Colette Sims at 951.659.2171 x2345 or csims@idyllwildarts.org

Film & Digital Media

The Film Department is founded on two basic principles: story and collaboration. We want our Film students to become socially relevant story tellers, educated and practiced in both classic and modern cinematic technique in the various disciplines of filmmaking. Through the study of these artistic and technical skill sets, students will develop artistic identities and a collaborative creative spirit. Classes and workshops include study and mentoring in screenwriting, producing, directing, production design, cinematography, editing, post-production, and advanced equipment (dolly, Steadicam, jibs, etc.).

  1. An essay (2 to 4 pages) about a life-changing moment: We all experience myriad life-changing moments, some big and some small. Some represent drastic change in our lives, while others represent subtle change, but all are significant. Tell us a story about something that happened to you, or something you witnessed, that had a profound impact on your life. The story must be submitted in prose format and should be 2-4 pages long.
  2. A creative writing sample that you have written in the last year. If you don’t have one already written, write a new piece. This cannot be the same as your story about a life-changing moment; it must be a completely different piece of work. Acceptable formats include screenplay, play, short story, poem, and even stream of consciousness.
  3. A short video. All kinds of people are in the film business—outgoing, shy, loud, soft-spoken, flamboyant, reserved. No single personality or personal style is best suited for the profession. With the multiplicity of career choices in the industry, any type of person can find a niche. Keep this in mind and introduce yourself to us. Record a 3-5 minute monologue or narrative (starring yourself!) on the topic, “Why I Want to be a Filmmaker.” This should tell us why you are motivated to be a filmmaker, but in a creative and fun way. It should be an imaginative reflection of who you are.
  4. Optional: visual art in the form of photography, film, video, performance piece, paintings or sculpture, a creative website (including photographs of your work), a creative Instagram account. . . anything that helps us know more about you as an artist/designer.

Theatre

The Theatre major offers concentrated pre-professional training. Training is Stanislavsky based and incorporates self-use techniques to guide students toward greater self-awareness and knowledge of the potentials of their own resources. The program offers disciplined training as exemplified in conservatory theatre training programs on the college level. Students declare an area of concentration in acting, musical theatre or theatrical design/technical theatre at the time of admission (or in their junior year). The curriculum includes classes in acting, mask characterization, Shakespeare, stage combat, stage movement, music fundamentals for musical theatre, acting for the camera, improvisation, scenery and costume design, stage management, musical theatre repertory, voice and diction, lighting and sound fundamentals, class voice and drafting for the theatre.

We strongly recommend that candidates audition during their campus visit. If a live audition is not possible, students must submit an American format DVD or provide an online audition on a site such as YouTube containing the following:

For specific questions regarding the Theatre Admission Process, please contact:
Colette Sims at 951.659-2171 x2344 or csims@idyllwildarts.org

Visual Arts

The Visual Art major emphasizes the practice of studio art by helping students develop a sensibility and commitment to the hands-on, experiential process of art making. Students are exposed to a variety of ideas, methods and materials to promote an expansion of their visual literacy. Students are also asked to enter into a critical and analytical investigation of the meaning and practice of studio art. All courses supplement studio practice with study of the historical, cultural and philosophical backgrounds of various periods and styles. The department also works to have students understand that art is a way to think critically and creatively about the world in which they live. The emphasis is on small classes and one-on-one interaction with a diverse, professional faculty.

Applicants must submit a portfolio of a representative number of works (approximately 10-20 pieces) that embody their own work. All submitted work must be the candidate’s original work and not in the Anime or Manga style. No modified or altered pieces will be accepted. Each piece must include a description of the type of project and/or title, description of mediums, and size and date. Images of art works should be submitted via email, on a CD (no more than 200 dpi) or as digital photo images of work in a bound folder.

Please note if you submit a portfolio via email: we have an allotted space of 1GB reserved for your entire portfolio submission, so be mindful of the size in megabytes of your upload. The dimensions (height and width) of your images should be kept to a manageable size to facilitate easier viewing. Please do not submit original works.

The portfolio should include approximately 5 drawings and/or paintings from direct observation of an object (not from photographs) and 5 works that investigate a specific theme or conceptual idea. This can be from any medium as long as the works suggest a consistent investigation of your idea. If an interview is not possible, the following questions must be answered:

  1. Describe your beliefs about the role of the artist in today’s world.
  2. What do you expect to gain from your experience at Idyllwild Arts?
  3. Do you intend to pursue visual arts in college and/or as a career?
  4. Describe some of your previous experience with visual arts classes, projects, summer programs and/or media you have an interest in.
