I totally hear you about stressing out over the creative assignments. I actually really like what I've got for my most emotional moment piece, and I want to be able to submit pieces I'm just as confident in for all the other assignments. I'll write something I think is pretty good, edit it for a week, then decide it's crap, trash it, and start over. I'm getting a little anxious now, that I won't be able to think of the right thing before the deadline arrives.Originally posted by pleiades:
I'm applying to USC for a Masters in Writing for Screen & Television.
These assignments are making me lose sleep at night! "Emotional moment" is just F'ing killing me.
Is anyone else worried that they're just not interesting enough to be accepted? How eccentric do you have to be? Are there a lot of people in film school like Prince? He rocks and everything, but if that's who goes to film school, I'm cosmically screwed.
Looking for solidarity and neurosis out there.
Ha. That's what I'm afraid will happen to me. Except I'm doing the online application, so there's no possibility of charming the postal worker for me D:Originally posted by Jayimess:
Don't try to be out there, guys...just be you.
Personally, I threw out everything I'd been working on for nine months and wrote new stuff about 48 hours before the postmark deadline, and convinced a postal worker to give me the right postmark even though I didn't send it til 2am, technically a day late.
I got in off waitlist...I always wonder if I would've gotten in straight up or rejected if I'd sent the other stuff...but I'll never know.
Best of luck, guys. It's a great program.
