New James Franco Directing Course!

Submission Deadline is October 24th!

DIRECTORS WANTED!

In Spring 2013, actor James Franco is scheduled to teach a production class along with his business partner, Vince Jolivette.

Eight students -- selected during the fall 2012 semester -- will each direct a short film of approximately 10 minutes, based on the following premise:

‘The Labyrinth: a compendium of character-based original short stories, exploring the unknown, the unexplained and the unimaginable’.

PRE-REQUESITES:

-Graduate Production students MUST have completed CTPR 532 Intermediate Directing by the end of the Fall 2012 semester. 

-Undergraduate Production students must have completed CTPR 480 and one of these courses: CTPR 475, 476 or 477 by the end of the Spring 2012 semester.

-Non-production students may apply by submitting a directing reel AND be nominated by Everett Lewis, Directing Track Head of the Production Division.

SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES:

Production students who wish to apply should follow the same process for submission to 546 or 480.

-Grad students should submit the same reel as they do for 546, plus an additional 2 DVD copies – i.e. if you are applying for ‘The Labyrinth’ as well, then you would submit 12 copies of your reel.

-Undergrad students should submit the same reel as they do for 480, plus an additional 2 DVD copies.

If you wish to submit alternate material for ‘The Labyrinth’, please send 2 copies of the additional reel.

-The reel should be no more than 10 minutes long.

-Please specify if you are a grad or undergrad.

-APPLICANTS MUST SPECIFY IF THEIR FIRST CHOICE IS FOR ‘THE LABYRINTH’.  If your first choice is for ‘The Labyrinth', but you are not among the 8 directors selected for the class, your reel will automatically be submitted for 546 or 480.

The deadline for submission of director reels is October 24th 11:30am in the designated basket in SCA 404(the Production mailroom).
