He moved to the film school three times and was a member of a family where education kept the highest value, obviously a fan of filmmaking. However, I emphasize that I will be "trained". The school is not the only way of education, and in some situations there is no formal school to learn critical information. The school is never a time-consuming way to discover the huge foundations
The Big Five
The Big Five Film School at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), the University of South California (USC), and the American Film Institute (AFI) on the west coast of Los Angeles and the University of New York (NYU) and Columbia University on the east coast of New York
UCLA is best known for its writers in the summer. Film Scenario Credits, USC knows better that bikers directors, AFI are often incredible filmmakers, NYU's reputation for eastern coastal filmmaker style, and Columbia is a whole big school with exceptional film theory for all programs. Any school you go to on the Big 5 will have an incredible experience for every program. Also, renowned professionals and executives of large companies teach courses or speak as a guest thanks to the reputation of the school.
The disadvantage of the USC is that it is operated as a studio. Only 5 people can get to the dissertation if they are graduate students. Each student is one of the 5 students, then 20 or 30 people do not get the thesis, but can help the 5 person who gets the film. The USC turns to run again as a studio. USC is often unparalleled in its networking capacity and aggressively distributes its students to the industry.
UCLA is best known for its screenwriters. The USC may be able to disable UCLA, but writers cannot write UCLA writers. An average UCLA graduate scriptwriter will leave with an 8-character script. UCLA scriptwriters write a typical length of script in a 10-week quarter that looks like an 8-week writing job. USC scriptwriters write a full-length script for 1 year.
Peter Stark's production program at USC is great for filmmakers, but the UCLA programming program is perfect for producers to know how to go out and just get started.
Similarly, the USC "directs the thesis only to 5", the AFI is even tougher. Not only are there a limited number of theses, not every filmmaker is always invited to come back to school for a second year. It is hard to get into these film schools than to get to Harvard Law School, simply because Harvard is more involved in applicants than big movie schools, so for me, AFI and USC are really not worth cutting or slipping after they had already to win the chance of winning the lottery by accepting it.
Other Film Schools
Another school worth mentioning is the Florida State University, which accepts an equal number of writers, directors, operators and editors to form teams for thesis projects. This seems to have done the most. The Philadelphia Church University is great and there is a need for experimental filmmakers
But usually every movie program is a great movie program while studying.
