Classes take place from 10am-5pm PDT. Classes are available individually, or you can bundle up any three and save $120.

Note: COVID vaccinations are required for in-person attendance

But there are more ways to attend the Core this semester! Now, each track will be offered online in a 12-week series, giving you consistent study on the same day and time every week. Purchase a complete series and save $120.

The Character Core series meets Thursday evenings beginning with Character Playbook on July 22.

The Commercial Core series meets Tuesday evenings, continuing with Commercial Styles on August 3.

The Narration Core series meets Wednesday evenings, beginning with Narration Nuts & Bolts on August 11.

Can't make an entire series? That's okay! You can take these classes in any order, in whatever combination works best for you. Bundle up any three and save $120.
