A recent graduate of the Writing for Film and TV program, I was working in the oil industry prior and have three kids, so it wasn't exactly a piece of cake to just drop everything and follow a dream. I talked to the head of the department several times before coming (Michael Baser - very helpful and eminently personable), asking hard questions and realizing this would ultimately be a leap of faith. I don't regret it for a second. My experience was that the teachers cared deeply about us, the quality of our writing, and our ultimate success as professionals. I've been writing for years, but I still learned a TON at VFS - not only how to write, but how to effectively network within the industry and, most importantly, how to discipline my writing habits and structure myself for the actual business of writing. And I walked out with a wicked writing portfolio, with samples across multiple media formats from film to TV to advertising and beyond. But keep in mind, this isn't the typical post-secondary education-by-spoon-feed; it's real-world and intensely practical. You only get out if you put in. I can't speak for all departments, but the Writing dept runs a fantastic ship!
