Careers in Action Filmmaking
Let’s face it: moviegoers love adventure. We go to the movies to enter another world, to experience adventure and peril we’d never risk in real life. That’s why we love classic adventure flicks like Raiders of the Lost Ark (and all the Indiana Jones movies), Star Wars, Die Hard, Speed, The Great Escape, First Blood and many others. (It’s also why action movies also involve multiple sequels, and why most of the films mentioned above have many sequels.)
What Careers exist for Action Filmmakers?
If you want make great action movies like Steven Spielberg, George Lucas or J.J. Abrams, there’s no denying the fact that you’re going to need to know the ins and outs of filmmaking—and that comes by immersing yourself in the industry itself, not by sitting in a college classroom someplace. That’s why from your very first day as a student of the Film Connection, you’ll be placed in a real film production company as an extern, where you will be taught one-on-one by the kind of filmmaker who makes the movies you love. You’ll learn the art of filmmaking by working on the actual equipment and software used to shoot and edit films, and you’ll learn from someone who knows the film business inside and out. By showing up each day to the studio, you’ll also get valuable work experience on actual film projects, and you’ll make many vital industry connections as you work with industry professionals on a daily basis.
What better way to learn to make action movies than by learning in the heart of the action? Learn how the film business REALLY works, by studying under someone who really knows the business.
