Chronicle of the 508 Semester at USC Film School
USC School of Cinema-Television Production
Los Angeles, California
The World's Finest Film School
In the second semester of their first year, two students pair up to create two b&w, 16mm films,
each no longer than 5 minutes, 33 seconds long.
For the first, one student writes, directs, produces & does sound - the other
shoots & edits.
For the second film, they swap roles.
Colloquially referred to as the semester from hell,
the goal is to tell a story using images, without dialogue.
If students can survive the 508 semester, the rest is downhill.
pages have become surprisingly popular since search engines found them.
