There were no film schools devoted to the form of comedy… until now. Trevor Albert & Jack Newell are two key members of the development team at the Second City’s new Harold Ramis Film School. In the spirit of Harold Ramis, the program encourages students to work from the top of their intelligence, immerses them in comedy training, film history, writing and film production classes to give them the context in which to create. We are lucky to have such a resource as these two are helping to create, and doubly lucky that it is in our backyard, Chicago.
Jack is a writer/producer/actor/director of award-winning films that have screened across the United States and abroad, including the Montreal World Film Festival, Chicago International Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner, just to name a few. While, Trevor worked closely with Harold Ramis on Caddyshack, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Club Paradise with Robin Williams and Peter O’Toole, Groundhog Day, Multiplicity and many other films. His most recent and perhaps proudest production is the Academy Award® nominated documentary,Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me, which follows the iconic musician Campbell on his unprecedented tour across America, after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. So needless to say these guys know what they are doing!
Also, in honor of Finding Dory, we tackle Spin-Off movies. Just keep swimming and take a listen.
