I was thinking about applying to the AFI Conservatory, I mainly have experience as a screenwriter, I've had 2 screenplays on the Black List's Top List, which leads me to believe that I have a better chance of breaking in that way. I learned how to write on my own, and i feel like I can get better at it. I'm currently 26 and my passion is really in all areas of filmmaking, but sadly I have no resources to make other short films. It's a frustrating affair, since I have no filmmaking friends who have the time and equipment. I feel like I need to network with people that have similar interests, because there's no way I can fund my own films. Like Orson Welles put it, it takes an army to make a film, I can't do it on my own.
I wanted to learn more about cinematography and make films with other students who are truly passionate. I feel cinematography is the language of cinema, the real challenge is transferring words into images. I already started an application for the 2015 semester, and I imagine it will be difficult to get in, but ti's worth the attempt.
