Q. A student at the USC Stark Program in Producing wants me to write her a thesis film. Is it worth doing?
The USC producer program is probably the top program in North America, and of all the schools, USC is the most connected to show business. That's where the industry kids go. That means that the right sort of people see the USC thesis films. There is a lot to be said for having your name on a USC thesis film. Depending on where you are in your career, this could be good exposure for you ... I say go for it.
