= The Graduate School of Film Contents has disappeared and the Film Department has been created within the Graduate School of Culture and Arts. In the meantime, director Park Ki-yong, Kim Tae-yong and producer Kim Seon-ah, who were professors at the graduate school, were transferred to the film department of the School of Performing and Film at the College of Music. and Arts. . During the first semester of the 2021 Graduation Film Project class, Professor Taeyong Kim and I divided the classes into two.

-Candidates for the major in cinema (theory, directing, personal) take a history composition test in the practical test. What are the scoring criteria?

= Originality, logical completeness and the use of keywords are examined in three points. In the practical test, the first sentences, the characters and the spatial and temporal backgrounds to compose the story are presented. Three keywords are also given at random. The first thing I look at is the creativity of the story. Then we see if the story is completed completely from start to finish. It is also important that the three keywords are well integrated into the story. The scores are excluded from the highest and lowest points as the score may differ depending on the taste or point of view of the 5 judges.

-If you could give me some advice for the next interview test.

= Based on last year, three judges are included in the interview. Since the written writing in the practical application has been set up for the interview, first check whether the result is that written by the candidate. And we try to see the past, the present, the near future and the distant future of the requester. It comprehensively examines whether you have the will and ability to make a film with your own color and willpower, what preparations you have made to come to the film department, and what level of knowledge and skill you have. Also, after entering school, under the guidance of the teacher, he tries to see if he is a student who can make a movie while interacting with other students.
