Is USC a Good School for Film Production?

So what will the USC film graduate program in production teach you, and what won’t you learn? Is it a good school and is the tuition worth it?

Courses include writing, directing and producing. You will instantly enter into a group of other people who are also serious about filmmaking studies. There are plenty of mentors to push and guide you as well. This networking aspect is a big part of what your tuition pays for.

But they don’t teach you about the risks you need to take out in the field to actually get a film made. Also, the program is more geared toward larger budgets, even for shorts. So if you just want to make a short film for no or low budget then you don’t really need to go to all the way to southern California for college at USC.
