A film school for underserved communities will be set up in fall 2022, all thanks to Kerry Washington, George Clooney, and others. The Roybal School of Film and Television Production hopes to provide students with academic education, access to well-known storytellers and industry legends from Hollywood. This school will also provide students with internship initiatives.
According to George Clooney, they are all doing this with the aim of reflecting the diversity of the country. This means that setting up high school programs where young people can learn about cameras, visual effects, sound, editing, and other career opportunities in the industry will help create a better future.
Blanca Cruz will oversee the affairs of the school. The school will be starting with not ninth and tenth grade students and over time, it will expand to eleventh and twelfth grades. The pilot program will be expanded to more schools in the L.A area as time goes on.
