Hello, I am currently a senior undergrad and thinking about pursuing an MA in Cinematography, or perhaps Film Production/Editing, in a couple of years. I'm interested in pursuing Documentary or Independent film.

I have some questions.

1. I've been looking at some film schools in the UK and Canada (I'm not very interested in schools in the US) but I am not sure where I would like to go yet. Are there other countries that have good film programs?

2. I know that portfolios vary from school to school, but what kind of videos/films should you have in a good portfolio? I have a couple videos from previous film courses and my own work such as commercials, promotional videos, and 5 minute shorts. I'm taking a video production independent study next semester and I need some ideas on what I can work on to prepare for this.

Thanks!

Hello, here's an outstanding cinematographer Natasha Braier, maybe her story will help you in choosing a film school.
