    I was initially planning on applying for Fall 2019, but Spring might actually be a better idea. How come you guys wanted to go with Spring rather than waiting for the Fall and starting then?

    I am also considering Spring 2019, I guess there's still time to apply before 15th of August 2018. However I have one concern, as program that interests me the most is Peter Stark Producing - but I was unable to find it in the application list?..

    Website says the application deadline for the program is 15th of Nov 2018 (for Fall 2019), but until today I have no idea how to apply and choose it. So in case Fall 2019 program will appear no longer available - I'll proceed with Film & TV Production (Spring 2019).

    My aim is either Feature Film & TV Producer or Talent Agent, so I am not quite sure what program suits my goals best...

    From what I know about Stark, admission to that program is as competitive as it gets. The people who are admitted have usually tried multiple times to get in and failed repeatedly before getting accepted. If you aren’t sure you want to be a producer, you’re probably wasting your time applying to Stark.

    But if you do want to go forward with it, you have till November 15 to apply.

    I’d suggest if you wanna go that route that you zero in on why producing is gonna be your real goal and then on your application really stress why you deserve to get in at Stark. Good luck!

    I am actually more of a contractual / business / management type, not a writer or storyteller (though I believe I have understanding if story is somewhat good or not). I would consider myself as a sales person with an artistic taste, passion for feature films and strong desire to work in the film & TV industry.

    So, after reading all available books and materials about talent agencies and film industry, I believe that becoming a producer or talent agent is what I want. But I see that there are no programs preparing future talent agents at all... So I thought that producing is the closest thing to both, correct me if I'm wrong?..

    From my most recent search I have this programs in mind:

    USC Peter Stark Producing Program
    USC Film & TV Production
    LMU Film & TV Producing
    UCLA Producers Program
    Chapman Film & TV Producing
    AFI Producing Program (though this one is the most expensive)

    I'd really appreciate if someone could suggest me another program options, more focused in the talent agenting business. As after several days search I am still a bit lost here.

    Thanks!
