When Columbia film students enroll, this is the experience that they sign up for.
While students across Columbia’s schools are frustrated with the shift to remote learning, film students have been hit particularly hard.
The American Film Institute Conservatory, a graduate film school in Los Angeles, for example, developed thorough guidelines that allow it to continue providing equipment and socially distanced film sets for its students.
When the pandemic first hit, Columbia’s buildings closed indefinitely, including the Nash Building, which houses the film equipment Master of Fine Arts students use for production.
Unlike other film production master’s programs, Columbia’s expands beyond business and financial skills associated with the role of a producer.
