Dear Barbara,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the June 2010 launch of Act One's newly formatted 14-month Producing & Entertainment Executive Program.

The 14-month Certificate Program provides students with a strong foundation in producing and executive management for mainstream film and television to prepare them for entry-level careers in the entertainment industry that focus on becoming a producer or entertainment executive.

The program is similar to past Executive Programs, but offers more ways to connect. The summer begins with a two-week Producing Seminar, that can be taken as a stand alone class or as part of the summer long or 14-Month Program. The Seminar is followed by an eight-week Producing Workshop, including an internship at a studio or production company.

These new Master classes are open to Alumni as well as new students. Check out the website for further information.

Todd Burns, Act One graduate and co-founder of MPower Pictures says, “I have been a part of programs at UCLA, USC, and numerous other industry training seminars and by far, Act One’s Executive Program is the most thorough educational and inspirational program targeted to young professionals in the entertainment industry.”

Please forward this message to a friend you think would be an excellent candidate for the 2010 Producing & Entertainment Program. They can find more information about the program here and download an application for the 2010 Producing & Entertainment Executive Program here.

We cannot continue to provide expanded program offerings without your support. We ask for your prayers for Act One graduates, for those considering applying, and for the students who will enter the programs in June. We also ask for your continued financial support. We are just $4,000 away from reaching the $30,000 Matching Board Grant.

By giving to Act One you help fund our new programs and train a growing community of writers, producers, and Hollywood executives who are committed to following Jesus through artistry, professionalism, meaning, and prayer.

Together, we can bring the Light of the World to the most influential industry on earth.

Grace and great mercy,

Dr. Gary
