The Advanced Production Pool is a group of Cinema students eligible to apply to advanced production classes (scroll down for a list of classes). The Pool consists of qualified undergraduates, graduates, and foreign exchange students pursuing a degree in Cinema.
Applying to advanced production classes involves two steps. Please read carefully below.
I. STEP ONE: JOIN THE POOL
In order to apply to advanced production courses, students must first join the Advanced Production Pool. Applications to join are normally due in October for spring semester and March for fall semester. Deadlines are posted on this blog. Once a student has joined the Pool, this step does not need to be repeated.
Students may apply to join the Pool while they are taking the prerequisite course (CINE 310/316 for undergraduate; CINE 710 for MFA). Exchange students planning their study abroad should apply during the semester prior to their time at SFSU. Contact Scott Boswell for more details: email@example.com
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS for undergraduate students:
•Declared Cinema major
•Completion of CINE 310/316 with a “C” or higher
•Completion of two of the three Foundation Courses (CINE 311*, CINE 312*, or CINE 340) with a “C” or higher
•Note: You must enroll in any remaining Foundation Course(s) concurrently with Advanced Production Courses.*Animation emphasis students may substitute CINE 365 for either CINE 311 or CINE 312.
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS for graduate students:
•MFA: Completed CINE 710 with a "C" or higher
•MA: Consent of instructor
•Note: Graduate students have separate production electives which should be taken into consideration when planning a course load (CINE 755: Feature Screenwriting; CINE 761: Directing for Cinema; CINE 762: Advanced Cinematography; CINE 763: Cinema Laboratory & Editing)
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS for foreign exchange students:
•Cinema / Film / Media emphasis
•Established background in film or video production
•Procedure: Apply to the join the Pool in the semester prior (normally in October for spring semester and March for fall semester). Contact Scott Boswell for more details: firstname.lastname@example.org
II. STEP TWO: APPLY TO CLASSES
A student who has been accepted into the Pool must apply (or re-apply) to any advanced production classes of interest every semester. Individual course applications are due normally in November and April for the following semester. Deadlines are posted on this blog. Note: The application process is paperless -- all applications are submitted online via links on this blog.
Typically a student will be accepted into one or two courses per semester. However, if you only apply to the most popular classes (such as directing and cinematography classes), you may not be offered any classes. Graduating seniors normally get priority in competitive classes.
Your course applications must be accompanied by a Choice Form. On this form, you rank the classes you've applied to in your order of preference (1st choice, 2nd choice, and so on). If you do not submit a Choice Form, your course applications will not be considered.
All application links will be posted on this blog.
Final class lists are posted publicly on the bulletin board outside Fine Arts 422. It is your responsibility to check the lists and follow up on any pre-conditions stated on the class lists.
