Professionals, not Teachers
The Film Connection Advantage
Many FILM SCHOOLS claim that by enrolling in their school, you will be taught by a working professional. But are these teachers really “working in the business” or are they “working as teachers”? We have nothing against teachers; teachers are wonderful, and we commend them for their dedication to education. But it’s worth asking: If these teachers working at the big film schools are in fact working in the film business, how do they have time to teach you in a classroom? If they were working professionals, wouldn’t they be working on their own film projects, getting paid to direct or produce films and videos for a living, instead of spending their time in a college classroom teaching film classes?
With the Film Connection, your classroom is in a real film company or video set, and your mentor is ALWAYS a working professional who is training you one-on-one. You’ll be working on real life film projects alongside your mentor, literally learning on the job. The bottom line is that you will be working on real film projects with real budgets under the direct one-on-one supervision of a working film director, producer or editor. There is simply no way this kind of intensive, practical training could ever be duplicated in a classroom.
Do you think you can duplicate this kind of real world education in a classroom? Every day you will meet real world, film industry contacts. Do you really think that a traditional film school can introduce you to these real world contacts? Sure, you might meet a pro or two at the school’s “career day” seminar or lecture, but do you really think that he is going to ever hire you? Especially, when there are ten, twenty, thirty or more other kids in your class all wanting the same thing?
The Film Connection Film School provides training in a much more practical way: on real sets, under real life working conditions, being trained one-on-one by a working professional. We’re not asking you to take our word for it; in fact, we urge you to do your own research. We’re confident that once you’ve checked out the other film schools, you’ll be back, because it will be glaringly obvious that NO OTHER SCHOOL offers the kind of training, or the kind of real-world opportunities that we offer.
