Earlier this year, Stage 32, in conjunction with Oscar nominated and Emmy Award winning producer Kip Konwiser, offered a Mentorship program called Getting Your Projects Made Inside of One Year with Kip at the helm.
Kip and his brother Kern have collaborated and partnered with luminaries such as Kenny Ortega, Quincy Jones, Peter Guber, David Falk, Magic Johnson, the Grateful Dead, Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, Chuck D, Oliver Stone, Darren Aronofsky, Laurence Fishburne, and Clint Eastwood, among many others.

With three decades of extensive production experience under his belt, Kip has taken a handful of students under his wing from across the globe, including the United States, Australia, Ireland, England, Hungary, and Canada.
The results so far have been phenomenal, to say the least.
Before the program started, Kip said, "I guarantee in one year I will show you how to get your movie produced from concept to completion; and potentially, extend that experience into a full time career."
Halfway through the program, one of his students (a stuntman and now screenwriter) is in conversations with Bruce Willis and Mel Gibson.
Another student created a sizzle reel and deck of for her horror film to seek out distribution and finance, and is having discussions right now with executives on launching a franchise of horror films in her area.
But that's not all. Click the update video below to learn how his mentorship is shaping the careers of his Stage 32 students.
