    I know it's late, but in a mess about which route I want to take at uni. I like art, photography and film. Photography is my strongest and could easily be the type of course for me to take, though as I'm interested in the film industry - taking a film course obviously sounds like the best option.
    Recently rented out a canon xm2 camcorder from my college to see how much I enjoy filming and how good the work is compared to my photography. I have done filming in the past, but this is just a last minute thing to hopefully give me a better idea.
    My main question though, was about the portfolio for uni interviews. As I like a range of mediums, I'd like to present my work through drawing, photography, film and possibly sound. Do interviewers tend to have equipment for viewing film if I were to take a dvd?
    I'd really like to leave a good impression for my interviews (if I get any :P), by showing a good range of work in an interesting way sounds good, but do you think it would be too much and complicate things if I maybe tried to much with trying to display lots of different types of work?

    What courses have you done and what are you applying for? Maybe you should look into degrees where you can try a mix of photography, film and sound as there are degrees where you can specialise in that area. The only courses I can think off at the top of my head is the Fine Art (Time Based Media) at Wimbledon and you can also specialise in this area in Fine Art at Slade School of Art at UCL. I think there's degrees called Contemporary Lens Media where you photography with film. I'm just saying this incase you were struggling to choose between film and photography, and wanted abit of both. Drawing can be used to help plan shots/do storyboards for both these subjects.

    I can't help you with the DVD viewing question however so good luck. :yes: Try and show work that is relevant for the subject you're getting interviewed for I guess, it depends on the course itself as some unis allow you to do other things in their course.
