These are the most advanced arts programs available on the Encore campus.  These programs may have some camp fees opportunities outside o the regular program dependent on activities, but are the best kept secret and the best artist development value in Southern California.  Encore is offering two Artist Development programs in the 20/21 school year - PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE ARTIST PROGRAM and PROFESSIONAL FILM MAKERS PROGRAM.


The professional film program is a NEW artist development program specifically designed for young actors and filmmakers.  This is a highly selective group that comes from all over Southern California to take part in this unique filmmakers program.  It is a small program (up to 30 actors and 20 filmmakers each year grades 9 - 12) where young artists are given tasks and projects to complete that will move their filmmaking and screen acting career forward.  The purpose of this program is to develop actors and filmmakers that understand the mechanics of how to build projects and how to act on screen.  It is a complete four year program that is NEW in the 20/21 school year.  Graduates of Encore have moved on to small and big screen acting as actors.  Encore's film department has won awards all over the state and have filmmakers accepted to university film programs all over the country including Columbia and UNLV.  This NEW program will intensify their work and help prepare young filmmakers for a career in film.  Students that are a part of this program are enrolled in Encore's Hybrid academic program.  Their arts training and development is combined with Encore's pre college, A-G accredited academic programs.
