The Video Academy of Burbank will feature the work of Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas and Woody Allen in upcoming classes to introduce new students to the art and craft of filmmaking.
Spring classes begin Monday, Feb. 6, at the academy, which is operated by Warner Bros., Los Angeles County's Regional Occupational Program and the Burbank Unified School District.
Students at the school study film history and analysis as well as writing, directing, cinematography and production topics. They work on several individual projects throughout the semester, including silent videos, video biographies and a 30-minute short film.
Keeping up with the times, the academy has also added a course in Talk Show Production.
