about Us

At the School of Stage and Screen, we start with the story. 

Storytelling is the basic skill that ties all the others together. That is what the most successful filmmakers have in common.

From screenplay through post-production, fiction or non-fiction, we use technology in service of story as students get hands-on experience on our sets and film stages and in our Avid-equipped editing rooms.
