Executive Program now accepting applications !

We are very pleased to announce that the Act One | Executive Program is expanding to serve twice the number of students in 2006! And in a new partnership with Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business and Management, all Executive Program students are now eligible for continuing education credits.

The 2005 Executive Program has been proclaimed a phenomenal success by students, faculty, and employers. Ten of the fifteen students from this inaugural year are now working in strategic positions within the industry. These faithful future-executives are already influencing the content and quality of numerous film and television projects. Positions held by our alumni include a development executive, two talent agency assistants, as well as assistants to the presidents and the VP of development at a major production company. With three students returning to fulltime studies, the remaining candidates have secured interviews with high profile companies like UPN, Warner Bros., and Paramount.

This year, the program will run from June 10th to August 23rd. The application deadline is March 10th.

Act One’s rigorous 12-week Executive Program prepares and mentors talented Christians for executive careers in mainstream entertainment. Each of the selected candidates is matched with a summer internship at a Hollywood studio, agency, production company, or law firm. The program includes a challenging after-hours curriculum taught by working professionals in Hollywood.

What the Executive Program offers:

* A full-time internship at a Hollywood network, studio, production company, agency, or law firm.
* Over 100 hours of classroom instruction taught by industry veterans
* Excellent access to instructors, with only 25-30 students per class
