This past weekend, nearly 200 high school students spent the day on Warner Bros.’ Burbank lot immersed in the company’s first-ever WB Studio Day. The gathering was an opportunity for those participating in the WB First Cut program and interested in production careers to engage more deeply with the studio and gain insight into various career pathways the entertainment industry has to offer. Through a partnership with the Los Angeles Unified School District and nonprofit Ghetto Film School (GFS), WB First Cut provides filmmaking curriculum, skills and expanded industry opportunities to high school students. Now in its third season, the program first launched in 2018.
Their lunch break also included a nonprofit resource fair, giving students the opportunity to engage with organizations like Film2Future, Hollywood CPR, National Association of Latino Independent Producers and NewFilmmakers Los Angeles, which provide education and training opportunities beyond the classroom experience.
