Best path into production design?

2008-07-11 16:15:19 by designerwannabe

My dream is to get into set design for either theater or film (yes, I'm aware of the differences between them). I've found a lot of really amazing design MFA programs, but it would be several years before I could even get apply one. I just checked out LA community college's theater academy and they have a 3-year program in technical theater that I could literally start next month. Would I be able to get jobs with a good portfolio and a certificate from LACC, or should I wait awhile and try to get into a more prestigious MFA program (
like UCLA's theatrical design program)?
