As a part of an innovative partnership between the USC School of Cinematic Arts and the Communication University of China in Beijing, a handful of students travel across the ocean, pair up with students they've never met or communicated with and then work intensively over six weeks to produce penetrating explorations of various topics.
 
The program began in 2006 at USC and since then has alternated between Los Angeles and Beijing. At USC, Professors Marsha Kinder and Mark Jonathan Harris launched the project. Generous donations from Stephen Lesser have made the project possible.The USC US-China Institute has also provided financial support for the initiative.
