The Film Connection offers between $500 and $1500 off for active and military veterans, depending on availability, market, and your financial situation.
The Film Connection appreciates the service that the men and women of our armed forces have preformed. As such, the Recording Connection is going out of its way to repay that debt. We offer discounted tuitions to any currently or previously enlisted individuals.
The Film Connection is unlike any other film school. We put the student first. If you’re just getting out of the military and you really want to become a filmmaker, we’ll pair you with a veteran film industry professional who will guide you and shape you into a filmmaking machine, and we will even help you pitch your film idea to a major producer, who can help get your idea off the ground.
The Film Connection is an apprenticeship (externship) program that helps young and aspiring film directors, producers, editors, screenwriters, and crew get their foot in the door, make contacts, and hone their craft. We teach all of our students Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro. We want each and every one of our students to have every skill or problem-solving technique at their fingertips, with industry knowledge only real work experience can teach you.
The Film Connection knows that life after military service can be a difficult transition. Reintegrating into society can be an arduous task. That’s one of the reasons that we have a mentorship system in place. It helps you, the returning veteran, learn how to interact with individuals in the film industry. Your mentor will introduce you to countless people. You’ll be meeting film executives, talent, and famous filmmakers. It is to your benefit to befriend them and make connections with them.
In any creative field, connections mean everything. It’s just a fact. As an apprentice, you’ll be meeting and proving yourself to the people who do the hiring in one of the most difficult industries to break into.
The Film Connection respects the fact that the women and men in our armed services have risked their lives to protect ours. We’re attempting to give back by helping honorably discharged or currently active military personnel follow their dreams of working in the film industry.
