Top Ten Uk and US School
Axel Morin posted a topic in Film Schools and ProgramsHello, I found these two articles about the Top Ten Schools in UK & US. I'm mostly agreed but I wonder what this type of ranking can worth? I mean is this accurate? I know finding an University can be confusing.I know I'm confused myself right now looking for mine. But I wonder.... So In you opinion What are the best school and do you think, this kind of ranking is trustable? Here the links http://talesfromtheargo.com/uk-film-schools/ http://talesfromtheargo.com/top-us-film-schools/ Cheers Guys PS : I read a lot of Bad reviews on MET Film School but apparently now it's recommended by NFTS??? https://nfts.co.uk/sign-me-up/pathways-nfts What do you think of that as well?
I'm 16 years old... Yes somewhat young but I have lots of inspiration and I'd say I'm fairly talented with multi-media. I've been learning after effects for over a year now, using it to edit Call of Duty gameplay which particularly involves VFX, Motion tracking, editing techniques(art), cinematic, time-remapping and editing of-course. It is actually very impressive how the Call of Duty editing community has mastered after effects with call of duty footage. Any of you should absolutely take the time to check out some very talented editors; if you're interested i'll refer you to some of them! It is a whole new level of editing and I'm grateful to have started with something without having to use IRL footage from a camera. I could now apply myself to IRL footage and such. I truly want to master a position in the film industry. I'm so inspired by some films and the art of cinematography mixed with editing.. Whether it's an editor, cinematographer, camera-man, or even the whole package. Whether it's to my own profit, a big company, a festival.. I want to learn all about cameras and technique just like I did for editing. Question #1: I'd like to know about what sort of education and/or diploma is needed to get a job at a big company or a big film project.. Those camera men/cinematographers who reach Hollywood; what got them there? Was it recognition and connections or was it schooling/diplomas etc. ? A few examples of cinematographers/camera men ? Question #2: What camera aspects should I look into? (I'm new to the whole thing) I have done some research on the Panasonic Lumix GH3 and came to mind that there are so many features and aspects to reconsider before I buy a camera, a film maker uses that camera and there's a very nice outcome (a slight panoramic, film looking, well toned).. References to some books, youtubers or links would be great. That's it for now... I hope I'm not asking for too much, I guess I could tell I'm pretty passionate about this lol. Thanks !

Eric Schweiger posted a topic in General DiscussionHey im still in highschool just going into grade 12 i live in canada and was wondering which film school to go to. I know the everyone says that Ryerson is the best in canada but i just feel like its more theory then hands on (i know that you do do films and such but not as much). My other thoughts were the new york film academy in the US and the national film and television school in the UK. I feel like those schools are a lot more hands on and getting set experience when ryerson is more this is how film began kinda stuff. So my question really is is it worth the extra money to go to a film school outside of canada? Thanks, Eric
