    Hi Everyone!
    I know it's a little early but wanted to reach out and see if anyone was planning on applying to the USC Peter Stark program for fall of 2018?! I know I am and was wondering if anyone else was!
    I'm also thinking of applying to the UCLA one but USC would be the number one for sure. :)

    Hi Sierra!
    I'm glad you started a thread! I was about to start one today. I am also applying to Peter Stark 2018 as well as to the DGA's Assistant Director Trainee Program as a fall back

    Anyone have any advice on how to structure the extra bit they want at the end of the resume for travel, artistic experience etc?

    I just added two or three more sub sections of my resume for travel and experience and whatever else it asked for highlighting the places that I have traveled to, not in too much detail but easy to read and stuff
    My resume for the application is 2 pages now instead of one

    @sierraskis I'm working on my application as well and was wondering if you actually wrote a bit about your artistic experience/travels etc or just kind of put down bullet points. I'm still trying to figure out how to structure everything! Thank you :)

    Also, this might be a stupid question, but what is the difference between artistic experience and creative projects? At least in my case both seems pretty similar :(

    Its more in bullet point form with a little bit of description, I also don't have a ton to say about my travels anyway other than where and why I traveled to those places. I think artistic and creative are sort of the same, I made mine the same category pretty much...good luck!!

    @sierraskis Ok great that's kind of what I did, too and I'll probably combine "artistic experience" and "creative projects" and just do my best (although I really don't like having only half of the second page filled :()
    Thanks! Good luck to you too! :)

    If we've submitted the application, how soon do we need the LoR and transcripts to come in? When should interviews happen?
    Also, how does Stark feel about non-film applicants?

    I've been hearing that about 400 people apply for the 25 spots and competition is INSANE!

    @sierraskis @Anja Yeah I just listed out my travels as a list of countries I've been to. I feel like Artistic Experience is more general and Creative Projects is more for specific things i.e. filmography if you have any. Just a guess really but thats how I think I'm going to structure it.

    @Citizens Your transcripts etc have to be postdated (in the mail) by the 15th so as long as you order them before then it should be ok. As for non-film applicants, it is my understanding that they aren't necessarily looking for people with film experience and in previous threads I saw some people thinking having too much experience hurt them as they are already in the industry. I think just give them the best picture of what you do have to offer and why you want to be a part of the industry.

    @Keegan Thanks! That’s a good thought, that artistic experience is a little more general. I think I’ve filled everything out now and am happy with my CV/resume. Still not sure if it’s good enough but I’ve tried my best :)
