Good schools to learn Cinematography ?
Posted 28 March 2009 - 06:39 AM
I would really appreciate your advise on good filmschools/universities that focus on cinematography.
I already have a bachelor in Journalism Studies and I did an intensive course of Filmmaking and Acting at the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles, but it's always cinematography that i love to do, so please tell me how you enrolled in cinematography.
I've seen a Masterprogram in Cinematography at UCLA, but it takes 4(!) years ! And also an extreme amount of money. (I'm from Europe, so I might not get a proper scholarship for these schools)
Or maybe there is another way than filmschool that got you into cinematography? I googled all my favorite directors and a lot of them actually never went to filmschool. rolleyes.gif
So please give me some advice. I'm open to schools everywhere around the globe! (Of course i like the US and the UK or Italy better than let's say Japan wink.gif )

I went to Columbia College Chicago, and I think it has a pretty excellent cinematography program. It's very intensive, and it took me 3 years to get through even though I had all of my general education credits done at that point. I really felt like I got a pretty thorough education, I shot a good amount of stuff, and I had classes with a great bunch of kids who were really serious and dedicated, and a lot of them are out here in LA working right now. It's worth checking out.
