In this 8 week class we will put together a plan for your potential career in film, TV, media or acting.

Class experience

Each student will learn a great deal about creating a career in the arts. They will create a plan that is flexible based on their current thinking and see how that plan will change over time. 
I went to film school and got a degree in Film and TV. I then went on to win international awards and loved what I was doing. I built a career in the media: wrote a movie script, produced TV commercials and acted in several films. Every step of the way I was an innovator. I love film and video and think these media have an opportunity to transform lives and create a better world. My goal is to help each student see their future and have a possible roadmap to get there. I look forward to working with your child! The reason I want to do that is because the film-makers and artists will create a better world, they are the voice and eyes of the people. The journalists, media artists and the dreamers who will help create peace, justice and love in the world. My goal is to help students discover their own talents and abilities while have fun and learning all about film and video.
