Once we became introduced to Sneak On The Lot, we knew we had a partner for life. So during the past 2 years, over 40 Ladue High School students have taken part in the curriculum. Without a doubt, Sneak On The Lot has helped boost interest in our program, educated our film students immensely, and student interest in our film classes is at an all-time high! I have 3 Seniors who just graduated and will be attending film school in the fall. Sneak On The Lot was a MAIN component of their successful admission into their chosen colleges

Great workshop. Amazing people to work with. It’s hard to find an extensive and accessible workshop about the production of film for teachers but it is even more of a rarity to find such genuine people that love so much about education and student growth.

The Sneak On The Lot summer workshop was an unbelievable experience that every video production teacher should participate in. “It all starts with the script!” …and great producers!

Lisa Keith Teacher

Lisa Sylvester

Fletch & Chet showed how a film is constructed from an abstract idea to finished product.  I compare this to construction of a building.  This workshop showed, and allowed us to participate in every step of the construction.  As a teacher, I can truly appreciate what steps I need to teach my students. Preproduction is the foundation of a beautiful film.
