ScreenSpace works with industry leaders from the film, TV, and new media world, who have a strong commercial interest in the future of the screen industry.
Industry leaders brief students at the start of each semester; listen and give feedback on their pitches halfway through the semester, and respond to their completed films and projects at the end of the semester.
The industry leaders involved in ScreenSpace courses changes every year. Here are a few recent examples.
“Twitter is what’s happening in the world and what people are talking about right now.”
