Course contents

The series of classes will introduce the current American film industry with a wider focus on Los Angeles and New York areas to students. Our guests represent in detail the work of an independent producer, a film agent, a director, a PR agent in the field of the Oscar Awards, a game developer, a film studio executive or a TV company executive etc.

Guests invited to the class are active in the film/television industry and they are ready to share experiences and news in the field of their particular profession. The master class is offered in a real time via a video conference call.

Each student prepares a minimum of five questions per guest, which will be shared with lecturers and guests a week prior to the class via a shared Google document. It is necessary to send these questions in advance (and on time) because guests need time to prepare for the upcoming class.
