    Participating in an eight-week workshop does not a film school graduate make. It is just like attending a law school seminar and proclaiming you a lawyer. If the school did not award you an actual degree, you did not walk the podium on graduation, you are not a graduate. BellaNaija, please let us try to get our facts right. What the certificate says is congratulation on completing an eight-week workshop.

      check out what graduate means before you shade. graduation is not only about degrees and ceremonies. the industry is full of self taught directors etc which makes Dr Sid a grade higher given this first world academic experience. congrats to him.

      Thank you. Some Nigerian artists are so mediocre. If you want to study from a good school, go to a University. Take a few years ago and actually study your craft. New York University, UCLA and others offer great programs. I see all these artists going away for eight weeks and thinking they have learned something. If you want to actually learn something, do it well. This New York Film academy is ridiculous. I love Banky W and Dr Sid but c’mon!

      Have you been to the New York Film Academy? I have, and there are a lot of hardworking talented people in that school. What gives you the right to call it rubbish?

      Correction – *Ridiculous* but anyway, that wasn’t nice at all.
