Film Connection is the school alternative that Gives You the Chance to Sell or Make Your Best Movie Idea.
During your time with the Film Connection film school alternative, as you are working in your home city on the technical aspects of directing, cinematography and editing, you will also be working with famous filmmakers on your one big idea for a that great movie idea you want to see on the big screen. You do have a great idea for a movie, don’t you? After all, everyone has a great idea for a movie. What’s yours? Isn’t that why you’re here?
Do you have an action movie in that head of yours? Are you looking to make the next great indie classic? Do you have a genius thriller with a sensational twist, or are you a funny guy/gal with an idea for a comedy that’s burning to get out of your brain? Great. We are here to help you get your movie idea made.
And that’s why, at the end of our program, we set you up with a real Hollywood or NY pitch meeting. You see, most Hollywood films originate in what we call pitch rooms. That is when someone like you, someone with a good idea, sits down in front of the power brokers that can get movies made. The Film Connection film school alternative has the connections to put you in that pitch room and hook you up with the people that can get movies made. Here is how it works.
For the entire 6 months of your externship, you are working closely in one-on-one sessions with a famous Hollywood producer who helps you hone your idea into a brilliant 20-minute pitch. Upon completion of our program, you fly you to L.A.* Once in L.A., you will sit down in a room with someone who has the power to greenlight your movie. You will have 20 to 30 minutes to convince them to do so. Since you’ve been spending the last 6 months working with your Hollywood mentor on your pitch, you will be prepared.
The time is now…live your dream. If not now, when?
* Flying to Los Angeles and/or New York is an additional cost to the student.
