Are You Ready to Be the Next $100,000 Joke?
When we went to film school in the 1990s, there was still an excuse; it was hard to crack the film business and even get your hands on film equipment. Nowadays, it’s ridiculous. HD cameras and the internet have launched more careers than any film school in existence.
Film School Secrets begs the question of film schools: how stupid do you have to be to pay $30,000 a year to use equipment you could buy for $3,000 or rent for $100 a day? How deluded do you have to be to imagine that a certificate of completion or degree from one of these film schools makes a lick of difference in the film world?
Imagine Ari Gold bowing down and listening to a grad from one of these film schools. Ain’t happening, baby.
Now before you accuse us of naysaying and being negative, hear this: we know, because we were dumb enough to do this ourselves. We are film school alumni. We loved our film schools in the same way you love that guy that mugged you for teaching you a valuable lesson about self defense. We walked the walk so we talk the talk, to anyone who will listen. Which is sadly not too many people.
We hate to say this, but it’s true: most aspiring filmmakers are too pretentious to listen to our logical advice. Which is this: to get ahead in the film business, you need to understand how it works as a business. In 2011 it’s never been easier or more possible to have a career making movies. And never in history have so many people been spending a small fortune to learn the same stuff you could learn yourself in a couple of days.
Film Schools: The Nasty Truth Revealed
Check out film school alumni success tories: pretty slim pickins. All of NYU and USC’s big names are from back in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. You haven’t heard of anyone who went to the Art Institutes, Full Sail, or NYFA making it big. Even so, for every one student who gets a good job or makes a headline, there are thousands more who are saddled with debt, drop out of the industry, or have no clue how to get started on their career. We double dog dare you to show us any film school grad that warrants the insane cost of these schools.
But unfortunately, even though all the evidence is pointed against it, film schools have become a thriving money making machine. Many film schools bank over $50 million last year. It’s a gold mine. Sadly, most aspiring filmmakers would rather spend $100K to sit in a classroom and play with a Macbook than hear the truth. And they usually end up using that $100K degree to get a job picking up coffee or dry cleaning for someone else.
