The DCT Academy’s ever popular Makin’ Movies class is 25!  DCT’s very first employee, veteran actor, and Artist-in-Residence, Karl Schaeffer created this class 25 years ago and it is still gowing strong.  Many of the Makin’ Movies students are all grown up now.  Would you like to reminisce about your Makin’ Movies days?  If you or your child took a video class at DCT in the last 25 years and would like to see your video on the big screen then this event is for YOU!
