THE FACULTY SEMINAR

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2014 FACULTY SEMINAR
NOVEMBER 10 - 14,  2014 in LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

POSTMARK DEADLINE: AUGUST 1st

Educators have the opportunity to see how primetime entertainment works behind-the-scenes.

"I spent one morning listening to Jerry Weintraub's stories about Elvis and "Oceans 11", and the next hearing producer Jason Katims explain how he became involved in Friday Night Lights. One afternoon, we're on a private tour at Warner Bros., the next we're learning the cutting edge technology to create computer-generated images at Stargate Studios. We were learning something new every day. This week is a winner. I, too, would like to thank the Academy." 
Assistant Professor of Journalism
