Silvana Gallardo John Gavigan Marie Matiko
The Camellia South School is poised to be the very best Acting School in the Country. Located in Paris,
Kentucky, it will offer classes in all aspects of film making. Movement, dance, drama, voice, speech, script
writing, technical know-how - all for the purpose of training people to earn a living making real movies.
Special guests will be flown in from Hollywood and New York to offer their expertise. An outreach program
will be dedicated to helping students in both rural and inner city areas.
We want to build opportunities for the young and the not so young to realize their creative dreams…as actors,
writers, directors, cinematographers and crew.
