    SCAD’s film school was way too young when I attended and was riddled with problems from growing too quickly. Since graduation, I have found work almost constant and steady as a freelancer (knock wood).

    Would I do it all over again? Hindsight and living in LA would make that answer a resounding NO. A better choice in my opinion would be to go out and work, don’t pay the crazy tuition. Live in a production heavy city, do free internships, meet people and learn by doing. The digital world is making it really easy to achieve this.

    Debt Accrued: $25,001 - $50,000

    Found work after graduation? Yes

    I attended the Savannah College of Art and Design, known better as SCAD. It’s nestled in Savannah, Georgia, although there is a smaller campus in Atlanta, GA as well as Lacoste, France and Hong Kong. I studied both Performing Arts and Film and Television, directing as well as performing in a number of short films. I also did projects in Sound Design, Postproduction, Screenwriting, etc. It was a really well rounded program. I graduated in June of this year after 4 years of study.

    I didn’t have any debt as a RESULT of going to school, per say. I do have my average student loans (around 4,000) but was fortunate enough to receive scholarships for my high school academics as well as a performance audition that I did for the school. I would definitely say that the school met my expectations. It’s interesting…when in high school I certainly dreamed of going to film school and studying, but my dreams were limited in a way because I was unaware at the time of what film school encompassed. As it turns out, a lot more than I could have imagined at the time.

    I worked my ass off, to be honest, and developed great relationships with my professors and utilized the equipment the school had to offer. I already know that the past four years were some of the best of my life. It sounds horrifically cheesy, I know. But it’s the truth.

    Since graduating in June, I have moved to the city. I have worked in casting offices (Paramount Pictures new Footloose movie) and have assistant directed some staged productions. I am still applying for film related jobs as well, but at the moment performance is taking a precident. However, I did recently apply to and am waiting to hear from a company that produces instructional videos (shooting, editing, and directing–depending on the project).

    So it’s an exciting time, for sure, with so many options ahead of me. It is also a terrifying time, with so many bills ahead of me. Still, I know that I recieved one of the best film educations in the nation, and I would certainly recommend my school to others. To say that I would do it all again is an understatement. I believe it may be just recent graduate nostalgia, but I really loved my college experience. I was a part of a family at my school, I learned life lessons, and I think I am well prepared for the future.
