WEST COAST DRAMA CLAN PRESENTS TELEVISION MOTION PICTURE WORKSHOP

 WEST COAST DRAMA CLAN PRESENTS
 TELEVISION MOTION PICTURE WORKSHOP
 PITTSBURGH, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Several Carnegie Mellon University graduates with successful careers in the entertainment industry will return to campus to work with drams students in a television and motion picture seminar on April 29 through May 2.
 Entitled "Making Choices in a World of Opportunities," the seminar brings a group of established and emerging television talents back into the classroom to help train aspiring performers and artists.
 Returning alumni include Emmy Award-winning actor Bruce Weitz ("Hill Street Blues"), production designer Chip Dox ("Days of Our Lives"), director/writer Les Ferreira ("Head of the Class") writer and producer John Wells ("China Beach"), director Casey Childs ("As the World Turns," "Another World"), Emmy Award-winning costume designer Nanrose Buchman ("Fame," "Dallas") and former producer for Universal Television and CBS, and president of the West Coast alumni group, Jerry Adler.
 They will share their experiences in various disciplines of the film and television industry, and lead students through the rigors of creating and producing a broadcast-quality television episode in three days. Acting students will learn about auditioning and performing for the small screen from television "stars." Would-be writers will work with a studio writer to take a teleplay from a story idea to storyboard. Production students will design sets and costumes with established talents. And, aspiring producers and directors will learn from well-established industry veterans.
 "It's kind of funny but there is a Carnegie Mellon cult in Los Angeles," says Adler. "There are many film, television and theater artists and performers working on the West Coast who came up through the Carnegie Mellon drama program in Pittsburgh. Who'd think there would be such a beaten path from Pittsburgh to Hollywood? Now this is our chance to give something back to the school that helped train us."
 Carnegie Mellon's drama department introduced the nation's first college degree in drama in 1914 and has a tradition of training students for careers in theater, film, and, now, television.
