I'm hoping someone can help me out here... I am interested in a career in video production and just was accepted into the Television Production major at my local four year university. They only offer 5 courses for the major...this seemed a little odd to me. How can I learn all I need and have the tools to make it with only 5 courses? I did some looking into it. I decided that going to a specialty school seems like the best thing to do. Except for the price, of course. Full Sail in Orlando seems like it would be the best...totally focused on your field and out in a year. I don't want to be in Orlando though. I want to be in Los Angeles. So I found the Art Institute in Santa Monica which offers a AS in Video Production. It looks to be what I want, but I have never heard of the place. I was wondering if anyone knew about it and if its any good...if the industry likes to hire people coming out of there, etc. I really don't know what to do. I'm 22 and have about 1.5 years left to get my undergrad if I stay at my local university, and I just want to get donnnnnne. I just don't feel like the education I would get here even compares to that of the specialty schools.. please help me! Brent.
