Spring/Summer Courses Roundup, 2019!

Short Films with our students that have wrapped this year are: The Chilling Klaven High School Video, Selfie Games and Don't Move. Three of our courses produced these films: Acting for the Camera II, Film Production, and On-Camera Acting Improv (Children). ECAA continues the creepy theme established previously in our earlier films, and at the same location of the old school building.
All films have been shot in 4K, and two multi-cam. All of our films are released on our YouTube channel for actor/crew reels, but also, they air one-time only on Channel 31 cable (Inland Empire). To work on one of our films, please enroll into a course offering above.
