“Professor” McConaughey to Teach Film Class at UT Austin
This Fall students at UT Austin can look forward to seeing a well known Oscar winning face on campus, well at least once anyway.
Matthew McConaughy has signed on to teach a class on film production, mostly via pre-recorded video, according to Variety. He will be using his 2016 release "Free State of Jones" as a vehicle to provide students with an in depth, behind-the-scenes look at the development of a feature film.
Here is the full course description from the University of Texas website:
Script to Screen takes students behind the scenes of the 2016 film Free State of Jones written and directed by Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) and starring Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey (Interstellar). By studying the movie’s source material, script, shot lists, storyboards, shooting schedule, VFX, final cut and even exclusive behind the scenes footage, students will garner insight into the production of a major Hollywood feature. This class also gives students practical instruction on producing their own projects including web series, shorts, commercials and indie features. From guidance on pitching to the ins and outs of founding a production company, Script to Screen is an essential “how-to” for students who are serious about a career in production.
You know what McConaughey loves about college girls, right? Right? You know.
