Once we became introduced to Sneak On The Lot, we knew we had a partner for life. So during the past 2 years, over 40 Ladue High School students have taken part in the curriculum. Without a doubt, Sneak On The Lot has helped boost interest in our program, educated our film students immensely, and student interest in our film classes is at an all-time high!

I have 3 Seniors who just graduated and will be attending film school in the fall. Sneak On The Lot was a MAIN component of their successful admission into their chosen colleges

I would do this every single year if I could. Not only do you meet amazing and knowledgeable facilitators, you will make connections with other media teachers. The resources, contacts and instruction are invaluable. After 18 years of teaching, I have never attended professional development that has impacted me more. It was worth every second of my time.

The Sneak on the Lot Summer Workshop was the most valuable experience of any teacher training I’ve ever had.

After attending the SOTL workshop, I completely repaced my curriculum to match industry standards.

Fletch & Chet’s passion for filmmaking is unmatched.  It’s infectious.

I’m inspired to inspire my students!

The SOTL WS gave me massive street credit. Now I know what a real Hollywood-style shoot is all about…prep to post.  This experience was incredible and the most valuable workshop I have ever attended.

What is the summer workshop?

Sneak On the Lot workshops were created to assist filmmakers and instructors in the classroom and give them personal experiences behind the scenes of a motion picture.  This experience could then be taken back to their classrooms and be dispensed to their students.

In addition to participants working on a film in Hollywood, we provide regional workshops that are given in your local area.

To enable educators and students the best filmmaking knowledge possible, Sneak On The Lot offers a workshop that engages participants in the various stages of film production — From working on set with professionals to participating in various filmmaking workshops, Sneak On The Lot has a proven track record of thorough filmmaking training.

Interested in a regional workshop in your area? All you have to do is ask.

Regional Workshops?

The Hollywood Experience

A week in Hollywood and you’ll be ready to teach the craft of filmmaking.

In addition to learning the ins and outs of filmmaking Sneak On The Lot creates a three fold Hollywood experience for all our summer workshop participants.

Professional Mentorship on Set

During the workshops all the participants work side-by-side with some of the best Hollywood professionals in the film industry.  While on set, each participant rotates through all of the departments: Production, Camera, Lighting, Sound, Art, Make-up, Hair, Wardrobe and Directing.  By structuring the experience in this manner, the participants learn by doing while accomplishing the task together with a professional mentor.

Hollywood Facility Exposure

Throughout the workshop the participants will be taken to Hollywood facilities and given tours, helping them to understand the big picture of making movies.  The facilities visited vary each year.  Facilities visited in the past include: Deluxe Film Laboratories, EFilm, Soundelux, Todd A.O., Universal Studios Backlot, Warner Brothers Backlot, among others.

Hollywood Cultural Submersion.

In addition to seeing the filmmaking part of Hollywood Sneak On The Lot feels it is also important to see a little of the “Hollywood Culture”.  Almost every night the participants are taken out on the town to see a few different sites.  Some of the places visited are the Kodak Theater where the Oscars are broadcast each year, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, City Walk, The El Capitan and Grauman’s Chinese Theater among other sites.  In addition, the participants will usually take in a little music either at the Concert Series on the Santa Monica Pier or catch some of Los Angeles’ best jazz at JAX.

In-Class Training

From development to distribution we’ll cover it all in four days.  You won’t sleep much.

In addition to receiving a great experience on-set with real professionals, the workshop offers unique opportunities to learn the details of every phase of the production.  This is accomplished through discussions and practical applications scenarios that will enable the workshop participants to return to their classrooms and help their students to create better films with the resources they have. 

The discussions and classroom experiences are tailored to our audience and the particular project.  Topics and concepts are chosen from the list below and discussed to better meet the training needs of the participants:

If there is anything you need from us to fill out your funding paperwork, be sure to let us know.  We live for paperwork.

Can students come to the workshop?

We have had many students come to the workshop.  They receive a large discount and must be accompanied by a chaperone if they are minors.   Their hotel is not part of their package and must be purchased separately.

The schedule may change from year to year depending on the guest speakers and facility availability.
