“Our media…doesn’t pay attention to barriers.”
Less than four months after announcing the groundbreaking collaboration with DePaul University, The Hollywood Reporter has ranked it as #13 on the annual Top 25 American Film Schools list, which touts the top institutions “training the next generation of cinematic geniuses”:
“Thanks to Dick Wolf’s Chicago Fire franchise, DePaul students are getting plenty of on-the-job training. Wolf’s Windy City-set shows share soundstages with the school at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, which means that many students ‘get jobs before they graduate,’ says DePaul director Gary Novak. There’s also DePaul’s partnership with Chicago’s famed Second City, where some of the comedy classes are taught. In fact, DePaul is the only film school in the U.S. to hand out MFAs in comedy filmmaking.”
