Learning And Working With The Film Connection

by Brian Kraft
Consultant for Recording, Radio, Film Connection and CASA Schools

The Film Connection is one of those few educational institutions that really puts its students first. It makes for not only a better education experience but also a better employment ecosystem. The Film Connection pairs its students with individuals who are currently working professionals within the film world. This means if a student is looking to become a writer then we pair them with a writer who teaches them everything they need to know about the craft of writing films. If the student desires to be a director, the Film Connection takes the student and teams them up with a working director. The Film Connection is a great way for any aspiring film student to get started in the industry. The Film Connection will set you up with all the skills, contacts and experience that you’ll need in order to succeed. You’ll be the only thing standing between you and success. You’ll be in the room with the decision makers, you’ll have a screenplay, you’ll have the experience. You’ll have what it takes to be able to make your career burst into being. The Film Connection will enable you to get inside a real production company, make connections, learn your craft from someone who does it professionally, and be able to fully live up to your potential as a storyteller. The Film Connection is a tool. It’s up to you how you use it. It can help you make connections with professionals who would normally be out of your reach, you can use it to gain experience from working on-set, or you can use it to fine-tune your screenplay. Exactly how you go about it is completely up to you.
