I am in the film program here and ever since attending my outlook on movies, television, and screenwriting has been changed drastically. Some of the teachers here may be a bit wacky, but a lot of them come from backgrounds in the industry so most know what they're talking about. I also have some friends in the Photojournalism program who have learned a lot about photo composition and have produced some fantastic work! Back to the film program, I really enjoyed some of the classes I've taken here like (Digital Audio/Video,Lighting, and Screenwriting), but for some I wish I would've...

    This has been my dream school since sixth grade. This school is small and allows for a large amount of teacher student time. I have learned more in two classes of professional photography than i have ever imagined.

    Brooks is an awesome place. I don't feel like I am in school. I feel that I am in the right place to learn.

    I would have to say it's worth- for the most part- everything that you end up having to pay for. The faculty aren't simply amateurs, but actual people who've worked in their professional field outside the world of teaching and mentoring the students, so their experiences are the real deal. The school really makes sure the students get a head start into their dream career the best they could, then again the rest is up to the student themselves.

    All of the current students I am surrounded with greatly look up to their famous and professional instructors. All of these successful instructors tell the students that the hardest thing they ever did in their life was attend and graduate Brooks Institute of Photography. But, they also say that all the hard work and possibly not even graduating will pay off if you are one of the few that do graduate; huge benefits.
