Soon to debut : Santa’s Boot Camp
Cortona graduate Ken Feinberg’s award winning family Christmas movie. A movie the entire family can watch together.
Ken been producing, directing, writing, and acting for over 25 years in award-winning films, hit television series and major theater projects in Los Angeles, New York, Florida and Atlanta. Winning numerous awards in more than 100 productions, he achieved a great deal in his years in Hollywood after nurturing his career in New York and Atlanta. Feinberg teaches directing, screenwriting and acting at his studios. He is the founder of the CSA Film Academy a highly selective, year-long acting program where Feinberg mentors actors with potential. Many of Feinberg’s students have been seen starring in feature films, series regulars on television, commercials, voice over, print, billboards and even Broadway.
Co-written with Mimi Fontaine and Kelly Nettles, Feinberg’s modern-day take on Santa includes insight on how Elves use social media and modern technology to put together the “naughty” and “nice” lists; asks its characters to confront real-life issues of bullying and stereotyping; and even takes Santa to task for being a little too old-fashioned about what Christmas means in a modern, multicultural world. Feinberg says that the more universal themes of the story remained clearly in focus despite the modern twists: “Santa Claus is a universal symbol for unconditional giving and creating good will, so we see him as that much more than a specifically Christian symbol. We wanted it to have a universal feeling and the message that no matter your religion, you need to think about your actions as a person.”
