“The perfect recipe for creating storytellers with an entrepreneurial spirit.”

“By connecting our students to industry professionals, studios, and the variety of film festivals, our students can see themselves creating stories for a wide audience. Their network connections coupled with their apprenticeship model of education is the perfect recipe for creating storytellers with an entrepreneurial spirit. So excited to see their model grow in school districts in Los Angeles.”

“Working alongside the students as they develop their stories, has helped me improve as a screenwriter.”

“Each time I discuss Creating Creators with another filmmaker I inevitably hear, ‘I wish I had that as a kid.’ Truthfully, I wish it too. Creating Creators provides me the opportunity to work with the kind of film mentors and be the kind of film mentor that I would’ve benefited from as a kid. And in doing so, by watching the students discover their own voice and working alongside them as they develop their stories, I’ve improved as a screenwriter.”

“As a teacher … [Creating Creators] provides access points to identify the talents, needs, interests, and abilities for all of my students.”

“Over the span of four years, my students have created twenty short films. They were the storytellers, the scriptwriters, the actors, the sound and lighting, the editors, directors, and producers. Creating Creators made this journey possible for all of us. Their creativity, flexibility, and teaching methods have made an impact on the way I teach in the classroom and provided different opportunities for me as a teacher to identify the talents, needs, interests, and abilities for all of my students. As a teacher … [Creating Creators] provides access points to identify the talents, needs, interests, and abilities for all of my students. “

“Creating Creators has helped me open doors to different aspects of the film industry. They’ve helped me expand my knowledge and skill set.”

“Creating Creators has helped me open doors to different aspects of the film industry. They’ve helped me expand my knowledge and skill set. They really care and want to see their students succeed. Transitioning from high school to my first internship was a challenge because of college demands and distance. Creating Creators knew this was a special internship opportunity for me, and insisted that I still pursue it. I never really felt like I was on my own because I knew that if I needed help I could just call them. That made the transition easier knowing I always have help.”
