The 70D looks very promising, especially for making films. However, I'd wait for two or three weeks to see more reviews.
Since you are going to school, its important that you find out from your instructors what their requirements are. Repeat this 1000 times
In our local school, the instructors first require a film camera and a 50mm lens. Then, in the 2nd semester, once you have learned about film photography and the basic underlying principles that are common to all photographers, they begin teaching digital.
They also have courses that teach the many other aspects, lighting, composition, processing (film and digital).
Video is a different ball game entirely, they might want you to have a camcorder or a DSLR, or let you use school equipment, you need to find out. The lenses and accessories you use for video can be mostly different too. Sound is 50% of the final product, so plan on a lot of emphasis on sound and lighting. Don't buy anything until the instructor tells you what is required. Craigslist is littered with castoffs that were not wanted or needed because a student jumped the gun and bought something that was perfectly good, but not what the course required.
