FSU Film School: Where Your Dream Can Become A Reality
by Kyle Rupprecht
Currently celebrating its 20th anniversary, Florida State University Film School is considered one of the best film schools in the nation, and has been recognized by the Directors Guild of America for its “distinguished contribution to American culture through the world of film and television.” Florida State holds the distinction of being the only film school in the U.S. with undergraduate and graduate programs that pay for production costs of student films–an important factor for many aspiring moviemakers in today’s economic climate. FSU also boasts a wide array of accomplished alumni, including screenwriter Matt Lopez (Race to Witch Mountain, Bedtime Stories) and production executive Jonathan King (Good Night and Good Luck, An Inconvenient Truth).
