OC Film School Alum Micah Fusco and Co. (Monoculus Films) made a web series called "Thornbrook," and they just announced that the series is an "Official Selection" of the Seattle Webfest and Hollyweb Fest. Our hats off to Micah and crew for working so hard on this ambitious project and for submitting it to Festivals. For more information on the project, visit: monoculusfilms.com.

Digital Filmmaking II, Intro to Editing and Cinematography, is a course where students get hands on and in-depth training in the crafts of editing and cinematography. This Winter Quarter 2015, students have put that learning into practice by producing their own short film titled, "Port Orchard, I Love You." Cast and Crewed by members of the class, students have been working on location in Port Orchard, WA to create this film in just three weeks. A number of Advanced Digital Filmmaking Students, local professionals, and Digital Filmmaking Professor Phil Wilson have been present to guide and supervise the shoot. It will screen at "OC Shorts" our Student Film Showcase, held at SEE Film Cinemas in June of this year.
We are excited to announce that our new Professor of Screenwriting is LA Writer/Producer Aaron Drane! He originates from Bremerton, but has spent the last 20 years working in LA as a professional Screenwriter and Producer.
In addition to being an industry vet, Aaron is also a great teacher. (He won "Teacher of the Year" Honors at Mount St Mary's College in 2010). His latest feature film, "Fear Clinic," based on his incredibly successful web series of the same name, stars Robert Englund and can be seen on iTunes and Amazon. We are excited about the wisdom, passion, and creativity that Aaron is going to bring to our students at the OC Film School!
