Ryan, one of the issues we had to consider was that geographically we wanted to stay within a reasonable distance from CT. California in general was deemed too far at this point in the kid's life. Right now, it's too late to make any changes to her immediate future, she is going to Tisch in the fall. I wish I had asked more of these questions a year ago.
Warren, I agree, she may have to do that
Well, if you go pricey it may well be Tisch :)
Thank Warren, this actually goes back to my original question. Had my daughter gone to a much cheaper school there would have been significant funds left over to finance one or two indie style films. With her going to Tisch, there won't be such luxury. We struggled with this decision a lot.
Warren, are you saying that directors are self-financing their films? Don't they get budgets from studios? What are studios for then?
Thx Chriss, Tisch program is a BFA, lots of credits in film but at least 44 credits in GenEd. That averages out to about 2 courses per semester in non-film related classes.
