3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: understanding that this school started out as a refresher training place for working industry professionals, explains the lack of SCHOOL type expectations. This school is very hands off, you can work on as little or as much as you like. You can audit as many classes (while a student) as you would like. When you graduate, you have 18months to audit any classes. This school pays you for any recruiting you do for them. The owner of this school also wrote a book that every student gets. It is a great book at showing how to get the job after school, to include networking, interviewing, etc.

Academic Experience: This place is awful. All of the A+ reviews are plants. They offer no training that you couldn't find elsewhere for far, far less. And the classes and teachers are so marginal, hours and hours of lab time (self-training) is the what you wind up doing. And while Mark Flannigan touts the lab time and access, VS has actually cut their late night hours. That makes a lot of sense. Much of their senior staff has left and moved on. They've reinvented themselves numerous times since 2010 (how many different times can they paint the walls?). There's just no reason I can recommend this school. These are the kind of schools President Obama issued a warning about (to soldiers returning home).

Overall Experience: If you want hands on learning and to learn above when all other film school are teaching "Theory" this is the school for you. Intsructors have the highest knowledge of all the latest versions in Editing and Motion Graphics. This School rocks. Out of my co-hort withinthe first 3 months from graduating, 3/4 are all ready either assisting as and editors or working as editors.

Campus Resources: We used to have free wireless, but they changed the password and did not give it to the students.
