In addition to the Artist in Residence program, Mewshop's Six Week Intensive also features a regular flow of Guest Lecturers - filmmakers, post-facility owners, Editors Guild reps, directors, producers - who speak with our students either on field trips or in the classroom. These guests all add to the real-world education we provide by adding insight, advice from their own professional and personal experiences.
