The American film industry is unique in that it markets the "American experience. Many countries have their own film industry and their ways of doing things but each one is influenced with what originates from the West. Hollywood is the Mecca of the global film industry. It's way of working sets the rules on how things are done.  Speed, efficiency and optimum results are the bottom line and no place does it better than Hollywood USA.

This in no way is meant to diminish the value of Classic Russian Cinema. On the contrary, Hollywood takes from the best and have long followed the lessons taught by Russian masters like Chekhov, Eisenstein, and Vertov. One of the objectives of the HIMC program is to reaffirm the significance of Russian film production during it's golden age and add it to our curriculum. We review the historical achievements made in visual story telling and combine it with practical everyday lessons. Our program is set to combine the ideal with the real.

The MI-HIMC Immersive Vocal and DJ Programs are designed to give students an intensive dive into the art and craft of contemporary vocal and DJ performance. Programs achieve their learning objectives through a blend of theoretical and practical applications of core vocal and DJ techniques, styles, approaches, and environments (stage and studio, group classes and one-on-one private lessons) taught by experienced vocalists? DJs and faculty with the assistance of a live band in the heart of the Los Angeles music scene. The programs are ideal for beginners, but also those wishing to further develop their vocal or DJ techniques and performance skills in the cultural setting of Hollywood, California.



We at HIMC have created a program to train vocalists, DJs, actors, filmmakers and television journalists from throughout the world. Our intensive four-week program combines practice with theory. Our focus is on music studies, the dramatic arts and television journalism. Our aim is to teach students to implement their professional skills in the film and music business. This  is a unique synthesis of art, creativity and business, and if the secrets of creativity are more or less known, the secrets of the business, as a rule, remain secrets. The American music and film industry are huge and complicated business mechanisms that works according to certain laws and regulations. We want our students to understand these rules and learn how to follow them correctly, to build their cinematic careers and point the way to success. This is the main goal of the program: "Success strategies for a career in music business and world cinema.”

In addition, our program also aims to increase your professional skills with an emphasis on how to realize yourself in the profession properly and effectively, on how to sell your knowledge and skills.


Our expectation is that our graduates will be able to use the skills and direction we provide to become skilled professionals capable of finding employment in the film industry. We expect them to either continue their education or join the workplace and help lead the way to modernization and advancement.
