We can offer this exclusive level of access due to two major factors:
We’ve spent 30 years establishing close ties with industry professionals who trust us. They know our students are among the most committed and talented aspiring screenwriters. The proof is in our alumni. Past students include James Cameron, Dean Devlin, Matt Groening, Nancy Meyers, Sylvester Stallone, and many others. Also, noted writing teachers Syd Field, Michael Hauge, and Robert McKee, all began their teaching careers at Sherwood Oaks.
We’re willing to create sessions with severe restrictions on the size of the groups. It’s one thing to sit in an audience among 300 to 400 individuals. It’s quite another for a gathering of just 18 writers to interact with major players and often have the chance to present them with material. Even when we craft a large session, we make sure that there are opportunities for our students to interact with the people who will be speaking to us.
