In July 2018, Mt Albert Grammar School took to the Hollywood Hills to discover the secrets of the movies. The tour told the stories of Paramount, Warner Bros and Universal Studios and gave students an appreciation of the variety of artists required to bring a scene to life. They were even given the chance to call the shots with a masterclass led by international writer/director James Rowe.
The tour was rounded off with VIP tours of the Oscars’ Dolby Theatre and Hollywood’s famous Chinese Theatre, and visits to community media centres Echo Park and the Paley centre. This adventure was a unique opportunity for tomorrow’s industry professionals and left every student inspired and buzzing from their 10 days in LA.
