In the past decade the number of film schools has grown dramatically!(no pun intended) From just a few there are now hundreds of film schools that range from departments within larger universities, to degree specific schools, to online programs. You can earn anything from a certificate degree in film production to a PhD in a specialized area of film, i.e. cinematography.
This rapid increase in film schools is due in large part to the technological advancements being made in the art and science of movie production. Equipment is cheaper and far more readily available with most editing and post production work being done by computer with specialized software. When choosing a film school be sure to weigh all of your options and choose one that fits your interest, personality, and budget!
