Hi Jenna! I didn't go to film school (yet! I might be joining USC this fall) but I went to an acting conservatory. Some of the electives I took were film and society, Great films and women in film. My professors did a really amazing job at showing us select films from the 1900's all the way through the 80's and had us discuss the movies before an after. What helped was that all my professors were A list actors and they were therefore very resourceful. Some of my friends who went to film school didn't have the same experience though. However, I felt like the classes were very introductory and not very specific to certain areas that I would have loved to learn about like aspect ratios, shooting styles, equipment and editing- all these I'm teaching myself. Was it worth it to spend all that money though? On good days I say YES on bad days I say, "A good day is coming!"
