I just complete the 12-week evening acting for film class. Although the teachers were not that knowledgeable and the program hasn't helped me grow at all in any aspect.The advertising of giving confidence and the tools I need to proceed on my journey unfortunately never happened, and wefeel the program, itself, was very unorganized and falsely advertised on the internet and syllabus giving empty promises of certain classes I never had. Through out the course, They also changed teachers twice,once in each class, again exemplifying the lack of organization in the whole program. As many of the students have full time jobs and were very committed in their efforts monetarily to the program,as well as,investing the time and energy,I feel like this was not reciprocated back to us from the school. I feel slightly taken advantage of and overall disappointed in the evening program.
The curriculum never touched on Voice, Movement or Shakespeare -three significant parts that were advertised but never completed.- Editing was unpredictable. Often the videos were edited by people other than the camera-people associated with the class and therefore lost the essence of what we were being taught to do.- Logistics were terrible. We were constantly double booked in rooms where classes were going on until 7:30pm, wasting 10-15 minutes at the beginning of every class in figuring out where to go.$3,000 for that,???
I felt ripped!!
Dont even try, the feeling of being taked advantage of isn't good at all!!!

Too much emphasis on schools and not enough on how to make a film.
A group that supports this is a new NYC-based Film Co-Op.http://www.meetup.com/NYC-Film-Co-Op/
Absolutely bang on!
Like many arts filmmaking is just a tiny part on the technical the rest is on practice and art.
Think of a fine art painter mostly it's about painting with brushes that have been largely unchanged for hundreds of years but the dramatic differences in the final work can be incredible!
Analysis and studying is the antithesis of the genuine artist. Which is why I set up www.shootfilmsnow.com.
