Alright everyone. I need some advice. I'm applying to a film arts program. I've met all the requirements except,
For Directors: a letter of application citing your goals in joining the Film Arts Program, and a video portfolio (VHS, mini-dv, or DVD) of maximum six minutes to which he or she has contributed in a key creative role of director, actor, cinematographer or editor. These will not be returned.
So I need some suggestions. I don't really have the best equipment for myself to film or shoot myself. I was thinking I could maybe make a music video?
Have you made anything in the past that you directed and feel represents your skills?
If it's your first time, something like a music video is probably a good idea. Bad acting in something like a drama or really... anything... could make you look bad. So choosing a genre that doesn't require sync sound is ideal.
