Learn every aspect of sit-com production by doing it in USC’s multi-camera TV studio!
Guided by an Emmy award winning sitcom director, every student directs two comedy projects and cuts them LIVE in a TV studio. You also rotate through 8 different positions “on the floor” and “in the booth.” I direct sitcoms for a living and my teaching methods come directly from what I see and do on the set. I wrote “The NEW Sitcom Career Book”, which we use as a guide to learn the rules of comedy and master the unique vocabulary used to get fast and funny results. I provide a roster of professional actors who will volunteer for your projects so you get to work with seasoned talent.
