About the Class:
CTPR 484 is a large intensive group production class where the practical application for producing a multi-camera television comedy Pilot is experienced. The class will prep, shoot, post and deliver a 30-minute comedy Pilot which is shot in front of a live audience in typical sit-com fashion. Students and faculty work together addressing the myriad aesthetic, technical, collaborative and ethical issues integral to making a comedy Pilot. The Pilot derives from a treatment that is pitched and picked prior to the fall semester and the class works closely with the CTWR 487 writing students who will create the final script. Multiple crew positions and skills ranging from Producing, Directing, Cinematography, Editing, Production Design, and Stage Managing are taught by Experienced and working Television professionals. CTPR 484 provides a unique opportunity at SCA to learn about and create Comedy Television and more specifically Sitcom production.

USC School of Cinematic Arts mourns the loss of the legendary film producer Alan Ladd, Jr. Laddie as he was famously called was an alumnus of the School, recipient of the Mary Pickford Award, which is bestowed upon a distinguished alumnus each year and most importantly a dear friend. The School owes him a great debt for his astute counsel on many issues as it related to our industry. In particular, it was Laddie who first suggested that the School train students in the business of film and it was this effort which later became SCA’s Business of Cinematic Arts program. He will be deeply missed.

USC School of Cinematic Arts could not be more thrilled that The Wrap ranked SCA the #1 film school in the country. Highlights included First Jobs, the Student Academy Awards and the Gerald A. Lawson Endowed Fund. We are very honored by this recognition.
Congratulations to De’Onna Young-Stephens who won a Student Academy Award for her film, Not Just a Name, which confronts the racial bias African-Americans face for creating unique names that don’t conform to European origins and might include apostrophes and dashes. De’Onna graduated from the Film & Television Production division in May. Here’s what she has to say about the winning the award and the impact of the film.
What was the inspiration for Not Just a Name?
I have a personal connection with name-shaming in America because I suffered from name-shaming as a child. I was also inspired by my friends after witnessing them correct others for the mispronunciation of their name. Witnessing that was refreshing and gave me a boost of confidence to speak up and speak out about the issue.
What has been the response from people who have seen the film?
The response has been incredible. I've seen people get emotional after watching the film. It feels rewarding knowing the film has touched people from around the world, and the part I enjoy most is hearing stories from others who have gone through similar experiences.
What’s it feel like to win a Student Academy Award for this very personal story?
I'm honestly still pinching myself because I wanted to win one so bad. I used to talk to my 547 directing professor, Mark Harris, about it almost every class. I was nervous sharing such a personal story, but I'm glad people are embracing it.
What do you want to do next in your career?
I want to continue writing and directing films. I am passionate about social change—films that urge the viewer to engage, analyze injustice and create the world anew—as well as films that push the boundaries of self-actualization, that tell stories about protagonists who are brave enough to ask the big questions about life, the world and identity. https://deadline.com/2021/10/48th-student-academy-awards-competition-names-17-winners-1234859470/
Congratulations to all NINE alumni who took home this Sunday!! So proud of all these amazing shows!
