Mine lasted 30 minutes, and the interviewer was very kind and approachable. I came out with a mixed feeling, however, because I spitballed quite a lot because the interview became so casual and conversational haha.

@ScriptToScreenDream how did your interview with him go?

My interview also lasted 30 minutes! Yes, I agree the interviewer was open and easy to talk to. I had fun talking to him. We ended up talking about social media and climate change just for fun. He didn't mention anything about my application until the very end. He said he liked this one particular scene in the short film I submitted--so that made me feel good.

Does anyone still have interviews scheduled? Trying to figure out if they might start sending out decisions soon
I have been doing some research on that, too. In the 2018 thread, they got decisions out as early as mid-October, which actually would fit your interviewer's answer about decisions going out in two-three weeks! But last year apparently they had a longer reviewing process which led to the earlier decision coming out by late October. So it's likely sometimes this month.

All we can do now is stay sane and not F5 youSC constantly ugh!

You can also sort by decision date in our tracker. :)

Hello, I was just wondering for your writing samples, which font and font size did use? Also did you double space everything? It wasn't very clear on the application requirement, unless I miss it...
