Many people go to film school and don't know where to start in a production.
Somewhere between 10 and 30 thousand dollars spent, and still can't put a movie together.
Learn how to make movies from a filmmaker with distribution in place.
Actually produce your own short in one day.
Understand lighting, sound, composition, acting, blocking and more.
In one day you will learn enough to be able to make your own production.

Will you learn everything about film making?
Of course not!
But you'll learn enough to be able to make a respectable production.
Filmmakers are constantly learning more to improve their craft.
Unfortunately many have never learned the basic skills to start off with.
Even many who have gone to film school.
There's a reason that less than 5% of filmmakers get distribution.

How many times have you heard
"I want to direct. I've never made a film, but I know what I want it to look like."
I hear this, read this, too many times.

'Well I want my dream house built.
I've never built a home, but I know what I want it to look like.
Therefore I will be the foreman on the construction site.'

Sounds silly, don't you think?
But this is how many first-time directors think.
Having never filmed anything at all, having never been a part of a production, they want to direct.
Knowing nothing about lighting, sound, cinematography, blocking, or many other aspects of film making,
they're off to making a film, expecting everyone to fall in love with their dream.
Expecting to get distribution, or 'picked up.'
It's an unrealistic hope.

Or they want to have their team figure everything out.
'The production crew should be trusted to make the project work.'
Then they, the director, just says action and cut, and wants to be respected as the director.
If everyone else is doing the thinking and problem solving, then you're not really the director.
So why does the production need you?
Think about that.
The director is the one who has to make sure that everyone is doing their job correctly,
and call people on their s#!t.

Take my one day film class.
Learn how to make a set work.
Learn the essentials.
You can take another day, two, three, or more, if you wish.
You could hone your skills even more.
You will have a much better idea of how to run a set, what to do and what not to do.
You will be much more prepared to make that dream of filmmaking happen.

Some of what you'll learn

The 8 essential elements of filmmaking.
Why festivals are mostly a waste of time and money.
Why most students of film schools don't learn filmmaking.
Methods to creative cinematography.
If your camera is set to auto, you're doing it wrong.
Natural lighting? Never in a real production.

In one or two days of my film class, you will learn more than many schools teach you in 6 months.
It is a one on one teaching.
It is on set.
And the cost is considerably less.
I am starting off at $200 for the day.
Once I get some behind the scenes footage and testimonials for my website, the cost is going up.
So jump on this now.
