Hey guys!

I'm stating my college application for UCLA MFA in Production/Directing. They are asking me to write a 2 page treatment for a short film. Can you give me any tips to write it? What kind of stories are they looking for? What do they expect from it? More describing, more interesting ending? anything could help...

thank you!

Hey those of you who got the notification: are the interviews in-person or online? Or do you choose? 🤔

You can choose it. They said there is no advantage to an in-person interview. But I choose to do an in-person interview.:)
Oh okay. Are they making a day of it like some of the other schools? Tour, class sit-ins, or is it just the interview?

Thank you for responding! :)

Hi guys! Soo it looks like that from the excel files from previous years, the interview requests for film production were sent out around mid February and all at once (I saw on the document from 2018 that all the interview requests were sent out on the 14th of Feb specifically). So unless something has changed, we should be hearing something back soon! Especially considering the fact that the documentary track has already been notified!

Yeah but last year they didn't get notified until the first week of March, like the 3rd or 4th. So maybe we'll hear back sometime between now and then? 🤔

Woah that late?! If the interview requests will go out in March then I wonder when we will hear about the final decision 😥
