The Royal School of Film and Television Production will be located in the predominantly Latin American Westlake district
American actors George Clooney, Kerry Washington, and Don Cheadle are jointly opening a school where teenagers will learn film work and thus try to introduce diversity into Hollywood production.
The goal of the school, which is set to begin operations in 2022, is to introduce diversity to the entertainment industry by opening the door to well-paid jobs for which there is no formal path.
-Our goal is to better reflect the diversity of our country. That means creating high school programs that will teach young people to operate the camera, edit and use the visual effects and sound and all the other career opportunities that the industry offers, Clooney said.
The Royal School of Film and Television Production will be located in the predominantly Latin American Westlake district.
Professors will have access to film professionals, and students will, in addition to internships and academic programs, also have internships.
The board will include Clooney, Washington, Cheadle, Mindy, Eva Longoria, and a trio of producers, and they will also cover 20 percent of the original budget worth $ 7 million.
Hollywood is trying to bring more members of minorities into its ranks since the 2016 #OscarSoWhite scandal. That initiative gained additional momentum last year after the Black Lives Matter movement sparked a broader debate about racism in U.S. institutions.
