VARIETY RANKS THE L.A. FILM SCHOOL IN ITS EDUCATION IMPACT REPORT

November 18 2020 Photoshoot for Mask Up COVID initiative.

Considered an academic leader in the entertainment community for over 20 years, The Los Angeles Film School has developed a curriculum expressly designed to prepare students for the rigors — and changes — of the entertainment industry. During COVID-19, the program pivoted to remote learning, and more importantly, loaned equipment that allowed students to safely develop their talent without taking unnecessary risks or violating L.A. County’s stay-at-home orders. A robust career development team has also prioritized the Motion Picture Academy’s Gold Internship program to facilitate future learning and work experience for top students in the program.

START SCHOOL REMOTELY. RETURN TO CAMPUS SAFELY.

In-person instruction is temporarily on hold due to COVID-19 safety guidelines. All new students will begin classes remotely through our Learning Management System (LMS), Zoom and other video communication and web collaboration platforms. We have adjusted our courses so you will begin with your theory-based classes first and then move into more hands-on production courses once we are allowed to return to campus. This means you can start your degree program now without worrying about missing out on our equipment, production stages, editing labs and recording studios. Thank you for helping us stay safe!
