College admission grades?

I want to have the best chance I can at getting into USC, but I also don't want to need a 4.0 GPA and be taking as many honors and AP classes as possible. I want to be able to do things outside of school and such. Do you think I would need a 4.0 GPa and tons of honors and AP classes to get in?

BA vs BFA?

I'm looking at the USC SCA website currently and I noticed that there is a bachelor of arts in film production and then there is a bachelor of fine arts in film production. Can anyone explain the difference?

Industry vs Freelancing vs Indie directing?

Is freelancing the same as Indie directing? What separates these three? What are some pros and cons of all three? How do I succeed in each? And how do I switch from one to the other, such as switching from Industry directing to Freelancing? Will I have more control over the movie if I choose to...

Should I go to L.A. Film School or USC?

I have started to look into USC as well and off of its stats and the fact that it is a university, I can tell it's good. I'm just worried that I might be setting my goals too high. I'm pretty sure their Cinematic Arts school has a three percent acceptance rate and while I could prepare for high...

Double concentration?

I want to go to the L.A. Film School and major in Film Production but I would want to have my concentration on either Directing or Cinematography. Is there any way I could have my concentration on both?

Is it true that nearly 65% of all film directors only make 1 film in their whole life??

I recently read this statistic and it has shocked me. Am I doomed to only put one art piece into this world? The expectation for becoming a director is fame but still. I mean I want to make many movies and the idea of only being able to make one sounds completely hope-crushing. On the other end...

How can I make good movies without them taking me years?

My interest in filmmaking started with Quentin Tarantino. He is a genius and I love his movies, but his career has also scared me in a way. He has only made 10 movies and he has been making films for decades. His movie reservoir dogs only took like three weeks to write and yet it took three...

How do I know if film making is for me?

I know that I would enjoy it very much, but I know it could not be the only thing I do. And how do I know that it is right for me? I mean I would probably be good at it but how do I know if it's for me?

Need multiple opinions as this is really stressing me out. Input?

I recently considered getting into film production by attending the LA Film School and becoming a Director. I would probably be one of those directors who writes my movies and does the cinematography, but I have one issue: the idea of doing just one thing terrifies me. I would love to be a...
