Your Zanesville Film School Alternative

You know what a sap is? It’s someone who drops a lot of money on a meaningless film degree. Employers want real world experience, not lots of hours in lecture halls. That’s why we developed Zanesville Film Connection. We present mentors that will help get your career off the ground by providing you with experience on real film sets with real film crews. We have two programs to suit everyone’s needs. The first is our 6-month behind the scenes track that pairs you up with a working professional from the Zanesville area. The other is the 8-month directors program. Learn about filmmaking with local mentors and dream mentors based in Los Angeles. At the end of the program, we fly you out to L.A. to meet with a pitch executive and have your own meeting. Let those saps blow their money, get your career going with Zanesville Film Connection!

Zanesville, Ohio is located in the east-central part of the state, hosting a population of around 25,000 people. Despite its small size, Zanesville is strategic to plenty of natural scenery, and is in convenient driving distance to major cities such as Columbus, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and other places–making it a great central spot for finding filming locations. Several production companies make their home in this area, and Zanesville also benefits from a generous tax incentive plan offered by the state to attract filmmakers to the region. If you are looking at a filmmaking career, whether in directing, producing, editing or other filmmaking professions, you'll find a surprising number of opportunities to learn in Zanesville–and FILM CONNECTION can get you connected to those opportunities.

Ohio regularly serves as the location site for movies, TV shows, specials and documentaries, including around the Zanesville area. A sampling of the movies that have done location filming in the region around Zanesville include Little Man Tate, Noises Off, Traffic, Rebound, 2007 documentary Slacker Uprising, and film classic Brubaker, to name a few. 

The secret to our success is our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach. During our inexpensive, 6-month course, you'll be paired with a working film or television professional who serves as your personal instructor and mentor, guiding you through hands-on training on real film and video shoots in and around Zanesville. The fruit of our revolutionary system is in our graduates; over 70 percent of them get hired in the industry, many times before they even finish our program. You owe it to yourself to see what FILM CONNECTION can do to help you jumpstart your career!
