Why Go to Film School?

Streaming Video - 2006
Rate this:
For the cost of tuition, an independent filmmaker could do a feature-length movie-so why go to film school? Three film students at Columbia and New York Universities, along with NYU alumnus Spike Lee, talk about why school was right for them and how academic experience helps them as filmmakers. The strengths and differences of the two schools are discussed by numerous professors, including Mary Schmidt Campbell, dean of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts; Bruce Ferguson, dean of Columbia's School of the Arts; Janet Roach, Columbia screenwriting professor; Bill Reilly, NYU directing professor; and Annette Insdorf, Columbia film history professor. This program provides a good sense of what a film curriculum is all about and how these skills and opportunities can be put to use creatively as well as financially.
