This 2 week prep + 6-week intensive lab is limited to 8 students and is run like a professional writers room.

During lab, you will develop and write your material at the demanding pace expected in a professional environment using Script Anatomy tools.  All classmates are required to devote outside class time to homework, writing and, at certain points along the process, actively participate in the development and story breaking process each week.  In a professional writers room, you must participate if you want to keep your job.  Working this muscle will benefit you.

Aside from helping you develop, outline, and write your script in 6 weeks, Pilot Lab includes writing and business topic lectures.  This unique curriculum provides invaluable preparation for your first staffing job.

Hey everyone, I’ll be doing a study session on MEAN stack for August’s JavaScript & JQuery LA Meetup. For those of you interested in learning Mongo, Express, AngularJS and NodeJS— you’ll want to check out this cool preview session.

Together, we’ll learn how to make a simple JavaScript app with Express, learn a little NodeJS, and then after experiment with the cool Angular.JS library along with some MongoDB. We can also check out some other cool databases (like Firebase) if time permits.

We’ll be meeting at the Mid Wilshire location of BlankSpacesthis time, from 7pm to 9pm. This is near the Miracle Mile area. Refreshments will be provided. See you at the meetup!
