    For more than 30 years, Tisch School of the Arts has drawn on the vast resources of New York City and New York University to create an extraordinary training ground for the individual artist. Our students learn their craft in a lively, inventive environment that combines the professional training of a conservatory with the liberal arts education of a major research university.

    Tisch's eminent faculty members -- all professionals and creative artists in their own right who set the standards in their fields, have received Oscars, Tonys, Obies, Emmys, Grammys, Bessies, and many other professional awards. As you work closely with these renowned professors, you will find the process of creating and collaborating as part of a close-knit, stimulating community of students and faculty to be both professionally valuable and personally rewarding.

    Tisch's facilities comprise one of the most modern and complete physical plants of any school of performing and media arts in the nation. Facilities include 60 editing rooms, 25 film and video screening rooms, sound-mixing studios, one of the largest soundstages in the East, numerous photography darkrooms and laboratories, and six sprung-floor dance studios.

    Beyond the classrooms and studios of Tisch are the incredible cultural and artistic resources of New York City -- an endlessly inspiring backdrop for countless filmmakers, photographers, and playwrights. You will find that the city provides you with constant exposure to the very best examples of your chosen profession. In addition to coursework, internships can give you the most hands-on exposure to the most exciting work done in the industry as you work side by side with established professionals in film, television, radio, theatre, photography, and dance.

    As a Tisch student, you have the opportunity and the privilege to follow in the footsteps of such illustrious Tisch alumni as Oliver Stone, Alec Baldwin, Spike Lee, Amy Heckerling, Ang Lee, George Wolfe, Tony Kushner, and Marcia Gay Harden -- men and women who have admirably succeeded in redefining the performing and media arts.




    I don't know? I remembered a movie where kids went to NYU for film and were getting murdered so thats the only film related school I know of. Holler.

    ummm....... And the Vancover film school is crap from what I've heard.
    A friend of mine demanded his tuition back and they actually gave him 1/3 of the year back.
    He was told to expect certain things, and they didnt deliver.


    but for the east coast...... NYU Tisch.


    but really... fuck a film school.
    I speak the truth on that.
    The only thing I got out of film school
    was drunk, laid, drunk, laid, drunk and laid.
    Hell... it beats getting a degree in english.

    and just FYI... there's 2 kinds of film schools.

    the artsy wanker schools where you talk about obscure films all day but no one (proffs included) even knows what a grip stand or a kinoflow really does.

    the tech school that trains people to be news crews and how to get their hands dirty and get a paycheck.




    --- guess which one I'd recommend

    word to key...

    NYU, USC, AFI...

    I go to SCAD. Its got a real weird reputation, and the town's pretty dead. But the school's film dep. is pretty badass. Tons of equipment, guaranteed to get into the major, guaranteed to shoot as much as you want. Unlike some schools that only let certain students shoot thesis films.

    FSU is good too. They pay for your film.

    I don't study film at school fyi...

    yeah really it's all about getting into the gear room,
    shooting as much shit as your can for free,
    and using the suites as much as possible.

    before I went to film school, I told myself that
    I would sleep with the hottest girl in the program.
    It took me 2 years... but It happened. That was WAY
    more rewarding that having some shit submitted to some amature hour festival bullshit.

    Yeah there's some like that out here to.

    Trebas is the notorious one. It's like 30k to get a diploma
    and there's no guarantee of a job. The best way to get work....
    go to the cheapest college that has half decent gear
    and get to know everyone you're stuck with.
    Your peers are your hiring pool. For real.

    Do not go to film school. Seriously, do NOT go to film school. You don't want to major in poverty.

    I mean, if you know film is what you want to devote your life to, then it couldn't hurt to go to film school. you learn a hell of a lot.

    But, you're not guaranteed a job actually making films once you're out of school. From what I've gathered Kilo, you're situation seems a lot more enjoyable than the kinds of jobs most film kids get out of school.

    If you have enough drive, you can study film on your own and major in something else at college. At least that's what I'm hoping.....

    Although it depends on who you know most of the time, if you have enough drive I wouldn't sweat it too hard.

    But, if you or your parents are breaking their backs to put you through school, and you're gonna have a ton of loans to pay off afterwards, you may want to try another field of study.

    yeah... college is an investement and you need to think about payback.
    If you invest 30k into an MBA, you will be making the money back.
    If you invest 30K into film school.... you are retarded.
    If you invest 30K into a FILM and you enjoy watching it when it's done,
    then you have well spent the money. Simple.

    A lot of my film school was just kids who thought it would be 'cooler' than a biz course.
    There were also kids with cameras glued to their hands who shot everything they saw.
    Those kids made good flicks and are working today.
