Required Documents

The couple things that are NOT optional

There are a couple of business permission things we need to get from your before the class. (and you believe you want to work in this industry, it might be good to just get used to this part, sorry, but it’s usually “par for the course” …excuse the pun) 

Yes, there are some required documents that go with the registration form, so make sure you dowload and sign them, and bring them with you or fax them to us ahead of time.

Thank you so much for your understanding in this matter. As you may guess in the Hollywood industry, the legalities are just as important as the actual content, if not moreso. That’s why we suggest start getting used to it now. 🙂
