nd so there is still a bit of a wait I'm afraid--hope that helps and good luck!
I'm applying for Directing Fiction and Screenwriting and haven't heard anything of both yet. A colleage of mine (we're both from Spain) got invited to an interview last wednesday; he's applying for Production.
I expect they're leaving the ones that didn't get the interview to send the sad email at a later date, as I think they might wanna hurry in getting to know which ones are entering the school first.
But all is speculation. Maybe someone can give us some insight .
The only good thing about this is, that the Producing Sift panel outcomes were supposed to be announced by June 11 ... so as long as we haven't heard of anyone invited for a directing interview there is still some hope (perhaps - haha) =)
If anyone of you guys should get an interview invitation between July 10 and 14 we should meet up and have a few pints after the interview. Mine is on July 12 for screenwriting. No matter the outcome we got reason to go out haha
@Ed: you can find some of my "stuff" on http://evamerz.com/film. Moonlit Night is the one I sent to the NFTS. There's only the trailer on the website, but I can send you a link to the film if you're interested. You want to share your stuff, too?
thanks for sharing ... I like the trailer and would definitely like to see the short =)
I've got some of my stuff here ... https://vimeo.com/user1096232
Narratomat was the one I sent to NFTS, the trailer on vimeo was (as is quite obvious) just a very hastily put together thing.
The rest on vimeo is pretty bad old stuff as well - haha.
I've also applied for Directing Fiction and haven't heard anything. The confirmation e-mail I received from the school said that we wouldn't hear anything before 2nd July, so I presumed that successful candiidates would be contacted this week...
I got rejected today as well. I'm 24 and submitted my second short film ever (I've been working in theatre these last 3 years), so I think not getting selected in your first application is relatively normal.
By the way, it seems they only got eight places for january 2013. Seems odd, because I've heard in previous years they had like 16 students for Directing Fiction.
Sorry to hear that Moira; and EdWoody, maybe you're lucky enough to get an interview! Good luck to all the applicants!
