Film School

Film School

Many artistic graduates are interested in going to film school after high school or upon completing an undergraduate degree. Many of these students have a bent for drawing, photography, acting or writing and see film as the best way to use these talents and the most likely way to make a living doing what they love.

Not everyone who graduates from film school earns the kind of income Steven Spielberg enjoys, but many find that their opportunities for success in this field are greatly increased after graduating from a good film school. As with any other arts fields, there is fierce competition between artists, but the best and most skilled filmmakers often succeed in their profession.

Since film school is a significant investment of time and money, it is a good idea to take a few brief film classes to see whether or not film is really right for you before making the plunge into a full time program at film school.
