This is an economic question every potential high school kid should ask. In a freelance industry, does it make sense to spend 30k, 50k, 100k for film school?
In my opinion, the answer is no. There are cheaper alternatives, such as the Maine Workshops or Community College. Also, with site like NoFilmSchool and cheap gear, one can learn on their own.
I did go to film school and had a blast but I'm still paying back student loans, the bane of my life. I'm fortunate to be working in my field as a DP, but if I had to do it over again, I would have done a cheaper option and work a regular job to pay for it.
