The previous American Academy of Arts site has become “old school.” Thing is, we’re “new school” and must update accordingly. While we’ll be rolling out the new site 3rd quarter of 2013, that doesn’t mean we’ll not continue featuring some terrific hands-on educational, transmedia production events.

Next up, Hollywood casting director and talent manager Stanzi Stokes will offer an intensive four-day acting workshop for children and adults in San Diego, July 10-13, 2012. The casting director for such hit films as “The Terminator” (Arnold Schwarzenegger breakout roll), “The China Syndrome” (where she discovered Wilford Brimley); “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” (where she discovered Keanu Reeves), the television series, “The New Adventures of Lassie” (where she cast the young Leonardo De Caprio in his first film or television role) and many more, Stanzi has worked with such industry directing giants as Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, and Robert Zemeckis.
