Question by whitebutterfly01: What should I look for in a major if I want to get into film (particularly film editing?)?
Also, what colleges have good programs for this (and have creative writing courses as well)? Thank you!
Also, I live in Maryland and don’t really want to go to a college halfway across the country…

Apply to major in film at the film schools at UCLA, USC, CalArts, and NYU. Those are the best programs in the country, and once you’re in you can choose classes that provide the technical training you’re looking for. You may be able to specialize or it may just come under a film major – check the school websites for more info. All of these universities offer creative writing classes as well.
