Michael asks…

What are some brutal and harsh ways the government can take homeless people off the streets?

Here’s the deal. I’m an independent film maker from Canada, and I am currently in the script writing process of a film about a homeless man. It is a big issue where I live, and am hoping to get some financing for it.

Anyway, my story needs an antagonist. I plan on having that person be a some sort of mayor or government official who wants to take the homeless off the streets. But, I don’t know how they would go about doing this.

sorry this is such a weird question. Thanks in advance!

Once while I was waiting tables at a 24hr restaraunt one of our regulars was a retired cop. He told me that 30 years ago when they would find homeless people wandering around my city late at night, they’d pick them up for vagrancy and then drive them about forty or fifty miles away and drop them off in some random town and leave them.

Mark asks…

I plan to study in Canada, Finances?!?

Hi, I am currently applying to Vancouver film school, which is of course in Vancouver, although you’ll be surprised how many people ask me that. My problem is how I am going to finance my studies. Are there any student loans that would allow me to study abroad? I have looked into this and have come up with nothing because I don’t think the standard student loan will allow me to study abroad. I am ripping my hair out over this so any amount of help will be greatly appreciated! If you could also provide information about where to look that would be fantastic also!

Are you getting an actual degree at this film school (which could be accredited as an equivalent to a degree recognised in your country)?? If so, you should be able to access student loans from your home country (this is generally the case for people who study in foreign countries).

Chris asks…

can i finance myself on my own for Toronto’s york university film studies?

i live in Turkey and my life is such a mass. Because of the twisted education system and the screw up of my parents i ended up in a business school instead of being on my way to become a film director. i left that business school when i discovered a good private film school and moved there. i got two years of film education and two short movies of my own, (neither of which went to a festival or anything due to their lengths and technic problems.)

Now i want to go to YORKU. next fall but there’s no way i can provide the money for the school. but if i could find a scholarship or loan that pays for the school itself, i can easily pay for everything else (life expences, accomidation… )

i really really really need to get into York U. (or any other university film devision in canada) to put my life back on track, there’s absolutely no other way. (dont tell me about private film schools. it has to be an university)

what should i do? please help

John asks…

Is there any low fees film schools in USA?

Guys, I am sighing about my situation. My madness towards movies grows day by day. I am B.Sc. Visual Communication graduate and living in India. Years back I was trying to fly to Canada or USA for my film studies. Really I have no idea if I would get a college, it would be helpful or not. The reason is money.

I have no single money in my hand to afford for film school in USA. So which means I have to sacrifice my dream of getting in to a college there? How can I arrange my finance. I am staying away from my parents and I cant seek any help from them. What could be easy way to get into a film school and also a job in the US for surviving and also paying the fees.. ?

The London Film School’s MA Filmmaking course is designed for graduates and those with equivalent experience in creative practice who wish to pursue a professional-level training in all key departments of filmmaking. You work in small units on six film exercises, of which a minimum of four are shot and delivered on film (16mm and 35mm) and are trained around these exercises to deal with the increasing complexity and the technical demands of the practical work.
You also have to produce a Work and Research Journal for each of the three modules, reflecting on the development of your collaborative work, your skill base and creative priorities. You will study as a director, a director of photography, a camera operator, an editor and as a sound recordist, and you are likely to work, with supporting classes, as a producer, screenwriter or production designer. Although the course is primarily practical and vocational, it includes intensive teaching in film history, film analysis and other contextual studies.

LFS is an international film school (18% UK students) founded in 1956 to teach multi-departmental postgraduate filmmaking. It is one of the few film schools in the world to offer 35mm studio-based filmmaking exercises to students. Graduates include Mike Leigh, Michael Mann, Alain Tanner, Anne Hui and Bill Douglas. London Film School is located in the centre of London and this course is validated by London Metropolitan University.
