NATAS Faculty Seminar: Day 2

Yesterday was another fun-filled day at the Academy seminar. In the morning we heard from three TV Directors talking about their paths and their craft. In the afternoon we heard from an Editor, Director of Photography, Special Effects Supervisor and Art Director. All were very informative and inspiring as they told their stories of how they started in the business. (The editor of the show Dexter told of inspiration from his college professor!)

Next, it was off to the famous CBS Studio Center for a walking tour. Studio Center began its storied Hollywood life as the historic home of Max Sennett's Studio of Keystone Cops fame. Today the facility includes 18 sound stages on 40 acres and includes three permanent exterior sets; New York City Street, Central Park and a Residential Street. But the coolest part of our adventure was getting to roam around the Hot in Cleveland set and the enormous CSI: New York set on the lot. (Complete with fake bloodied tools!)

We capped our evening with an Academy event featuring the Producers and Cast of the new Starz show, Boss starring Kelsey Grammer in his first dramatic role in many years.
