If you (or someone close to you) have been thinking about going to film school, than this ‘pros and cons’ list will help make the decision.
As a filmmaking professional and teacher at a number of well known film programs and universities, I have seen and heard it all. I am often asked by students and parents; ‘Should I go to film school?
My answer: ‘Yes and No.’
Sorry, but you have to decide what is important to you. Here are the pro + con factors that will help you make the decision.
I sincerely hope this list is helpful.
You are at a crossroads. You have to make decisions. Not deciding is still a decision.
Be brave and determined by the action you take. Most of all, don’t be afraid of asking questions when you visit schools.
My career focused on helping students succeed. Success comes in many forms. Some people succeed because they went to film school. Some succeed in spite of not going to film school. Some people succeed in spite of film school.
