Panelists for the class include Valerie Perez (producer/star of the Paula Peril series), Jack Conway (head of programming Vision Entertainment), Vera Vanguard (writer/producer/star of Breaking Barbi), Nick Murphy (writer/director of All Night Skate), Josh Perilo (creator/writer of Hindenburg), and Sean Rourke (writer of Ballistica).
