LSTFI Alumni and Faculty Star in New Short Film

“[Mitch] McCoy is working alongside LSTFI alumni, Charles Ouda, Miles Lobo, and Logan McCoy.”

Students might know Mitch McCoy (below) as a stage combat teacher, but he also has a wonderful acting career as well. He has just finished filming a new short film from director Gabe Barreto (What You Wanted, My Cricket and Me) titled Truth, Incorporated.

The film follows a small group of news-gathering rebels as they counter a totalitarian regime that has made it a crime to independently report the news. The film honors and upholds the fundamental right of freedom of the press, which is diminishing before our eyes.  It advances minority representation in the media, and values the contributions and rights of immigrants (two of our cast are fighting to keep their Artist Visas or Greencards).

McCoy is working alongside LSTFI alumni, Charles Ouda, Miles Lobo, and Logan McCoy.

The film has already been shot and is now in post-production. In order to fund the post-production of the film, a Seed and Spark Campaign has been created. Goals for the campaign include sound editing and mixing and admissions fees for festivals. If you would like to donate, please click the button below. There are different levels of donation, each with a different thank you gift. The page includes hand made art from the creator, a free portrait session with the director, Gabe Barreto, script analysis and access to the premiere and after party for the first screening in NYC!

Dear Students and Prospective Students,

As news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, we wanted to take time to reassure our community that The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute is monitoring circumstances on a regular basis. We are committed to the well-being and education of our students, faculty and staff. Following in step as other universities and schools, we have transitioned to holding classes remotely in ways that are meaningful.

The Spring 2020 term will begin on April 20th.

These are unique times worthy of serious thought and implementing measures of caution. We trust that our Community will, as always, join together, to find new ways to collaborate, innovate, and continue doing the work we care so deeply about.

Please be sure to follow us on social media for events and updates during this time where we're all Safer at Home.
