Master of Frugal Arts


I've privately spoken to some actors on this topic, and now I'd like to get your opinion on the necessity of acting M.F.A.s. I believe it is valid to skip out on M.F.A. training, but I also believe it means you're missing advanced training in voice and movement as well as meeting new ideas from new professors. But I only say it's valid because some actors won't need those advanced movement and vocal techniques in the pursuit of a film career.

Do you think acting students should consider skipping M.F.A. programs to save money or pursue a career that doesn't require theatre technique? Also, if we see a trend develop, will that start to affect the quality of productions? Will film be affected?
