I've been looking into the AS/AA degrees offered from NYFA and LAFS. But I'm looking for some more up to date opinions (Theres a thread on here but its from 2 years ago).
I'm curious if these hold any merit, or if I should just make films. I've already made three short films (None too amazing, but some good) and I have more planned for the future.
If so, which do you recommend?

I just looked at LAFS and it looks good, but it doesn't give you as much information about the program as NYFA. It is also cheaper than NYFA. For the two-year program at NYFA it's $17k a semester and for an A.S. at LAFS it's $42k.
I'll post back again after I go to the open house and let you know what I thought.

I almost committed myself to NYFA until someone here told me about LAFS. Did research and compared both schools and it's obvious that LAFS is a better all around school. It's expensive as hell though, but i'm still going to go with LAFS.
If moving out is not a problem, I can suggest Full Sail University in Winter Prak, FL. They own LAFS and their program is amazing. Its not all peaches and cream though. It is very expensive and the hours are killers, their labs run anytime on the 24 hr day. The good things, all that money pays for absolutely everything, from books to film stock, tapes, a macbook pro laptop with all kinds of good software and all the training. You learn from people that know their stuff and if you dedicate yourself you can get a lot out of the school. Check it out and see if it might be an option.
