你好,我申请了维多利亚艺术学院的电影电视专业,但还没有收到面试通知。我想问一下,面试的时候会不会有很多人被拒绝,面试时具体需要准备哪些问题呢?

Hi Emma, I don't understand Chinese, but I've translated your message.

I also haven't received any interview invitations, which makes sense since my application status is still "Assessment in progress." I have no idea about the number of interviewees or the accepted applicants. The interview questions (not the specific questions, only the topics) are stated here Master of Film and Television - auditions and interviews

Fingers crossed for us!

Nice to hear from you, perspicaciousvine. my current application status is the same as yours, but I wasn't sure if I'd be notified of an interview so I was considering whether I needed to do some preparation ahead of time. thanks a lot for your reply, it greatly solved my problem. By the way, you are the only student I've seen applying to the same school and the same program as me, and I basically can't find any information about this program on social media in China. I hope we both get an offer, and I look forward to meeting you in Melbourne!
 
Hi Lingchuan and Emma, I’ve received the interview invitation. I chose Monday 4 Dec, wish me luck (and for both of you)!
Hi I just finished my interview, here is the procedure:

The interviewees are the two leading professors of this program.

1. warm-up: For the first 5 minutes, they first asked me to talk something about my previous work and studying experience and ask something about my hometown.

2. Both of us turn off our cameras and mics, they spend 7 mins watching the video I submit.

3. They asked me something about my submitted work, my conception of filmmaking, and my future plans.

4. I ask two questions about the program

So I think the things you would spend time preparing are: 1. things you want to do in this program 2. Your conception and approach to your submitted short 3. Your future plan as a filmmaker. 4. Some questions you would like to know

Hope this helps you! Good Luck. Feel free to ask me if you have any other questions.

Hi Lingchuan, thanks so much for the information! Very kind of you.

May I know whether you have an academic and/or professional background in filmmaking or perhaps other creative fields?

For the submitted film work, my issue is that the intended original concept for this film (when I planned it several months ago) was slightly different from the final result (which I've submitted to the application) haha. It'd be a >10-mins film if I included all shots I made back then, but even these shots I omitted are actually not working as they're supposed to. Do you think I should tell this issue (this transformation process) or highlight only what's in the submitted film work? And is it allowed to propose a different version of the film (the same film but with improved technicalities, such as clearer audio) by sending them another link?

Thank you so much, fingers crossed for us!
 
Hi Peculiarvine. No worries.

1. I have a degree in sound design and have experience working on film as a sound designer. But do not worry if you do not have any, from what I know this program is quite open to students from diverse backgrounds and will start by teaching all the basic filmmaking skills and techniques in the first year.

2. Actually my full version film is a 15-mins one, I cut a 7-mins clip. Actually, the questions they gave me about my work are
1. Introduce your work to us 2. What you will change if you make this short again?
So I think you have a chance to mention your full version while answering the second question. (I did it actually, but it is your choice if you want to talk about it. But I am not sure if they will ask the same questions to everyone. ) However, seems impossible to send them another link cause they have a very tight schedule(They even have to watch your submitted video during the interview! )

3. Really no need to be nervous. They are all cheerful people and the atmosphere of the interview is quite good. They just want to know you more as a person and a filmmaker. If you want more details, how about we contact each other through WhatsApp if you have one?Good luck.

Hi Lingchuan,

1. Wow cool! Yeah I heard that too when I joined their virtual open session. Kinda a relief for me haha since I only had a few production experiences after joining several filmmaking workshops. I took a business major for my bachelor's degree and had professional experiences in this field before career-switching.

2. Ah I see. Ok I'll think about it haha still unsure whether I need to tell the original concept.

3. Noted! I've sent my WhatsApp number to the conversation section on your profile.

Thanks!
