What the best film schools in the world look for in applications

Straight to the point, no-bullshit—this is a list of the best film schools in the world and how to crack their admission process. Spanning the US and EU, with a special mention for the Film and Television Institute in India, this covers the preliminary research aspiring filmmakers have to do to shortlist their dream school so that you can get to work on fulfilling its requirements. 

Here goes: 

TISCH School of Arts NYU (US)

Community service and a distinct voice. The NYU-based prestigious arts school emphasizes that your creative resume can include a list of activities that are not strictly creative, so long as they highlight “an engagement with your community and/or a significant time commitment from you.”

Their list of requirements includes a portfolio with original works, two creative assignments, the resume mentioned above and a video about yourself. The video, specifically, must be true to who you are and should not be a repetition of why you are applying to the school. The rest is up to you. 

Notable alumni include: Martin Scorsese, Oliver Stone, Reed Morano, Joel Coen, M Knight Shyamalan, Charlie Kaufman, Chris Columbus

FAMU (EU)

Lots and lots of work. The school requires quite a hefty portfolio that includes things like a short feature or documentary (up to 10 minutes long), a storyboard presenting a narrative based on an encounter, two short synopses for short fiction films and an audiovisual self-portrait. 

Notable alumni include: Milan Kundera, Frank Beyer, Agnieszka Holland, Milos Forman, Jasmin Dizdar

London Film School (EU) 

Initiative. This film school has a relatively straightforward portfolio requirement: an original script for a three-minute-long film. However, they provide the option of sending in any other creative work, including photographs, videos or even literary pieces. So, get creative and show them what you’ve got—quite literally—in your arsenal. 

Notable alumni include: Iain Smith (Mad Max), Michael Mann (Heat, Miami Vice), Terry Bredford (Monty Python), Don Boyd (21), Tak Fujimoto (Star Wars, Silence of the Lambs, Gladiator)

American Film Institute (US)

Passion and street smarts that help you tell compelling stories with limited budgets. The institute offers two year masters in fine arts specialising in 6 disciplines—direction, cinematography, screenwriting, editing, production and production design. Admission to each of these programs has different requirements; for instance, the direction course mandates the submission of: 

  • A 10-minutes moving image project that the applicant has personally directed and that best demonstrates individual talent and ability. 
  • An original moving short (five minutes or less) that highlights your storytelling abilities.

Both of these must be accompanied by one-page descriptions of why and how you made these films. 

Notable alumni include: Darren Aronofsky, Neal Baer (Law and Order), Moritz Borman (Terminator Salvation) and Doug Ellin (Entourage)

FTII (Asia) 

Knowledge and a sharp focus on why you want to be a filmmaker. The Pune-based institute has an entrance examination followed by an interview where you must demonstrate why you want to make movies. 

Notable alumni include: Jaya Bachchan, Naseeruddin Shah, David Dhawan, Om Puri, Shabana Azmi, Rajkumar Hirani, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Rao

University of Southern California, LA (US) 

Quality letters of recommendation as well as good communication skills. In addition to your creative portfolio list or list of projects you have worked on and samples of your work, USC requires a compelling personal statement and two letters of recommendation. 

Notable alumni include: Will Ferrel, Macy Gray, LeVar Burton, Forest Whitaker

UCLA

A keen sense of interest in one of the aspects of filmmaking, for both their Masters and undergraduate programs. The requirements for the undergraduate program also include a one-page essay on a challenge that you have faced. 

Notable alumni include: James Dean, Steve Martin, Francis Ford Coppola, Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Jim Morrison and Ray Manzerek.

Cal Arts (US) 

Plans for the future. This film school wants to know how far along you are on your creative journey and where you want to go. In addition to film or video work, the institute requires an artist statement that addresses the issues that inform your filmmaking, your artistic goals, a little bit about the films you want to make and why you’re applying to Cal Arts. 

