On April 13, 2009, Academy Award winning Director Francis Ford Coppola visited OSA and spoke to a group of 100 students in our Black Box Theater for 90 minutes. Mr. Coppola touched on his early years, the origin of his creative and theatrical inspiration, and his work as an acclaimed screenwriter and film director. Offering inspiration and insight, Mr, Coppola gave OSA students sage advice on a variety of subjects, including character development. On this topic, Mr Coppola told students that “telling the truth” and “always being punctual” were two simple but necessary rules by which to live.
The OSA staff and student body thanks Mr. Coppola profusely for taking the time to visit with us and for his generosity of spirit. We are truly awed to have an icon of the American cinema visit our school. Attorney General Jerry Brown is a long-time friend of Mr. Coppola and offered the invitation as a special enrichment to OSA students.

Mr. Coppola’s latest cinematic work, Tetro, is scheduled for release on June 11th. It is the dramatic story of a family in conflict. Visit for more information about this latest work from one of America’s great filmmakers.
