I am so so glad I went to a small state college. I read about
schools indoctrinating students and refusing to listen to other
points of view and I'm horrified, that was not my experience at all.
We were encouraged to disagree with our teachers, if you could back
up your point they'd listen.Part of it, I suspect, is the program of
study, in film and video if it looks good it is good. Broke a rule
but got away with it? Awesome, good for you. Break a rule and the
finished product sucks? Back to the drawing board. The other nice
thing was that failure is just a learning experience that makes your
next project better, nobody is perfect the first time and because of
that we were encouraged to experiment which then made you better.
The kids in more "conventional" fields of study hated us. I had one
design class where for a month we worked with crayons. Yeah crayons.
You go out and try to make a crayon drawing that doesn't look like a
crayon drawing and tell me how easy it is...
Tain't so anymore.
