From big dream to screen, we help creatives turn their passion into profit.
Whether you're looking to work in front of the camera, behind the scenes, or both, we offer top training in acting, cinematography, directing, producing, the business of entertainment, and much more.
Our award-winning instructors (many of them Oscar, Emmy, or Grammy winners themselves), give you more than a theoretical education. They show you how to get started, get the job, and make your mark.
We offer industry exposure and access in the form of internship opportunities and student screenings (including our UCLAx Film Fest), and networking and pitch night events.
The proof is in the pudding: many of our students go on to work at top entertainment companies, or become award winners or nominees themselves.
I’ve never experienced such an amazing and stimulating atmosphere as here in LA. The classes at UCLA Extension were really informative; this is not surprising since all the instructors are accomplished professionals in their own fields. Thanks to UCLA Extension, I can now make my first step in the entertainment industry with confidence.
