About On The Set

David Tucker, Jr.

Peep This Actors-Directors Guild is the non-profit organization that presents On The Set Summer Film Camp. The Actors-Directors Guild was created and established by David Tucker, Jr. in 2007. David became the first person in the State of Alabama to write, direct, produce and sell a film into national distribution in year 2000.  David was the first African American to be appointed to the previous Birmingham Jefferson Film Commission and sold his 2nd feature film, “Magic City” to Carmike Theaters in 2005. David was also selected as the Executive Director and Producer of the documentary “FIFTY”, which chronicles historical events of the Birmingham City Council during the Civil Rights Movement.

The mission of Peep This Actors-Directors Guild is to serve as a public laboratory for showcasing academic year and summer professional training and research in film, theater and music for Birmingham and the State of Alabama youth.  It is our purpose to be a vital community resource by providing creative and accessible programs through which young people can experience meaningful development in a safe and accepting environment. 

On The Set teaches the full realm of filmmaking to kids between the ages of 10 to 18. The campers go on location and are placed on a live action set to shoot a short film that stars a real Hollywood Actor!  They are literally given full responsibility of each element of film production, while being supervised by a professional.  Once the film is ready to be shown, On The Set presents a RED Carpet Premiere and Awards Show! There is no other film camp in the world that offers the entire process of filmmaking on this level!
