Now this may seem a bit soon to be starting a review but I figure that the beginning is the most important because it sets the stage for the rest of my time here. But after this I will probably only be doing a review of Full Sail ever 3-6 months. (which is 6 -12 classes).
So the first day was, well a bit lame. It was just registration and some sort of odd party thing for Full Sail to show off their clubs which could have been fun but it kind of felt like a science faire mixed with a club. But I met 3 Filmmakers that day and we already began working on a video for Film Riot's Monday Challenge.
The Second day they started some more interesting things such as workshops which was probably the best part of Orientation. We had some workshops on Goals, Adobe basics (Photoshop and Illustrator) and some Mac Basics (which for the most part I already knew). So we also got our laptops. Decked out MacBook Pros (i7, 16GB Ram, Iris Pro Graphics). It's pretty sweet and the battery (almost) lasts forever. Maybe I'll do a Review on that later too. Unfortunately one thing they don't tell you is that while you get the laptop in the beginning of your program, you don't get the software until the classes you need them in, which is typically decently into the program.
So my experience so far has been decent and it keeps getting a little better. But
