This policy aims to reflect the nature of the industry and foster the necessary professional practice to help ensure future success as filmmakers and screenwriters. The objective of our attendance policy is to ensure that, when students are employed in the industry, professionalism is their key attribute. Film students should learn what it means to be a film or TV professional, as this is as vital for success as possessing technical skills and talent. Regular reminders are sent to encourage students to think about their attendance and to take steps to correct it if they are dropping below 80%. Attendance at classes of at least 80% is our general expectation.
