Hello Gurus

I want to take a filmmaking course with an ambition to become a Director.
I am working in USA on work permit for short term. So, I cannot plan to attend year long course
or go for a bachelors degree in film making etc. I found this course in NYFA (Newyork Film Academy) offering evening classes
for 3 months.. ( 3 evenings a week and weekends). Though this course schedules best suits my situation,
I am not sure how promising this NYFA course will.
Can you please advise if this is a good instistute?
Any comments and suggestion about FilmMaking course in NYFA?

I absolutely understand the point that attending a course cannot make a good director but it is one's creative talent that makes difference.
Having said that, do you think if this 3 months course is too short to learn any techniques in Film Making to be a director?

Would you suggest me any other film school?

Your advise will be of a great help to me.
I appreciate your help.
Thanks a bunch
-Raj

I'm not a guru, I can't answer this. :P

out of curiousity, what is the LONGEST amount of time you'd want to spend on an education? 3 weeks is a drop in the bucket and won't get you much. It's one thing if it's a reallllly intensive, technical seminar on particular pieces of equipment, but if it's a "survey course" (which seems like what you are looking for) I doubt it will do you much good. Just my 2 cents.
