Do you dream of being the next Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, James Cameron or Stanley Kubrick? If you do, one thing is for certain: you’re going to need more than just a basic film education. You need to learn the ins and outs of the film business, and that comes by getting into a film production company and spending time in the places where movies are actually made. This is why the Film Connection offers you a one-of-a-kind learning experience, placing you as a student apprentice (extern) inside a real film company. Your mentor-instructor will guide you one-on-one through the entire filmmaking process, showing you the ropes on the latest equipment and software. You’ll learn the magic of special effects, the secrets of sci-fi and fantasy storytelling, how to get the most out of your actors, and how to shoot and edit your film. Perhaps most importantly, by learning in a real-world environment, you’ll gain exposure to many film industry professionals who can help advance your career as a filmmaker.
