Stephen Mitchell to give free seminars to actors...

Stephen Mitchell will be giving free seminars to actors, writers and directors about the formation of a new film and television repertory company. Members accepted into the group will receive training, management, PR and branding assistance in addition to taking part in the films and the tv shows produced by the group.

From 1980 - 2001, Stephen ran a movie-making company in Hollywood consisting of over 125 actors, writers and directors. The actors, writers and directors of this group were used in his 12 feature films and over 1000 televised one-act plays. In 1985, he launched his cable TV series (Interview). The series, lauded by critics, attracted a cult following that included Oscar, Emmy, Peabody and Grammy winners. It attracted buyers for Stephen's ideas and a first-look deal for him with TriStar Pictures. Marlon Brando, Adrian Lyne and Bob Rafelson were among the fans of the show. Please see: http://sminterviewseries.blogspot.com/ for more information. (Interview), along with others, was a series produced by Stephen for the actors in his group who found that their careers were suddenly in gear and the films and shows produced by the group were attracting attention from mainstream Hollywood and critics alike.

Stephen created one of the first web-based soap operas called Confessions. It is a good example of the type of show Stephen wants to produce with the group that will be forming. See the Confessions trailer at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdxMH6n-fBM

Stephen's concept of independent filmmaking and television production means that one can participate in a company making professional products for a worldwide marketplace. The activity depends upon the effective branding and skills of dedicated group members.

Some recent comments about Stephen's approach:

"Inspirational, informative and thought provoking. I feel like it gives me an advantage -- already more prepared, better understanding and confident." J.R

"An 'out of the box' insight of the industry from the inside!" Renée C

"This seminar is deep!" Amy X

"It's like coming home and rediscovering the you you left behind." Toni C
