L.A. Film School to offer tech courses

Pfeiffer on as school's prexy

The Los Angeles Film School, specifically geared toward tech-hungry students, is set to open its doors this fall.

Taking over Hollywood’s historic RCA headquarters, the school, co-founded by past Universal Pictures prexy Thom Mount, will feature hands-on training emphasizing digital filmmaking. Course topics include cinematography, editing, production design and sound recording.

Students must complete four films to graduate.

Producer Carolyn Pfeiffer, currently wrapping “Third World Cop” for a summer release, has just signed on as the school’s prexy. Pfeiffer, also a regular instructor, will take a break from pic production to focus on building the school’s curriculum.

“We’ve interviewed a lot of excited people from the industry,” Pfeiffer said. “And we’re confident that we’re going to have a first-rate faculty.”

The school’s advisory board includes two-time Oscar-winning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski, multiple Academy Award-winning production designer Richard Sylbert and directors Amy Heckerling, Phillip Noyce and Alan Rudolph.

Other co-founders include Paul Kessler and Vancouver Film School’s Bud MaLette.

The school is accepting applications. For more information, call (877) 952-3456.
