    Below please find the portfolio requirements for the Fall 2022 application.

    A filmmaking background is not a prerequisite for admission to the Tisch School of the Arts. We are looking for potential creative filmmaking ability as evidenced through visual and written materials.

    There are two required components that you must submit in order to successfully complete your application for admission:

    1. The application for admission must be submitted online by December 1st to the Tisch Office of Graduate Admissions along with the required academic documentation, recommendations, and supporting credentials.
 Access the 2022 application link.

    2. You must prepare a five-part creative portfolio (detailed below) and submit it via SlideRoom (tischfilmandtv.slideroom.com). Please note that upon submitting your creative portfolio, SlideRoom will charge a $12.00 fee for applicants to use this service. You may pay this fee with a credit or debit card. Your creative portfolio must be uploaded via SlideRoom on or before December 1st.
    If you are applying for the dual-degree program (MBA/MFA) please click HERE.

    You can register and set up a department account at this link when the Grad Film SlideRoom portal re-opens in September. Setting up an account is free.

    Once you have registered to start a creative portfolio via SlideRoom, you may step away and come back at any time, until the final deadline. Please make sure that you save your progress after each visit, and do not click to submit until you are 100% sure that you have properly uploaded the required components outlined below. Once you click submit, you may no longer edit your creative portfolio.

    Please note that upon submitting your creative portfolio, SlideRoom will send you an e-mail to confirm receipt of your materials.


    THE CREATIVE PORTFOLIO​

    Please prepare the following items for your creative portfolio package:

    1. VISUAL SUBMISSION​

    Sample(s) of your work presented visually. Material done in collaboration with other artists is acceptable provided you were the major creative force (i.e., director, writer, camera operator or editor) and explain in detail the exact nature of your contribution.

    Choose ONE of the following formats (i.e., do not combine video and photography):

    Video: The submission should contain one complete narrative or documentary film with a total running time that does not exceed 15 minutes. Video footage of staged plays or theatre performances is not acceptable. Do not submit a clip reel. Please be clear about your specific contributions to the sample. You may upload up to ten minutes of video directly to the media page within SlideRoom. If the total running time of your video sample exceeds ten minutes, a YouTube or Vimeo link to your work must be provided on the media page. Please test your video prior to submission. If you are submitting a link, please be sure no downloads or passwords are required. We also ask that you do not deactivate viewer controls on this link. Reviewers will need to be able to fastforward, rewind, and see the video runtime. Foreign language films must have English subtitles.

    OR

    Photography (Stills): No more than 10 prints on any subject, black and white or color, with or without commentary may be submitted. The photographs may also be a presentation of work in other media, such as painting, illustration, sculpture, set design, costume design, etc. (Still images and scans uploaded to SlideRoom should be a minimum of 72 dpi.)

    Please use the following guidelines when labeling your media (i.e. film or photographs) in SlideRoom.

    2. WRITTEN SUBMISSIONS​

    You must submit ALL of the following:

    Dramatic Story:The Dramatic story is a required short narrative writing exercise. Write a two page story which builds dramatic tension and ends with one of these lines:

    "So I took the pair of sneakers, and never looked back."

    "I think Mom is psychic."

    "Any questions?"

    "And for the first time ever, I put on a mask."

    "Life isn't meant to be fair."

    "I still don't trust you, but OK."

    "Now I see it!"

    "We bumped elbows and split."


    Format for the Dramatic Story: 2 pages, double-spaced, 12 point font, prose style (not screenplay). (Save as a pdf and upload to SlideRoom.)

    Dialogue Scene: Write an interesting conversation between two people that reveals something about the characters. You can give a one sentence description of each character, but please include only essential details. Do not write back story. Do not include a cover page.

    Resume & Personal Statement: Upload copies of your resume and personal statement to SlideRoom. These are also required elements for the application submitted to the Tisch Office of Graduate Admissions. Personal statements should be between 2-4 pages in length, double-spaced, 12 point font.

    Please upload the requested items only. Failure to do so will be grounds for automatic disqualification. Please do not substitute, vary, or add extraneous or additional pieces. Portfolio materials cannot be edited once uploaded to SlideRoom.

    I was wondering if those prompts are for 2022's application? If I remember correctly those are also the prompts from last year? 🤔Or will NYU update the new prompts later?

    So they didn't change the prompts? Do schools usually do that? I remembered discussing those same prompts with a friend last year. I'm not sure about the releasing date of the prompts and thought that I'm gonna wait till September...
