This observation begs the question as to whose films/videos are being
created by this hands-on experience.  University-level film school is
presumably more than a technical experience.
Yet there are schools (several of the really big ones) where a few stars
get to write or direct a film/video while the lesser beings serve as
their crews with plenty of "hands-on access."
