Top Film Schools

1. The requirements to get into one of the top film schools can make it difficult to get accepted into a program.

These film schools take students of all ages and backgrounds on a rolling basis. However, top programs tend to keep student and teacher ratios small, causing classes to fill up quickly. It is wise to enroll at least a few weeks prior to when the courses begin. This will give the student a much better chance at getting accepted for the classes that are desired. Waiting too late will put the student in jeopardy of not getting their first choice in courses.

2. In choosing a top film school, it is important to consider the location of the program.

The location of the film school is crucial. Most reputable programs are located in cities such as London, Paris, New York, Los Angeles and Vancouver. Location attracts prominent directors and allows the opportunity to work with real productions. These large cities are often locations for major movies shot by some of the most famous and well-known people associated with the industry. Taking courses in these cities may offer more opportunities to have a hands-on experience with a major production.

3. It is necessary to have some experience to enroll in the top film schools.

Film schools require no experience. They offer beginner level workshops and classes for people with no prior experience. Typical schools offer anything from one day courses, 2-8 week programs and year-long programs.

4. More and more of the top film schools are offering certificates and courses in digital film technology.

Good film schools keep up with current technologies. With the onset of digital technology, many of these programs are now offering courses in digital filmmaking, digital animation and more. Many programs will offer or grant a specific certificate in digital technology.

5. In selecting a program or course of study, it is important to pray for guidance from God.

1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
