Our Vision

A central component of G-Star’s Vision is to create an on-going and self-sustaining feature-film industry in Palm Beach County and South Florida. In this way our students will go on to graduate from college and return to be employed in a film industry we have created. They will be the future writers, directors, producers, actors, editors, and crew for that industry. We are the only educational entity that we know of that is developing an entire industry with the purpose of employing our students after they graduate from college.
