Atlanta is undoubtedly the media capital of the South and there is no shortage of production companies and professionals that are available to pair up with our students to prepare them for the many available jobs in Atlanta’s booming entertainment market. We’re Atlanta Film Connection and we offer two paths for aspiring filmmakers.
If you select our 6-month behind the scenes track, you will be partnered with an experienced filmmaker in your field that will mentor you and train you in one of the most dynamic and diverse entertainment markets in the world. They will give you the inside track on what it takes to become a working professional in film or television production.
On the other hand, by selecting our 8-month director track you will be paired up with your local mentors and an additional dream mentor, a working industry pro in Los Angeles who will regularly monitor your progress. During the final week of the program, you will be flown out to L.A. to meet with your dream mentor and pitch your project to industry pros who greenlight projects all the time here in Hollywood. Imagine how far ahead of the game you will be having worked in both Atlanta and Los Angeles!

Checking in on our Georgia Film Students who are learning filmmaking where they live in places like Atlanta and Marietta
I went on my first film shoot. It was an interview with the co-founder of Home Depot. I went on two more film shoots. On tuesday it was somewhat like a news conference Laura Sydel, the wife of the Owner of the NHL hockey team Atlanta Thrashers, she showed us her "green" house for a segment we were doing. On Thursday was another film shoot. We were shooting a piece for the show Groundbreakers that airs on HGTV. Then I was in Sandestin, Florida, with Allen and his crew, shooting a resort video for the Sandestin Resort. We left on Tuesday 10/21/08 and got back late Sunday night 10/27/08. We worked every day, shooting just about everything in the Resort. I was there to help set up lights, run electricity, load and unload everything. Anything you can think of, I did. I was pretty much, the grip/light man. It was a great experience, and I learned a lot on this trip.
