      Hiya!
      Thanks for making this thread, I'd love to connect with other applicants like in previous years.

      A little about me:
      This is my first time applying and I also applied for the MFA Dramatic Writing.
      I'm an international applicant based in Wales, UK
      I've got a decent amount of film experience, having worked in production and now as a script supervisor for the last couple of years.

      What was your favourite bit of the application process??
       
      Hi arthrax, nice to meet you!

      A bit about me as well: I'm an international applicant from Barcelona (Spain) and I currently live in Washington DC. I'm a lawyer by degree but I've been involved in filmmaking for a few years now. I've written and directed a few short films and recently produced and directed a webseries in the US. However I feel I don't have a lot of filmmaking experience (I mainly have writing experience as I've written for my whole live), so I'm aware that might be a drawback.

      My favorite part of the application process was writing the short story in prose format and the two-characters dialogue. I struggled a lot with the page limitation and trying to fit everything into 2 pages hahah and re-wrote the stories a few times, but I had fun doing that! What about you??
       
      Hi, I'm from Bilbao (Spain) and first time applying, with the support of the Spanish Fellowship of La Caixa. I've worked professionally in theater for several years but I've been making my own short films for years. Filmmaking has always been my passion and I hope to make it a career with NYU or another of the great US film programs. Nice to meet you all.
       
      Hey everyone, lovely to meet you all! A quick question: have any of you not had both of your letters of recommendation uploaded/had any issues with it? One of my references has been able to upload the letter to the portal but the other one keeps saying they haven't received any email. I've re-sent it and also re-added them as a recommender and they're still telling me they haven't received anything. I'm worried that somehow the email isn't coming through to their email address as it's a university one in the UK. Has anyone else had this issue or haven't had both of their letters uplaoded?

      Hey! I'm having a similar problem with one of my recommenders. They still haven't uploaded their recommendation letter, trying to (hopefully) get this sorted out today.
       
      Hiya! Has your recommender said they've had issues? I think with mine I had typed their email in without the capital letters as I didn't think it mattered but I think it did in the end. I re-added them and added capitals on and it's just come through to them today and they've uploaded my letters. Have you contacted NYU at all? They were really helpful with me but did recommend that I contact someone else as a recommender
       
      Hi everyone my name is AJ I’m from South Carolina. This is my first time applying to NYU for their Grad Film program for fall 23. I consider myself a fairly new filmmaker. I have more a background in screenwriting but my goal is to write and direct my own films. I also applied to Chapman University and AFI for their Fall 23 film production programs with an emphasis in directing. Super excited and hopefully we will see each other in the fall.

      Hey! Thankfully this was all sorted a couple of days ago and my recommender finally submitted the letter. I did contact NYU and they were pretty chill about it. All good now ☺️
       
      Just checked my YouTube analytics. Got two views from SlideRoom on Dec 22. The average watch time is only 6 minutes, but my film is 14 minutes. I guess that's it for me then. :oops:

      Wouldn't jump to conclusions like that yet. But disheartening to see i can understand.
       
      Hey happy new year!

      Is there any update on your viewed analytics? I got 2 finished views on Dec 23, and another view on Jan 17, but only 7 minutes this time, my film is 15 minutes. Can this viewing analytics tell us anything according to past examples?

      I don't think so. Just be patient! You will know the result after February.

      Analytics are notoriously inaccurate. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
