We’re kind of surprised that it took this long to have a comedy specific film school.
After surviving a fire last year, Second City in Chicago are expanding their operations to include a comedy film school program. They’re going to dedicate it (appropriately, we think) to the late Second City alumnus Harold Ramis and the one-year program promises to cover every bit of comedy in film from theory to history to practice.
We’ll be curious to see what Harold Ramis Film School alumni will crank out after they got their certificates and how it’ll stack up against top film schools across the country as well as what students of UCB, iO, etc. will be putting out.
