It's coming! I was a bit surprised when I got an email letting me know that they added a video-component. There seem to be so many changes from last year:
- new video component
- can add up to 5 references now
- collaboration questions are now non-film situations

Trying to apply this year again! Hopefully, now that I've been practicing film fulltime instead of part-time, I'll have more to put on in my portfolio and essays in general. Anyone wants to swap essays?

Good luck to everyone involved!

I would like too! I am currently working on new essays while the decision for Spring 2020 doesn't come out.

Let me know if there's a feature or a new section that I can develop with this site to help you with this. Or simple conversation swaps are easiest which of course is already possible but less collaborative with a group.

I could do a private forum section for discussing this where Google can't see anything. That already exists actually:


Let me know. It's great that you guys are helping each other out! :)

good idea! thanks chris!
Yeah to do it you would create a private group called something to do with collaborating or essay swapping or something like that. Whatever you like. Something so people who are interested can find it.

Be sure to select private and choose the private forum option.

That way only people you approve can view the messages posted there.

To create a group you need to be a Supporting Member though.

Would love to join the private group too! I'm also applying for fall 2020 and would love to get outside perspectives!

I don't think one's been created yet if you'd like to create it. As a Supporting Member (thank you!) you're able to create groups.

Call it something to do with collaborating or essay swapping or something like that. Whatever you like. Something so people who are interested can find it.

Be sure to select private and choose the private forum option.

Let me know if yo have any questions.

Thanks!

Probably. But from past years experience I'd try be to get it in way before that in case there are technical difficulties.

Hi all! I'm also applying to the program this year, and I had a question regarding the video option for the media sample. It asks that the video should be no longer than five minutes, however, the video I have is about 5 seconds over. Are they strict when it comes to precise time span, or do you think it's okay?

Yes. Cut it down to under 5. You need to follow that direction to the letter or they'll disregard it as it shows you can't follow directions.

Besides... Cutting things down is a good skill to learn. What can you keep? What can you lose? Usually things only get better. Addition by subtraction.
