Yes. He is considering the dub. Is it a good program?
Oh boy this question. What works for some doesn't always work for others.
On the plus side, we have a good amount of females, which I'm sure you know. There's the Cucalores Film Festival which he can participate in (google it). Interships(the ones out in hollywood and new york are super competitive, there's almost zero chance he will get this).
Also noteworthy, I think UNCW recently made it's first feature film that was made mostly by students and alumni.http://dontknowyetfilm.com/main/
I saw a rough cut and it was pretty good. By the time your son graduates it will probably improve so I would consider it and it beats dishing out the money for NYU or USC or whatever. Those are really great schools but there's a chance he might decide he doesn't like it down the road(especially since he's only 16).
Some people also learn on their own and many have been successful without ever going to film school fwiw.
