well basically about year and a half ago i decided that i actually wanted to do tech as a career and started to look at UK based courses.
after having both a tour of RADA and Guildhall, i decided that these places weren't really for me; RADA was pretty good technically (strand
500, 300 desks), counterweight system
, tension wired grid
and various others goodies - but felt way to small (3 people a year on their LX course and small numbers on their SM course) and also it was only a dipolma and cost a bomb! Guildhall was again pretty good technically but unfortantley some of the building was quite old and foucsed more on opera and straight drama (which i enjoy but i prefer larger musicals and rock 'n' roll
so i kept searching for other courses, Central was another option but then a guy came to our school (a former student) to give a random talk bout gap years, but he also went to LIPA. I then looked at LIPA in much more detail and sounded like a great place, i was fortunate for them to come over to us and have an interview in which i was given an unconditional offer. And so about 2 weeks ago i visited LIPA and found it felt a really relaxed place (in a good way!) but also has a lot of good spaces, equipment, was a 3 year degree program and the city felt good.
anyone got any more questions feel free to ask!
sorry for the length of the post! but ya did ask lol :wink:
