Overall Experience
Lots of hands on film production knowledge. It was definitely worthwhile as it was not an experience I could have received at my home institution, and I met so many great students from around the US! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned so much about the practical aspects of filmmaking that I wouldn't have learned at Brandeis - Brandeis University View Entire Review
February 16, 2022 Busy And Fun
I learned a lot about the filmmaking process and Czech culture. It was worthwhile for me in the sense that I had a chance to explore an area of the world I likely would not have otherwise and picked up a lot of film experiences. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CET Film Production at FAMU
I learned a lot about filmmaking that I would have NEVER learned at Wellesley because of how shitty the CAMS department is and how little funding and resources are given to artistic or media pursuits at Wellesley (aka things that arent econ or CS) - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Pragueblogging
I gained filmmaking/production experience which was important to my hopeful future career. I also developed a passion for cooking while fending for myself abroad, and got to see cities that I had only read about or seen in films. A lot of what I gained from this experience abroad was not directly connected with the programme, an... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned about Central European history and culture and directed a short film. I travelled extensively, and saw places I might not have otherwise. This was definitely a worthwhile experience. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about film, Czech culture, American culture. I gained a lot of useful knowledge and experiences, and made a lot of memories and friends. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I gained a lot of film knowledge in addition to traveling to foreign countries and learning about Czech/central European culture. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I can't wait to get back to Prague. - Trinity University View Entire Review
May 22, 2024 Final Review
It was worthwhile. I learned so much about myself, how to work with people, and how to navigate other cultures. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I gained so many practical film skills that my school would otherwise never be able to give me. I learned the ins and outs of a 16 mm film camera and learned what is was like to work on a film set/crew. I fell in love with Prague and made the best friends. I want to go back to live in Prague after I graduate! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about traveling and even more about independence. I learned that I definitely could live abroad and not miss my family too much to the point where I wanted to go home. If I could do it over again, I would stay for a year. As soon as it was time to leave not only was the weather beginning to warm up, but I was als... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned how to shoot on film, how to more precisely measure exposure and work with light, the importance of film language (color, composition, etc) and how to work extremely closely with a group to develop and produce an idea from start to finish. The absolute best thing I gained were the friends I made and the new connections... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
The goal of my study abroad experience was to figure out whether or not I want to go to graduate school for film production. My experience provided me with a clear answer (that being, film school isn't right for me) while giving me constructive insight on what it's like to work with others and mediate differentiating opinions. C... - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned that I want to be a filmmaker and that I need to pay attention to my voice and what I want to say. It was good to learn the 3 act structure and a classical style of making a film (and experience some of the misogynistic attitudes prevalent in the film industry). I also had some of the best times of my life. The people ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Living in Prague taught me how to be independent. Although I loved exploring with my friends on my program, I would often take the tram by myself and go wherever I pleased on Sunday afternoons. Going abroad made me more comfortable with myself, and encouraged me to do things for my own enjoyment, and not with the intention of pl... - Johns Hopkins University View Entire Review
Past Review Chaotic Learning
Yes it was worthwhile in many ways. I'm glad I did it. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
This study abroad experience was absolutely worthwhile, I met many people who I admire greatly and will network with in the future. Basically, I am confident and equipped to make my own films. This program has given me the basic skills I need to progress further with my film career. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Past Review
My experience abroad made me even more interested to work in film, especially production. I learned some Czech and a lot about the culture, and overall I had an amazing time and met great people. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
