Attention Students!  This is not a regular high school class.  Be prepared to challenge & push yourself!  Most of this course will focus on preparing you for the Creative Industry.  I will do my best to provide opportunities, you must take advantage of these opportunities.  This course is design to replicate the industry as much as possible.  Therefore, there will be no tests and exams!  

Pause for a collective "Yeah"

There will be fun, deadlines, interviews, deadlines, group projects, deadlines, tears, deadlines, cheers, and a lot of major decisions to be made.  There is no place for "me" over the "group."  You will learn the skills to complete projects and deal with conflict.  So gather your "Weapons of Mass Creation" and prepare yourself for a journey.
