Got everything done. I’m spending the rest of the month reviewing and getting feedback from a few friends. I’m nervous but excited with what I‘ve come up with! I’m submitting video work as a part of my portfolio.
Good luck! Be sure to add your application to our database once you submit it. :)

Yes, good luck everybody! I'm reapplying too :) I emailed about the same prompts but didn't receive a reply -- I'll take it they haven't changed and continue writing my portfolio? Also, is the film concept supposed to be fully developed or a basic sense of themes, characters and rough plot will do?
 
I'm reapplying this year as well! Does anyone know if we need to update our recommendation letters and personal statements? I would obviously like to upload new material for the creative portfolio, but I'm not sure who to get a recommendation from this year.

I would definitely write a new personal statement. From talking to other admissions departments that's one of the most important things for admission so if you were denied last year the personal statement may have been one reason why.

How are you feeling about your stuff 2 months later? Hopefully you're even more happier with it.

Did you submit yet? Or are you waiting?
I definitely feel silly having felt so confidently about the early drafts of my writing work. Much more happy with the elements- tho the 1 page treatment is a hard one! I have not submitted yet, feel very protective and will probably hold out for a few more weeks.

Funny how that works huh?

Yes! Condensing and editing down to the most important elements is an important skill to hone and work on. I still am.

I am attending the virtual session. Also how is everyone doing on the process of their applications. I definitely am nervous about putting my work in the application portal I feel like once I do there is no turning back! Also for the picture they ask to submit of yourself what is everyone doing for it? A more professional head shot style photo or a more personal one?

im doing a more personal photo rather than ‘prof’. Somewhere between selfie and staged, I believe they call that candid lol. the nerves are definitely there for me too, once we submit we’ve lost all the control.
