Film School  The Quest for the Fabled Three-Picture Deal
Steven Fischler

When Micchael Benton arrived at NYU Film School in 1969 the only thing that concerned him was how to fast-track it to Hollywood. However, world events – along with sex, drugs and 16 mm film – conspired to take him in quite a few different directions…

Although there are similarities with the real career path taken by Steve Fischler and Joe Sucher, FILM SCHOOL, creates a new, fictional reality, using characters based on some of the luminaries who passed through NYU Film School’s hallowed halls.

FILM SCHOOL will also draw upon the actual footage shot during Steve and Joe’s tumultuous tenure at NYU --the demonstrations, the building takeovers, the chaos, the parties, and the visits by FBI and RED SQUAD agents. Vintage footage of a young Martin Scorsese, along with classmate Oliver Stone and Yippie conspirator Abbie Hoffman will provide compelling background to a story of young film students in search of Hollywood’s holy grail: a three picture studio deal.

FILM SCHOOL will be a sweeping personal feature that will capture the intrigue, the excitement, the cynicism and the passion of filmmaking in a creative incubator – a crucible that forged some of Hollywood’s most influential artists.
