I was expecting the good cop/bad cop routine as well based on this forum and what previous applicants have written. It wasn't like that at all though, which was a relief. They kind of all took turns asking me questions about my script... no one was especially quiet.Hey guys,
I applied for MA Screenwriting. I had my interview last Tuesday and came out of it feeling positive. I was set up by former students to expect a real good cop, bad cop routine, but while they did give me some feedback on my script, I think it was to see how I respond and internalise their notes as I've heard that they don't like people who mindlessly defend their stance/reasons for something in their script. But who knows? If I don't get in, at least I'll be proud of how I performed in the interview.
I must've restarted my task about four different times before going in to the interview! The adrenaline was coursing through me!
Good luck to everyone that's applied, I hope to be working with some of you if I get in and you guys get a place as well!
Hey Sally,Just on my last message yesterday, I guess no news is good news, right? They did tell me I'd hear either way, but no-one said it would be this long. I feel like I'm going crazy waiting! Anyone else out there who has any knowledge about that? Also, I work nearly full time so I need a bit of notice to get the time off if I do by some miracle get into the workshop! im worried about that too.
Thanks so much @FlightyZoo for replying, it's reassuring to know others are in the same boat but at the same time. I kind of wish we weren't if you know what I mean! Being so anxious and everything... anyway good luck to you too and I really hope you get a chance at this!Hey Sally,
Congratulations on getting to the interview stage. I also had my interview two weeks ago, but for screenwriting. @Memz, who also applied for screenwriting, bravely phoned Registry today where they told her that we'll be finding out about Screenwriting by Friday at the latest. We are also going bananas waiting, haha, but stick in there, and good luck!
I want the paaaaaaiiiiin to be over, but regardless of the outcome, it's because we tried and put our hearts into applying. That's something to be pretty proud of in my opinion.
Yes that's true & thanks for reminding me of that! I needed to hear it! Feeling much better after chatting to you. Thanks for taking the time.I want the paaaaaaiiiiin to be over, but regardless of the outcome, it's because we tried and put our hearts into applying.

Hi WillG,Hi there,
I've just received a conditional offer for the MA Screenwriting course at NFTS. I found this thread and it seems a great place to find other students going to NFTS.
Would love to talk to everyone else about the course, the application process, etc.
