The Sherwood Oaks Mission
The mission of our non-profit 501 (c) (3) educational organization is to provide the opportunity for any person interested in working in the entertainment industry to connect with and learn directly from actual working professionals who have achieved substantial success in the industry, not just teachers or educators without practical experience. Sherwood Oaks Film School remains dedicated to the legacy of Gary Shusett who requested that the Sherwood Oaks continue with its giving of practical knowledge and know-how continue for decades to come. This is a platform where hundreds of successful writers, directors, producers, actors, musicians, and others have already benefited, to return to “pay-it-forward” by generously sharing their experiences, advice, and hard-earned wisdom with newcomers who also share their passions. As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization, We are comitted to keeping our fees as low as is realistically possible to just cover the expenses, in order that any new artist starting out may be able to attend.
