Question by vampirespike11: What are the major benefits of going to film school?
I am currently enrolled in the local college and getting an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts: Broadcasting.
I want to study film and try to get a career as a writer/director. I am currently working on my very first 120 page script as we speak and I would love to be able to one day write a script and be able to direct it myself.
I also have a few video pieces under my belt to make a demo reel to submit to schools including:
1. Friday the 13th Location Documentary
2. The 1st Place Stephen Lynch Halloween Music Video Contest entry
3. The submission I entered for the Jay Leno Correspondent video contest
4. 6-minute educational spoof film I entered into the New Jersey Skills USA competition for my past high school
5. 5 minute MTV Movie Awards “Saw” Spoof that I entered in that contest.
I am currently looking into the LA Film School, NYFA, NYU or UCLA.
I am just wondering whether or not it is beneficial to go to a film school and, if so, which school would be the best choice? Thanks!
