Matthew McConaughey is a star in Hollywood, but he is also a University of Texas alum and a huge fan of Longhorns athletics. Now, he is going to get the opportunity to teach a film class at his alma mater.
McConaughey will join forces with director Gary Ross to teach “Advanced Producing: Script to Screen.”
“By studying the movie’s source material, script, shot lists, storyboards, shooting schedule, VFX, final cut and even exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, students will garner insight into the production of a major Hollywood feature,” the course description says, via Variety.com.
While McConaughey is a teacher for the course, he is expected to only visit the actual classroom once.
Instead, most of his course teachings will be through video for the 30-member class.
The university made an official announcement on social media.

This is a great opportunity for Texas students to learn from someone with incredible experience on the biggest stages in Hollywood, so let’s hope the 30 class members receive great direction that will lead them to success down the road in their careers.
