We ask for a personal statement because we want to get a sense of who you are in your own words beyond what we can infer from your resume/CV. We want to see how your experiences, successes, and failures have shaped how you see the world. What ideas do you have and what are you curious about? What kinds of projects are you interested in making or re-making? Share something that you want us to know about you and how you explore and express your creativity.
You can write about anything that shows us what ideas you have and what you want to do. Don't be afraid to take some chances. Please note that you do not need to address all of the prompts above.
Length: Please limit your statement to 1,000 words or 4 pages double spaced.