Notable alumni include: James Mangold (The Wolverine), Tariq Tapa (Zero Bridge), David Nordstrom and Rachel Goldberg

Lodz Film School 

Versatility. In addition to samples of your work, Lodz requires you to submit a self-presentation on who you are and your life, an outline of an original fiction film, an idea for a documentary and a story board on Landscape, Portrait and your observation of an event with no more than five to eight images. 

Notable alumni include: Roman Polanski, Emily Young, Andrzej Wajda and Krzysztof Zanussi

A Lesson On The Importance Of Self-Belief By Srijan Mahajan

This is a three-part story on self belief, one that began when I was still in school. I started playing the keyboard when I was about eight or nine-years-old, and spent the next five-seven years learning everything I could about the instrument. Then, when I got to class 9, a few of my musician friends and I wanted to form a band. You see, the school I attended had an annual Founder’s Day (School Birthday in our school) and we had wanted to perform at it for as long as I could remember. The only problem? We were missing a drummer. 

Till one day I saw that the same school where I’d been learning the keys also organised drum classes. On an absolute whim, I decided to give it a shot so we could complete the band. “How hard could it be?” I thought to myself without realising  that was the first day of the rest of my life. You see, the minute I held the drum sticks in my hand, I had already begun a journey that would take me around the world, playing gigs with many bands, including Parikrama. Needless to say, I also performed at the Founder’s Day. 

Act II

In 2012, I began accepting music production offers but there was a catch: I had no clue how to produce music. A fellow musician and friend, Arsh Sharma would sit in a little corner in his parent’s house learning and he would teach me how to make music. It was here that we went on to record bands and also produce some of our own songs, together as Fuzzculture, with Arsh guiding me the whole way. A few months later, another friend of mine, Nikhil Malik told me that someone he knew was making a movie and needed music for it that he was going to have to produce. Again, on a whim, I pitched the idea of the three of us getting together to do it, instead. By some chance, Nikhil agreed and that right there was the beginning of Studio Fuzz. Together, we worked on the background score for a full-length feature film, MCream when we didn’t have the slightest clue how we’d get it done. What we did know was how to say ‘yes’. 

Third time lucky? 

In 2015, I got curious about making photographs, and decided to make 365 great photographs, one for every day of 2016. This challenge led to me shooting constantly, getting better at photography and, eventually, even getting offered professional photography assignments and a music video–all of which, yep you guessed it, I said ‘yes’ to.

Back to the present

A few days ago, on a particularly rainy and grey morning (the ones that are perfect for a little bit of regression or a pause, if you may), I realised that the one thing that was common between my best work, over a 15-year period,  was that I had no idea how to do it at the time that I decided to do it. In retrospect, learning on the job has contributed entirely to my evolution as both a person and an artist. If I hadn’t said yes to any of those projects, I wouldn’t have learnt to do any of the things I do every day, and my life would’ve looked very, very different. 

So, say yes! I’m sure you’ll figure it out (whatever ‘it’ is)  as you go along. 

 

5 Tarantino Films To Revisit Post The Release Of His Latest Film

Did you know that Quentin Tarantino has only directed nine movies? Yep, that’s right – and he plans to stop entirely after the tenth one. A commitment he intends to keep since he reiterated it once again, post the release of his ninth movie, Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood. He also said that his tenth and final film will most likely be more “epilogue-y”, but refused to divulge any further details. Without the slightest hint of subject matter, plot or release date, who knows when (if at all) this will happen but, given that the Brad Pitt-DiCaprio starrer just hit Indian theatres, chances are you’re in the mood for more Tarantino. 

So, press rewind and re-watch 5 of his best movies to quell your hankering for QT’s brand of movie-making, complete with ensemble casts and unpredictable action: 

Pulp Fiction

Where: Prime Video 

Oh, man. Arguably Tarantino’s finest hour, the 1994 film is an icon in its own right. The story of how the lives of two mobsters, two petty criminals, a gangster’s wife and a boxer get terribly intertwined will leave you breathless…even if you’ve watched it before. Marked by graphic violence, punchy dialogues, non-linear storytelling and memorable performances, Pulp Fiction should be on every cinephile’s list of movies to watch before you die. 

