    Great for these types of students

    Film, Gaming, Recording (music industry)

    Tips for prospective students

    I would definitely suggest that you check out the campus at both the open house (all access tour) and one of their daily tours.

    Bang for the buck

    Everybody here has had or is still in the industry they are teaching about. The teachers are professional and helpful to everybody. Top of the line professional equipment all over the school.

    Will enjoy being here

    The staff here are really great! They're fun, easy to talk to, and are willing to help students whenever they may need it.

    Will learn a lot

    What to do for fun

    you can do everything you would do from wherever you happen to be from and then some. Amusement parks, beaches, dining, concerts, movie premiers, etc.

    Food and Dining

    You cant walk ten steps without finding a place to eat. Los Angeles/Hollywood is full of variety dining experiences.

    Dorm Life

    They have a beautiful location for an apartment complex they work through. It's just a little difficult to get in.

    Academic Rigor

    They are widely known and one of the three major film based colleges in the area.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you tour your school campus. Just like having to interview in person for a job, you need to see your school yourself before you can make a decision. Also, get as much taken care of before your start date as you can.

    In three sentences

    It's a highly active and entertaining area with a great school that provides quality education with hands on experience. A little expensive but I'm sure will be worth it with the projects you will leave with in the end.

    Campus Safety

    Very safe campus. We all have ID's that allow us into the building and unlock doors for us to get around. Then there's security to make sure people don't enter the school who dont belong there.

    Clubs and Activities

    Guilds for literally every aspect of Film, Video Game design, Animation etc. And you can learn so much more and network.

    Bang for the buck

    It's an expensive school but if you are dedicated. The sheer number of contacts and networking will help propel your career so it's worth it in my opinion. Job placement would be nice, but not realistic, since nothing is handed to you in Hollywood.

    What to do for fun

    LA FILM is located 1 block from Vine and Sunset. Party central. So many clubs not to mention all the surrounding areas. This is Hollywood after all.

    Food and Dining

    The school is in the heart of Hollywood, there is a LOT of great food.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms here, but there are lots of apartments in the area from Hollywood BLVD to Sunset and all the surrounding areas.

    Academic Rigor

    The schedule is busy. But totally worth it. Most classes are 6 hours a days with only 2 classes. Other days just one, three hour class. Sometime we go to class on weekends.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you come here prepared to work, learn, and read. It's so much fun here, but a lot of hard work. Since you work with industry professionals you really learn the nuts and bolts of Hollywood, and it's not all glitz and glamor, but it's very rewarding. The networking here is amazing since the school really focuses on teaching us to meet people, having guest speakers, and inter-program mixers. All in all I love this school but not for the faint of heart.

    In three sentences

    Very knowledgeable staff who work in the Entertainment Industry. The most update resources and technology are used as teaching tools with a lot of hands on experience. Different programs and lengths to accommodate anyone.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The most unusual location on campus is the mid term stages where you build and paint your set and shoot a short scene

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorms

    Academic Rigor

    It's very hands on, and there is little to know outside work except for a few months, most classes are based on attendance and participation

    Attend this school, if you are interested in anything that has to do with film.

    What to do for fun

    The school provides specific laptops for the student to use for classes and work in the programs. The laptop is yours to keep and, depending on your laptop, you get a Steam account with games. You can play with yourself or with friends online. The school also has events like game fairs and presentations.

    Food and Dining

    The school is near various restaurants and the school itself has two areas where students can purchase food. In addition, on seasonal occasions, there are food carts that come to the school. Though, the school also provides microwaves for students that bring their own food and an eating area for all.

    Dorm Life

    Their are no dorms. The school helps with looking for apartments nearby, though they highly recommend commuting or driving. If one drives, there is a student and faculty parking lot that they can use for a small fee.

    Academic Rigor

    The class all vary from each student and change monthly. Each class is made to help the student with their career choice. Each class will teach lessons that will apply real life skills they will need through homework and/or class work. Each class has their own time set, start to finish, but some are loose and flexible to help with students who may have difficulty meeting their requirements. Although class schedule for a student is on certain days of the week, the student may come any day to finish work or get extra help from teachers and faculty.

    Tips for prospective students

    For students looking into being part of the Film, Art, Game, or Recording industry, this is a good start. Students will get help with financial aid to acquiring classes and even help with how to get to school. Their classes will be set every month where the student will be able view. Each class are made specifically to help the student for their intended career path.

    In three sentences

    The school is a small, fast pace school. The school sets their standards high and help students learn the skills they will need for their careers. In addition, a student will be helped in applying for internship or applying for a job in their career field of their choice.
