    Hey blukat-- can you cool it on reposting the same post over and over? You posted "2016 BlueCat Screenplay Competitioin Call for Short Scripts" six times the other day, and spelling aside, it's annoying and hardly the first time you've done this. It's borderline spam at this point.

    You can post once per event-- updates if they contain new info... but other than that... please don't..

    Thanks,
    W

    Personally I would check out DeSales University's TV/Film program. And stay away from schools like Temple if you're really looking to get the most out of your education before you're just a senior (or upperclassmen that can finally be deemed knowledgable enough to use high-end equipment).

    DeSales is known for its astounding and currently flourishing arts program from dance to film to theater. This creates for a great and collaborative environment from the start. Specifically DeSales has a great balance of theatrical and hands on approaches unlike Temple. It isn't as lop-sided. You learn how to edit, understand fundamentals of studio lighting, sound and much more right off in the beginning. Plus a load of interesting media and film history courses you take. Being only a sophomore at DeSales I can honestly tell you I have learned an incredibly amount and have had an amazing experience so far. There have been multiple students that have transferred from other film schools such as RIT, Ithaca and even Temple into DeSales booming film program. I think this is a true testament to the school's incredible program. Not only does this school heavily allow its students to be involved, but has a phenomenal equipment cage. I'm serious you won't find it this good anywhere else. The school currently has all odds and ends film equipment that students can sign out from dollys, to sliders, steadicams, 5d, 6d, black magic 4k cameras, canon cinema cameras and now the school is getting 2 red cameras. Plus some of the professors write and edit film articles for film magazines, so many film companies allow the school to test out the latest and newest equipment and review it before other schools can even purchase it. Also on a side note, DeSales was one of the first schools to demo the RED EPIC Dragon 6k camera. Temple I know for a fact didn't get this opportunity and also does not allow freshman to learn and use higher-end equipment their freshman or even sophomore year. I just don't understand the philosophy behind that. Maybe it's the size of the school meaning too many students to allow this to? Sometimes bigger isn't always better, as DeSales is much much smaller than Temple. You may think then, well all this equipment use and well rounded education is great...but what is the percentage of students who actually get jobs from DeSales in the film world? Well, it's actually really really high. Over 89% according to the school, get a job in film or media related work within 6 months of graduation. Students have achieved jobs working for Travel channel to Fox, from Warner bros. to ILM (Industrial Lights and Magic). Since the program is also paired with the TV or television side it really broadens the spectrum of experience one will receive. Also there have been many famous guest speakers and events that have happened at DeSales. I invite you to check out DeSales University's website and browse more of this information on the TV/Film major page. Really great school, unique, one of a kind, small but powerful. You will learn a lot, and obtain a well-rounded experience.

    Also before you question my knowledge of Temple and other film schools. I have toured and visited other film and media schools from Chicago to New York to Temple. I have in fact actually toured Temple's facilities more than once and was not the impressed. I felt that the school had outdated technology and this is a complaint amongst students that I personally know that go there or have witnessed myself upon my visit. However Temple has more ties with radio and communication if you're more interested into broadcast then simply TV/Film.
