The Stonestreet Workshop's curriculum is divided into Sections I and II.
The Stonestreet I curriculum is an introduction to the art of screen acting.
First-time Stonestreet attendees take courses covering the many facets of screen acting.
Courses range from audition technique to script analysis to navigating a full production set.
Students learn how to adapt their previous acting training for use on the screen.
Stonestreet also immerses students into an independent film studio.
This empowers students with skills to produce and work in multiple areas of the industry.
Industry Showcases create regular opportunities for students to practice auditioning.
Students also make professional contacts that have typically created a work network for them.
For students who have completed Stonestreet I, the Stonestreet II curriculum further hones their craft.
Students learn to shoot professionally lit, directed, and edited original short works, from pre to post production.
Students also take advanced audition, career management, voice-over and screen acting courses.
Films and pilots produced by Stonestreet students are showcased in major film festivals around the world.
Short form projects such as narrative music videos and PSAs are often aired and compete for awards.
As part of their training, students also have ample professional work to create reels.
At this level students are allowed to produce and utilize the studio for personal projects.
Students meet and audition regularly for agents, casting directors, managers and working directors.
Each year, Stonestreet Studios produces a slate of filmed content with students in our Advanced Workshop.
These films range from shorts to feature lengths to pilots and web series.
They capture the spirit of independent filmmaking, from collaborative screenplay development to post-production.
Over the years, Stonestreet students have worked with many award-winning directors.
Such directors include David O. Russell, Chris Modoono, Eric LaPlante, Bornila Chatterjee, Alyssa Rallo Bennett, and others.
Students work with professional, trained actors from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts Department of Drama.
Students work with these actors in our studios and on location to bring these original works to life.
Many of Stonestreet's films continue to be featured in international film festivals.
Our films showcase our belief in the importance of the work we are creating.
Students find it extremely valuable to go through the actual experience of creating an entire film.
