American Academy of Dramatic Arts

13h  ·

As Founder’s Day approaches this Saturday, our historical look into The Academy’s archives continues.

The technological innovations of the 20th century gave rise to new avenues of powerful storytelling. As the conventions of theatre were adapted to radio, film, and then television, The Academy readied actors to play roles that would resonate across the airwaves and around the world.

With rigorous preparation in stagecraft that remained rooted in truth, actors at The Academy found themselves equipped to excel in every format. Whether they were working on the backlots of Hollywood or the stages of Broadway, Academy graduates were highly regarded for their professional training and distinguished artistry. As influential alumni such as Cecil B. DeMille, Spencer Tracy, Lauren Bacall, Kirk Douglas, Grace Kelly, and Robert Redford ascended to new heights, The Academy became widely known as the “Cradle to the Stars.”

Danny DeVito attended the AADA, along with many other greats.

We have the USC School of Cinematic Arts and the Dodge College of Film & Media Arts which are both training filmmakers here locally, and we have The American Academy of Dramatic Arts which is training actors and actresses here in Hollywood, we could put them all to work right here in Anaheim if the local business people put their minds to it, Anaheim could have a top of the line modern studio, and television shows and movies could be made here in Anaheim.

As the economy bounces back, then people need to be given business loans, etc, and some people can get together and open a new studio in Anaheim.

We have plenty of talented people right here in Southern California who would love the jobs, and it would be good for the local economy.

Salute,

Is it okay to yell "Theatre!" in a crowded fire hall?

New affordable housing is being being built for actors in Hollywood, and they will have space to train and perform, it looks pretty cool. And Annette Bening helped to make it happen.

I always thought that my apartment complex in Anaheim would be great for people in the entertainment industry if we could have a studio here in this neighborhood, we have industrial space here, we can have industry in this neighborhood. We could have sound stages, and movie equipment rentals, etc, etc, etc. I tried to get the San Manuel Native American Indian Tribe of San Bernardino to invest in a movie studio here in my neighborhood, but they were not interested. A little studio like Occidental in East Hollywood would be perfect here, and Disney and others use Occidental all of the time.

Anyhow, it is great that new housing is being built for struggling actors, and more needs to be done.

We also need to do more to foster local film and television production here in Southern California, and it would be nice to have a movie studio here in Anaheim.

Salute,

I am using some of my stimulus money to update my equipment, and I was not sure what kind of computer to buy and which programs I would need in order to write books, and movie scripts, and to be able to make movies, etc, so I sent an email to the film schools to find out, and the Dodge film school at Chapman responded. Here is what they said...

Hi Tony,

We suggest Dell laptops with an Nvidia GPU or Apple laptops. 
 
As far as software applications… for Screenwriting, we use Final Draft; for budgeting and scheduling, Entertainment Partners Movie Magic Budgeting and Scheduling; for editing, Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer and Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve; for Sound Design, Avid Pro Tools.

So, that is what the students are using at Dodge film school.

Salute,

Tony V.

There are a lot of homeless actors, writers, poets, filmmakers, cinematographers, etc, out there on the streets of Southern California mixed in with the homeless people, and so there needs to be apartment complexes for the artists who are homeless.

Such as the Palm View apartments which were set up by the Chase and Royal Bank of Canada and the Actors Fund...

https://actorsfund.org/services-and-programs/palm-view

And the artists can all help each other, they can teach each other, and they can support each other, and they can make movies together, etc. Where one man has a weakness, his neighbor might have a strength. Working together people can achieve much more than any man could alone, and we are social creatures anyway, we love Tribes, etc.

Having apartment complexes for artists makes sense to me, and for instance in this neighborhood, it is an Industrial Neighborhood, people can film movies here, and people can make television shows, and people can make music videos and television commercials, etc.

We can have a studio like Occidental in East Hollywood here in my neighborhood in Anaheim. (Also, the neighborhood by Occcidental in East Hollywood is a good, affordable neighborhood for poor artists.)

Here is a link for my complex in Anaheim, it would be perfect for homeless artists, and people could make movies across the street, etc. This is an Industrial Neighborhood.

https://villa-platinum-apartments.business.site/

We have people who have a lot of training, and education, and experience, some have won awards, and they are mixed in with the homeless people, there needs to be special apartment complexes for the homeless artists.

I had a roommate who was a studio executive who ended up homeless. He worked at Paramount, and at Universal. He worked himself to exhaustion, and then ended up homeless. He worked on the show "Family Ties" and he worked on other shows. He was a great person and he had a great life, and at the end he ended up homeless but my friend Lisa helped him, and he ended up as my roommate in a mansion in Anaheim, it was a nice house in a nice neighborhood. 

The neighborhood by Occidental in East Hollywood is a good neighborhood for poor artists. When I was there the neighborhood was full of new immigrants, there were people from El Salvador, and from Colombia, and there was a Catholic Church in the neighborhood that had services in Spanish and in English.

That neighborhood would be perfect for poor artists who wanted to work at the Occidental studio.

And it is close to USC.

The Catholic Church by the Occidental movie studio is the Precious Blood Catholic Church, it is a beautiful church, they have both English, and Spanish, and they feed the needy, etc, it is a good Church.

If you are a starving artist in that neighborhood the Precious Blood Catholic Church will give you food. They feed the needy.
