Quick question, how long is the film production program? Is it three or four years? I can't seem to find it on USC's website.

Has anyone else done a Zoom video interview during this intake? My interviewer has scheduled an hour long Zoom video interview. My interview for Spring was just over a phone call (still lasted about an hour though).

Still anxiously waiting for any news from USC. I have to reupload my undergrad transcript to the general application page and they only confirm that they have received it and would re-evaluate last Friday... So I guess I still have hope?

Can you explain a little more? I had my interview and I'm trying to gage how the experience was
So my interviewer basically called me while driving to their doctors appointment. He had my name mixed up with another applicants so I corrected him. He just asked me to take it from there and ask him any questions that I may have.

We talked about the types of people we meet on a film set. What would be the biggest outcome of attending USC (the interviewer said it's the industry connections). He specially mentioned how surprised he was when he moved to LA years ago and discovered how half the people working in Hollywood were USC alum. We talked about my undergrad experience and where I went to school. We talked about where I grew up and some of his background. To sum it up, it felt like a great opportunity to talk to and ask questions to an industry professional who has a successful Hollywood career. An opportunity often hard to come by in my opinion :)

I had my interview this morning and I’m very happy with how it went! It just felt like she was trying to get to know me better!

She asked questions about my short film submission (this stood out to her the most from my application). She also asked about my values and we spoke about how to be a successful student at USC.

Overall I think it went well and really just tried to be myself! I asked a few questions as well that we elaborated on :)

good luck to you other applicants!! D

I still haven’t had an interview request yet :( does anyone know if they are still sending them out?
I think each person who reviews applications is different. Maybe the person who has your application hasn’t done interviews yet!

I also read on the article on here that many people who are accepted don’t interview!
