Hi there!

I recently graduated from USC School of Cinemat Arts undergrad, and just submitted my application to the Stark Producing program a couple days ago. Figured I’d make a thread for it on here in case anyone else has applied!

Hi, I applied as well. Good luck to you all!
I'm curious, as an undergrad graduate from USC SCA, what made you also want to pursue the Stark Producing Program?
For sure. So, I majored in Cinema & Media Studies which is SCA's BA program, and while it was a wonderful experience it wasn't production heavy like their BFA programs are. I also wasn't completely convinced what area of the industry I wanted to occupy until after graduation. I figured I might as well apply to the producing program since I have a deep passion for creating content.

Just checking in and wishing everyone well! Does anyone know if they are still doing interviews this time around? It doesn't say anything about them on the Stark page online so I thought I'd ask!

I believe they are still doing interviews or at least it doesn’t say anything anywhere leading me to believe the opposite. I called the School of Cinematic Arts and the lady I spoke to said notifications for interviews should be going out in the next week or so, or at least that is their plan.

Oh gosh, this is so nerve-racking yet exciting! Thank you for sharing.

Hi! Was she just talking about SCA or specifically talking about the Stark Producing Program?

I can't say for certain, I mentioned that I had applied to the producing program and she told me that SCA interview notifications would be going out in the next week or so. Whether or not she meant Producing specifically, I'm unsure.

Hey everyone, I've checked the last 3-4 years in the application tracker for the Stark Program and they seem to contact most "accepted" applicants for interviews in the last week of January or first week of February, so my best guess is that we'll start hearing from them between 1/25 and 2/5. Their website currently says "decisions will be made by late February."

Also, @JHD for some reason I'm under the impression that, unlike the other grad programs at SCA, Stark specifically requires an interview. I can't seem to find that in writing anywhere, but it might've been mentioned at one of the open house events. I could be mistaken though.

I was under that impression too, at least based upon what this site indicates