Django Unchained

Where: Netflix

The synopsis of Django Unchained simply reads, “With the help of a German bounty hunter, a freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.”  However, this ode to Spaghetti Westerns (a genre created by Spanish director Sergio Leone, owing its nomenclature to the fact that most of these Western movies were made cheaply in Europe by Italian filmmakers) is marked by incredible performances and a more reckless, free-wheeling Tarantino at its helm, making it one of his best movies. 

Inglourious Basterds

Where: Prime Video

Christoph Waltz is probably the best thing about this movie that tells the story of two plots to assassinate Nazi leadership that culminates in a visually-stunning, and ironic, climax. If you haven’t seen Inglourious Basterds yet, we highly recommend adding it your watch list stat. 

Kill Bill Vol 1 and Kill Bill Vol 2

Where: Prime Video

An ode to grindhouse cinema, including martial arts films and samurai cinema, Kill Bill stars Uma Thurman as the Bride, a pregnant assassin who wakes up from a coma to discover she has been betrayed by her team and their boss, Bill. She swears revenge and sets out to kill Bill and the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad.

Honest Parent Confessions: What Mums and Dads Think of Project Mynt

After the completion of the first round of capsule courses in Filmmaking, Photography and Electronic Music Production, we asked our students’ parents what they thought of the Project Mynt way of learning. And, luckily, we came off looking pretty good! Don’t believe us? Check out this parent-review of the filmmaking course: 

Was there any reluctance before you decided to sign your child up for Project Mynt’s capsule? 

We want our child to explore avenues that help open up his mind and vision to the possibilities in life. The only concerns were regarding the faculty he might get, the sort of infrastructure that would be there, the distance from our home and the safety of our child.  

What is the biggest change you see in your child after the completion of the course? 

This was something he hadn’t done before and we see a rub-off effect in how he does sketching, his favourite hobby, now; he composes a story around what he draws and focuses more on the complete canvas, not just on the characters he’s drawing. 

Are you open to letting them explore unconventional careers as their full-time jobs? 

Why not? This is the best time to be young in India given the possibilities that exist. 

How do you believe that India’s education system needs to evolve so that it can truly benefit your child? 

Address each individual and not just the curriculum. I think the education also needs to be in sync with technology, which is not just about using IT in classes but how technology has changed the world. It’s not about knowing stuff anymore. Google can tell you that. It’s how you use that knowledge that matters. In addition, we ought to mainstream creativity and not just limit it to something they do one class a week or in free periods!

How likely are you to recommend Project Mynt to a friend?

Very likely.

All you need to carry is your equipment, a compelling story and laser sharp focus on what you want your future to look like.  

 Lodhi Garden

On a good day, Lodhi Garden is absolutely stunning; the landscaped lawns are strewn with beautiful, flowering trees, demarcated by stone walkways, and marked by three picturesque tombs from the 15th century. The perfect setting for fitness videos, short films and lifestyle montages, Lodhi Garden opens bright and early at 5am. 

Lodhi Colony Art District

Lodhi Colony underwent an incredible transformation from a sleepy neighbourhood market into a thriving, vibrant art district with stunning graffiti and murals. Perfect at golden hour, and near-perfect the rest of the day, we recommend filming dramatic backdrops in this part of town. 

Hauz Khas Village and Lake

Not just every kind of watering hole, Hauz Khas Village also has a lot of filming locations–from the mysterious fort, the bustling market or the serene lake. The narrow bylanes are perfect for edgy fashion films or sketches. The running track near the lake can obviously be used to shoot both health and lifestyle videos such as restaurant round-ups. The park just outside the village compound is also worth exploring. 

Old Delhi’s Spice Market

Want to try your hand at documentary filmmaking? Head to Old Delhi’s Spice market, located in Gadodia market in Khari Baoli. Not just for the spectacular sunrises and sunsets, the spice market’s greatest draw is that it is steeped in history and full of stories. You never know which one will inspire you. 

