Hollywood Cinema Production Resources (“Hollywood CPR”) is inspired by the value of arts as a form of empowerment and a way to help those who are challenged by traditional paths of learning and life.
Hollywood CPR partnership with West Los Angeles College offers vocational training in the trades and skills required for careers in the Artists, Crafts and Technicians departments of the entertainment industry to primarily underserved and under-represented populations.
It also offers exposure to the operation of a professionally operated non-profit “prop house”, which helps fund the program. The prop house receives donations of props and set dressings from the entertainment industry. The donated items are received, recycled and then rented back to the entertainment industry.
Kevin Considine founded Hollywood CPR in 1997 to provide opportunities for underserved individuals to learn a marketable skill and to respond to the cutbacks in public school art and shop programs and the waste from furniture and fixtures discarded by the entertainment industry and businesses.

Hollywood CPR collaborates actively and employs professional instructors that guide and mentor its students in the life skills required for success in the competitive entertainment industry.
