you can most certainly do that
a) But when you are stuck and have doubts , whom you will ask.
b) Also think about your competitors who are guided by us who are expert in the domain of Practical Cinematography. Kind of guidance they will have and answers they will write in focus manner , you may not be able to write and their chance to secure high marks are much more Higher.
c) We are basically a film school working for past 14 Years since 2006. It is only in 2018, we also started helping students who wants to try for FTII .So we Understand what is required in various courses which can be asked in FTII/SRFTI ,JET, exam, as there is no prescribed Syllabus ! .
d) You can find sample answers of various questions which were asked in past 4 years to know what you are expected to write in a limited time.
e) Cinematography is technical subject and more than that at the end of the day is Aesthetics. So how to write those questions in specific way is tricky.
