Kenny Chaplin and P.A.T.S. had a very successful launch in Savannah, Georgia on May 15, 2010. In attendance were 40 students, representatives from Savannah Film Commission, students and teachers from SCAD, and folks generally interested in filmmaking! Meddin Studios hosted the day long event in their state-of-the-art complex.

Kenny Chaplin returned to Savannah in February 2011, to another sold out seminar. He has since been returning to Georgia (five (5) seminars since 2010) ... making Atlanta, Georgia a primary stop. March 2014 was sold out, and he is looking to return Sept. 2014.
