NYU Feature Film Concept? Can I Do a Treatment? How is A Concept Different Than a Treatment?


Hi everyone!

I searched a bit and couldn't find the answer to my question, so I thought I'd ask here.

For the NYU Film MFA's feature film concept, can I submit a treatment? My film idea was originally a two-paged, single-spaced concept for USC. Then I shortened it to a one-page, double-spaced treatment for Columbia. For the NYU concept (one-page, double-spaced,) what would I be expected to do that's different from a treatment if it has to be different? It's just so short haha.

Thanks so much!


I found an old post from 2011 where someone emailed admissions and asked them about what concept means, they said they want more of a "pitch" rather than "treatment".
