Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Acting Film Initiative

We invite you to join the USC School of Dramatic Arts in supporting a unique, culminating film project for our third-year MFA in Acting students. Our MFA Film Initiative gives students an opportunity to develop, produce and act in a piece that they have independently created and written as a cohort. "This project is all about the 'actor as entrepreneur' which is practically a required skillset now for a sustaining career in this field. This new initiative will give our graduates the expansive professional experience needed on the right medium to successfully transition into the industry," says David Warshofsky, director of the MFA in Acting program.
 
 To realize this MFA project, each year SDA sets out to raise $25,000.  These funds help support all costs associated with development and production of the film - from hiring a director and professional film crew, to paying for location permit fees, props, costumes as well as any out-of-town housing for the cast, faculty, and film director.   Gifts also help cover post-production costs, such as the hiring of a professional film editor and any modest event fees associated with hosting a film premiere every year.
 
On behalf of the USC School of Dramatic Arts (SDA), thank you for considering a gift in support of our MFA in Acting Program. Your support at any level will help ensure that we remain on the cutting edge and positions our MFA program, its students and the School to lead the way in this ever-evolving industry.
