James Franco: Actor to Teach ‘High School’ Film Course

James Franco : Actor to Teach High School Film Course

James Franco is going back to high school.

James Franco posted a deadpan selfie (how else would you expect a master of smoldering to take a selfie?) to his Instagram account on Friday, Sept. 4, with the caption: “PALO ALTO HIGH SCHOOL – I will be teaching an 8 part film class for HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. Sign up NOW!” I would if I was under the age of 18 and lived anywhere near that vicinity, Franco! Believe me, I would.

According to the course’s application form— which is due by Sept. 10 — the first class will be held on Sept. 13, and is open to a total of 24 lucky pupils. Students also need to submit a 200-word essay on why they would like to join the class (do you really need 200 words to state why you would want to get in on this? I digress…), need to submit a one-minute video introducing themselves, and should have the ability to work both independently and in groups. The workshop will involve helping with the creation and production of a film “…that will actually be shown in a film festival at the end of the year (if it is good).”
