Chapman 1

Acting for Stage & Screen at Chapman University – Los Angeles, January 2018

About: The Australian Institute for Performing Arts (AIPA) has teamed up with Chapman University (CU) to present an intensive acting for stage and screen course focussing on technique. Chapman has been ranked 7th in the US the last four years running (according to the Hollywood Reporter) and their graduates have certainly made an impact in the LA industry. Chapman has been highly recommended to AIPA by several casting professionals, based in LA, who have hired their graduates and attended their performances.
The two-week intensive will be taught on campus by the outstanding resident faculty of the School of Theatre and Dodge College of Film and Media Arts. Students will take classes at a first year university level and must be able to focus and engage without disrupting, talking etc. Students will make content under the direction of the production team at Dodge that they can use for their reels. We are confident that the content, tutors, expected level of achievement, pacing and the intensity of the curriculum will keep actors challenged, inspired and engaged.
“There’s a reason Ted Sarandos, Steve Mosko, AMC’s Ed Carroll and even Hugh Hefner have sent their children to this school — and it’s not only because the Orange County campus is close to home. Chapman’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts is equipped with a $42 million, 76,000-square-foot facility designed by Bastien and Associates, the same firm that has built soundstages for Paramount, DreamWorks, Universal and Warner Bros. Say Matt and Ross Duffer (’07), who recently hit it big with the Netflix horror series Stranger Things: “The kids are smart and passionate. And it’s not too pretentious — our senior thesis was about a shape-shifting cannibal, and the students and faculty loved it.”
