Villanova on Set: A Film, TV, and Entertainment Industry Immersion Program in L.A.

An information session and Q&A panel for Villanova on Set:  A Film, TV, and Entertainment Industry Immersion Program in L.A. will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 8, at 4:30, in the ICE Institute's Idea Accelerator (which is on the lower level of Falvey Library).

The Villanova on Set program is designed to expose Villanova students to various facets of the Hollywood television and film industry during a six-day trip.  The goal is for students to gain an understanding of the culture and geography of Los Angeles, the creative and production processes, the importance of networking, and the basics of business and media management.  The second annual program will be held over spring break, from Feb. 28 to March 4, 2016, and it’s open to graduate and undergraduate students from all schools/colleges at Villanova.

The program may be of particular value to those who are interested in creative writing in relation to film, television, or other new media.
