Question by Megan F: What should I be doing in preparation to apply for film school to be a screenwriter/director?
I’d like to major in film studies of some sort, and minor in theatre? Does this sound like a good idea? I think the two of them would go well together. I was looking at UNCW. Any suggestions? I attend my community college for my basic courses right now for financial reasons. What else should I be doing or looking into to be ready to fulfill my goals?
