Filmmaking for the faithful
CCC welcomes Robert Townsend
Filmmaker Robert Townsend is back by popular demand at Crenshaw Christian Center’s (CCC) The Master Class. Pastor Fred Price Jr. of CCC will host the talented actor-director-writer-producer at his special seminar series from 1 – 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 24 at the church located at 7901 South Vermont Ave. in Los Angeles.
Last month, Townsend treated nearly 300 guests and members of CCC to a “spirited” discussion about the art of filmmaking. The seminar was half comedy performance and half instruction as the comedian mixed humor with information on pitching, producing, and film writing, featuring film clips from his anthology of shows.
Townsend has agreed to do an additional seminar because previous students thoroughly enjoyed the seminar and requested more time with the seasoned pro. This class is for all levels, but attendees are encouraged to come prepared to pitch and be critiqued by Townsend. Admission is $50. Proceeds will go to the Robert Townsend Foundation and CCC’s Blue Print. For more information call, (323) 758-3777 ext. 4645. www.faithdome.org.
