The SUCCESS OF OUR ALUMNI SAYS IT ALL
FOUNDED IN 1971
The mission of our non-profit 501 (c) (3) educational organization is, to provide the opportunity for people interested in working in the entertainment business to connect with and learn directly from actual working professionals, not teachers, who have achieved substantial success in the industry. We remain dedicated to the legacy of Gary Shusett to keep alive, for decades to come, a similar platform where hundreds of successful writers, directors, producers, actors, musicians, and others have already come to “pay-it-forward” by generously sharing their experiences, advice, and hard-earned wisdom with newcomers who share their passions.
CLASSES OFFERED AT SHERWOOD OAKS FILM SCHOOL
For almost half a century, we have offered one to four day seminars where people learn and meet Hollywood professionals. We open our contact lists to you. No where else in the world is there an opportunity for this unprecedented access for such a small investment of both time and money.
MEET SOME OF OUR FAMOUS ALUMNI AND TEACHERS AT SHERWOOD OAKS
Mr. Stallone wrote Rocky while attending courses at Sherwood Oaks. We were fortunate enough for him to come back and speak at Sherwood Oaks and to be among our famous alumni. Although best known as an actor, he is an avid writer and taught a writing class for Sherwood Oaks. He does his best to write everyday even if it is two words – FADE IN.
Familiarity creates recognition. Attend seminars often, and become known!
Questions? -Write us.
It’s very important if you are at all interested in attending a Sherwood Oaks class that we have your email and contact information. The way the classes work at Sherwood and due to the high professional level of teachers we get to teach here, our classes are almost always at the last minute, …withing 3 weeks of deciding to have a class. The professionals that we get just cannot commit earlier than this because of their hectic schedules, so we try to work around their schedules. This does not give us a lot of time to see who is interested in attending a class once we decide to do one, so if you think this is something you want to do, it’s IMPERATIVE you give us your email and contact information so that we can reach you easily when we do schedule a class. When we schedule a class, we will send out an emailing to EVERYONE on our list. So, it’s up to YOU to get on our list.
