characteristics, background, values, and/or views of the world have shaped who you are and
what you want to say as a creative filmmaker. We want to know about the kind of stories you
want to tell. Bear in mind that enthusiasm for watching films, descriiptions of your favorite films,
and involvement in the filmmaking process are common in most candidates. As a result, we
encourage you to focus on your individuality. Its our chance to get to know you better as a
storyteller and person. This is your chance to tell us your story.
The majority of the narrative statement should tell us:
About your own unique story. What shaped you as a person? What is important to you about the stories you want to tell? The goal is to get to know you as a person and as a storyteller outside of your resume and professional accomplishments. Wed also like you to touch upon the following questions in a meaningful way in your statement as well: Why are you applying for this specific discipline? What people/movies/art inspire you in that field? What is your experience as a collaborator in the filmmaking process? How do you see the film program benefiting your long-term career goals?

CREATE WORD PICTURES -That means using evocative word choices (use action verbs, use illustrative adjectives). Write in a way that paints a picture in the readers mind in such a way that would compel someone to engage in the story.
