Palm Springs, FL (3/29/21) – G-Star High School of the Arts for Film, Animation and Performing Arts owns the largest motion picture studios in south Florida. The G-Star Studios is home to one of “The Top 7 Motion Picture Sound Stages in the World” (Studios Systems News). Founder Greg Hauptner says, “When we opened in 2003 we wanted our students to have real-world, hands-on experience that no other high school or college could provide. We let multi-million dollar productions rent our Studios only if they have our students on set and mentor them. This after-school program allows our students work as interns on the sets with the movie stars & professional crews.
Presently, there are twelve feature films playing on NetFlix, Disney Channel, and Amazon Prime that were shot at the G-Star Studios and/or on location. Every movie had G-Star students acting or working on the sets. They are:
