BAFTA Los Angeles is appealing to its members to lend their time and expertise to support of a major BAFTA effort to bring film education to an under-served Los Angeles High School.
For several years, BAFTA Los Angeles has been mentoring the students of George Washington Prep High School.
This is a magnet high school in South LA and our goal is to encourage the young students to continue their film education, and illuminate career paths and opportunities in the entertainment industry.
In addition to leading workshops and sessions, BAFTA Los Angeles conduct Masterclasses in Film and TV and organize annual film festivals at which we award students scholarships for immersive summer film programs.
our goal is to encourage the young students to continue their film education, and illuminate career paths and opportunities in the entertainment industry.
We are now asking for BAFTA Members who can volunteer for BAFTA FRIDAYS and help mentor kids in the classroom this semester.
The classes are just 50 minutes each, and are held between 8:00am and 3:00pm. Volunteers are needed for one or more Friday class, and are welcome to return as much as they would like.
Members are not required to prepare anything in advance; simply working closely with the small production groups on an individual basis is appreciated and deeply needed. The students are hungry for feedback and encouragement from true industry professionals, and the class teacher Darryl McCane will give you a warm introduction and guidance.
