    LAFS is more like a workshop with hands-on training.

    For all the information you need to and want to know, you should contact the school directly and they will be more than happy to speak with you about their program and your concerns.

    You have to also understand that no school or degree will guarantee you a job in the professional film industry. Most careers are built on networking, hard work, perseverance, enthusiasm, and passion. A bit of luck comes into play, but you shouldn't bet your life and career on something so improbable. Once you find a school that suits your specific needs, you should work to improve your odds by going out into the real world and interning or volunteering on actual productions. Find a student film, an indie film, or just a local production company that will let you be there to observe how actual production works. You may be carrying cases or getting coffee, but getting away from the protected school environment and into the thick of the real world gives you actual experience PLUS you'll be meeting people who may be able to help you achieve your career goals.

    "Film Studies" and "Acting" are both a waste of time for most students. They're never going to get a job in the film industry.
