LOS ANGELES (AP) — The organization that hands out the Oscars is making some movies of its own.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is debuting a series of documentary-style digital shorts exploring various aspects of filmmaking. The first three short films premiered online Monday. A new episode is expected each week.

The inaugural shorts cover distinct themes: how blind people enjoy movies, what it's like to visit the film academy archives and how one screenwriter approaches the creative process.

Produced by the film academy's in-house digital team, future episodes will feature academy members such as Paul Haggis, Kathleen Kennedy and Ava DuVernay.
