    Add/drop for students advancing to 2nd term won't be processed until Friday of week 12 (December 3). According to Enrollment Services, even if we turned in the form early, we don't have priority over other terms [not even if you're in student government]. Good luck!

    I have two work study jobs but I still haven't earned my allotment for the term because I'm only working 8 hours a week. If I did that the whole term, maybe... Considering the socializing going on with some illu girls in the prop room, I'd recommend that. I've seen the library assistants at the checkout counter have some free time to draw in a sketchbook and read...

    Thanks for the replies Jia and jellybean. Our Student Guide for the day, Ari (sp?), mentioned night workshops to me after our tour. He said that they're not 'official' classes as there's no enrollment, but I can still get course credit depending on the class I take.

    Actually poly_cube, you may consider working as a Studio Extra at feature films and TV Shows. All you do is sit on your ass and keep quiet. When the director says "action" you get up and walk around or pantomime that your talking. You can bring whatever you want with you as long as your available to be on set all day.

    For Non-union workers, you get minimum wage, but you get paid $54 regardless if you work 8 hours or 3 minutes. A lot of studio sets go into overtime (and double-overtime), 10-12 hours of sitting is about average. If you manage to get into the Studio Actors Guild (union), your pay doubles, plus you get pay increases for changing wardrobe, using props, being around people that smoke for a scene (no joke, its labeled "+smoke" and is another $15-$30). And more importantly, all of your food is catered. I repeat, You do not bring your own food to set, Studios are required to feed everyone that works on set.

    I was doing this until I got my job offer today, but may go back to it when I go back to school and cannot continue working my regular job.

    You mean getting studio credit from workshop pieces included in your scholarship portfolio or do you mean that by going to workshops you'll get automatic credit?

    He said that depending on the workshop, you would get credit for Studio Classes, at least I'm pretty sure it was Studio credit. And he said the workshops are about $700 - $900. But I haven't researched, i.e. gone to their website to check it out, yet.

    Oh, I get it now. You're referring to ACAN, not workshops. Yes, those evening classes that are marked as transferrable will pass on the credit. I've done that for the Modernism class. If you don't want to commute to the campus I'd also recommend the online Design 1 class.

    One word. Karaoke.

    "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed, The world in arms is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from an iron cross."

    ...I have a sketchbook?

    Dear god no!

    Thanks for the suggestion jellybean and will. I used to work at a pet clinic (veterinarian technician), which was a great job that kept you busy; however, there was no time to draw or anything. Although now I have this dream job (antique store manager) where I basically just draw or read all day. Naturally you have to keep an eye on the store but at most only 10 customers come in a day.

    Although I donít know about the studio extra idea will. Since I imagine you would need a car to get to the production shoot (and you certainly canít pick the production dates to do the shoot) and being the dashing young fellow like myself, Iím not sure they would pick me up in the Ferrari I would most likely demand.

    Huh, I thought I replied to this part. Anyway, I used to have a classmate who was a film major at Chapman. He'd be at shoots at 4:00 a.m. then head to our morning class afterwards. Ehh. That kind of schedule probably wouldn't work for most people but if you're super, there you go.
