Alright so in 2 years, I am either going to go to study film in Toronto, which would mean moving away, or going to a local University to study film.
Firstly, the school thats in Toronto only accepts about 65/1000 applicants, so it's pretty tough to get in. In addition to an application they take your average from grade 12. This being said, should I take courses that will get me a high average, or courses that I will actually be able to use, and get me an averge...average?
Secondly, I know that a lot of the first year of film studies doesn't revolve around shooting and editing, but I like to be prepared. Looking at some camcorders I decided that it would be better for me to get an HD camcorder so I can easily edit on my computer. Would it be better to buy online, or at a BestBuy? I'm eyeing a Sony HD Camcorder for 1500 at BestBuy at the moment.
Lastly, anyone here go to film school? I know this is a big choice to make and I want to here some opinion from real people. Thanks if you read this far.
