Motion picture writer/director/producer (Beethoven, The Flintstones, Jingle All the Way, Snow Dogs, Are We There Yet?) and occasional University of New Mexico instructor Brian Levant started his Sitcom Boot Camp at UNM three years ago. The annual six-week class allows a small number of students to create, develop, rewrite (and rewrite and rewrite) an original half-hour, network-style pilot for a situation comedy. This Thursday, Feb. 27, Levant’s students are set to show off their skills by staging a live reading of this year’s finished sitcom script, “Showdown in Lobo Village.” The reading—which also happens to be the class’ final exam—takes place from 7 to 8:30pm at the Elizabeth Waters Center for Dance (located inside Carlisle Gym on UNM’s Main Campus). Students and local professional actors have been tapped to participate. Levant says the popular annual event showcases his “pride in the quality of UNM’s fast-expanding Film & Digital Arts Department,” and he promises that this year’s reading will be a “rousing show.” This event is open to the public. Admission is free.