Champa Gali

Love love stories? Shoot a short one at this hidden gem in Saidulajab. Tucked away in Saket, away from traffic and real life, Champa Gali feels like a time portal back to simpler times. The entire lane is adorned with fairy lights and comes alive at night.

Films On A Budget!

If you want to understand the craft of filmmaking, you gotta make a film! It’s that simple, and it can also be that budget-friendly—so long as you have a little bit of help. One of the many benefits of living in a digital world is that it has drastically reduced the costs required to shoot and produce a film; don’t get me wrong, it’s still a challenge, but it’s not impossible!  

In fact, use the challenge and let limited funds inspire you to really get creative with filmmaking. Take a cue from living legends, Richard Schenkman (The Man from Earth) or Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity) who directed stunning no-budget films. 

What it boils down to is making a few key adjustments right when you’re starting out. These decisions can not only help you save some big bucks but also add character, infuse creativity and, eventually, help produce a piece of work that you’re proud of. Here are a few nifty tips for making your first ever, low-budget film with as few hassles and bills as possible: 

  1. Shooting in black and white reduces a significant amount of work and money that would be spent during and post-production. 
  2. Using props and situations that are raw and earthy, instead of flamboyant and flashy, is a really good way to cut back on costs. For instance, if there’s a scene that involves the use of guns in your script, maybe you can use a saw or a hammer (easily available in most garages) instead. This can help eliminate things like expensive rentals, sound effects, and editing.
  3. You don’t have to force your imagination and creativity when it comes to filmmaking. Instead, try and build a story that’s closer to your heart and mind. Maybe your city, your college, your school or even your own family can be jumping-off points. Instead of racking up set-building bills or paying hefty actors’ fees, you can try and set your first film in as natural a setting as possible. 

These aren’t just my personal thoughts on filmmaking; these are tips from very successful and renowned directors who, at one time, were only aspiring to become film-makers—just like you. Here’s a video by the Royal Ocean Film Society in which they review younger films that Christopher Nolan, Robert Rodriguez, and Richard Linklater made, discussing techniques and approaches they took to create low-budget marvels of cinema. Have at it!

For more tips on shooting on a minimal budget, attend one of our Filmmaking Capsules  where in a span of 6 days you will learn what it takes to shoot and deliver a short film using minimal equipment and budgets.

No Bullshit Advice For Making Your First Short Film

Making a short film is the perfect way for amateur filmmakers to test the waters and get a feel for the craft before they begin the more daunting task of creating a full-length feature. Not just that, short films can actually be more challenging to make; after all, each one is a capsule of emotions, narration, characters, and subtext that (in an ideal world) convey a complex thought in a limited period of time. Hence, by first turning your focus to a short film, you can really fine-tune your skills and build confidence. 

So what should you remember before you embark on this soul-satisfying, if sometimes difficult, journey? Here are five things that will help you save time, money and effort while still making a professional-looking short film: 

 

  • What’s the point?

 

The layman thinking is that all trending topics or news that’s translated into a film becomes worthy of being submitted to film festivals by default. That’s not true. Yes, there are plenty of them which get through, but there are even more that never see the light of day. The subject doesn’t always have to be about what’s digestible or entertaining for society; your narrative can be about anything as long as it inspires or intrigues. The thing to keep in mind here is that before you flesh out your concept, make it as emphatic as you can for yourself. What is the purpose of what you’re making? What is the end thought or emotion that you want to leave your audience with? Once you can clearly articulate the answers to these questions, you’re ready to take things to the next level.  

 

  • Production can wait

 

If a two-hour film is a novel, a short film is a poem—the key to remember is that a poem has fewer words that convey more meaning. So read the script of your short film again and again, and make it so crisp that every scene, every word and every pause is crucial to the development of the story. After all, you can’t afford to spend hours on shots that won’t even make it to post-production. 

 

  • Choose your team wisely

 

Many first-timers build a team of professionals in the hope that their experience will be an asset. It’s important to remember that that’s not always true. The idea of the film is yours, the creativity and improvisation that you bring to the table are yours, and so is the accountability. The amount of time that members of your team have spent on set is irrelevant; instead, choose to work with people who are as enthusiastic about your vision as you are. 

 

  • Keep your friends close; your AD and cinematographer closer

 

I cannot emphasise this enough: it is crucial that you work extremely closely with your assistant director and cinematographer. Create a schedule with them ahead of the production, and list down every scene, actor, prop, break and hour. Things will not always be as per schedule but creating these logs and lists will mean that two other people, apart from you, know what’s supposed to be happening on set. They will have your back.  

 

  • Never compromise

 

You started this with an idea and sheer enthusiasm. The thought of you wanting to express something through this effort is in itself an achievement. Now you owe it to yourself to bring it to fruition. There will be times when you don’t have the resources to shoot a scene the way you imagined it but let this inspire you. Do what you have to do so that you don’t compromise on your vision; find solutions instead of letting problems weigh you down.

What Makes A Great Film?

Filmmaking is an amalgam of people, processes, and perspectives, and a medium that can entertain, inform, inspire and, sometimes, do all three. Since 1895 when the Lumiere brothers made the first ever moving picture, the art of filmmaking has evolved phenomenally (in no small part) because of filmmakers that have pushed the boundaries of story-telling, removing themselves from preconceived notions or ideas, to create something that is transcendental, relevant and, most importantly, thought-provoking. Automatically, certain films and filmmakers come to mind—from the works of Satyajit Ray to Quentin Tarantino, there are universally-accepted ‘great movies’ that find themselves on lists like ’50 Movies to Watch Before You Die’. 

But what makes a truly great film? What are the important aspects of filmmaking?  Is it the script? Well-developed characters? Cinematography? In fact, it is the combination of all these things—a tight script, a director with a vision, careful casting, lighting, sound and so on—that delivers a significant, unforgettable sensory experience, one that could even last a lifetime. 

The Script

The sub-parts of a good script are a compelling plot line, a seamless weaving together of places and situations, effective dialogue, the conflict (or unending dilemma that draws you in to a make-believe world) and the final climax. Together, these components can either empower the director or hinder his/her vision.

The Acting

The craft of tantalising a viewer’s heart and mind at the same time is called acting. This is an essential aspect of filmmaking. From the greatest depression to boundless happiness, a good actor can convincingly convey every emotion and, in a way, carry the film. The minute the illusion breaks, the viewer is jerked back to real-life. 

The Visuals

Filmmaking is the greatest exploration of one’s imagination, and films are an audio-visual manifestation of it. So, it follows that, irrespective of genre, visuals are the backbone of any film that is worthy of being admired. Camera work, lighting, props, costumes—all these pieces come together to fuel the director’s narrative and create magic. 

The Sound

Think of your favourite film. It is possible that one of the many reasons you love it is the soundtrack, or the background score—even if you don’t immediately know it. The power of sound to transport audiences smack in the middle of the scene is incredible. The necessary complement to visuals, audio can dramatically enhance your movie-viewing experience. 

The Timing

Timing is everything for the craft of filmmaking. Timing is what makes a joke funny, an ordinary situation scary, or a moment intense. It brings structure to the plot, order to the events, and defines the pace at which the movie continues along. 

The Direction

Hundreds of people come together and work for months on end, to turn one person’s vision into reality. While this doesn’t make him or her the most important person on set, it certainly makes the director the controller of the film. The director guides the process and sets the tone for his or her entire crew. The playmaker, a good director harnesses the work of everyone involved in the making of a film and seals it off with his or her distinct stamp. If you think about it, certain styles of filmmaking will stand out and appeal to you more than others, and you will invariably tend to gravitate towards those movies. This is the director’s greatest success.
