Hi there!

I'm wondering, for all of you who upload your porfolio short film on Vimeo, how many views are from Slideroom?

Just had my interview. It was anywhere between “okay” and “good” I thought? My student ambassador was super helpful and said it went long so that’s a good sign and if I felt at least okay about it (she felt bad about hers) I should be fine.

Quick Q&A with the ambassador at the beginning followed by a tour after. The interview itself a fairly standard interview, more formal than my AFI Screenwriting one. Standard questions (why grad school, why NYU, etc). With 3 people, a directing professor and an editing professor. They all read different parts of my portfolio and no one saw my complete portfolio so a bit of explaining to each person. One thing that was supposed to catch people off guard that I nailed was to pitch a short film (they asked it in an indirect way) and Alex Rockwell said the pitch was really good. One thing I screwed up on was just being a bad listener and saying I was excited about the opposite thing they’d just told me about NYU so I’d do your research if I were you lol

Who knows???

Hey, if anyone else has their interview experiences to share, I’d really appreciate it (if you want to DM me too, feel free!). The more I think about it, the more it feels like I didn’t do so well on the interview since it ended kind of abruptly and some of my interviewers were very stoic at times and hard to read. Also, my answers to some of the questions seemed vague in retrospect and I forgot a lot of my questions. And I saw in a previous thread they choose a lot of candidates to interview (10% of 1,000-ish I saw?). The panel did mention that they’d review your whole portfolio again in addition to the interview so hoping that helps.

Hi there. First off, 10% of 1000ish is not really a lot of candidates. Also, I know that they interview few people, more like double the number they take. I personally don't think its much use or helpful to worry about it. My thinking is, I did what I could then, what is done is done. Plus, its kind of like dating... sometimes you think the date went well, and they never call you again. Other times, you realise you were worried for nothing. Don't know if this helps. Patience is a virtue.

Thanks. Yeah, I think after months of being like "whatever", the fact that it's really coming down to the wire now is causing some late game anxiety to flare up. That's probably all it is but ugh do I wish I could redo my interview lol

Hi, I had my interview 27th Feb. I feel you. All these day I was thinking about every single detail of the interview once and once again and it’s killing me. Really wish we can hear about the result soon. Maybe mid March?
