You can move to L.A. and study with us, but you don’t have to. Because today, a career in film can happen anywhere.

The way the Film Connection works is simple. We have filmmaking professionals in almost every city in the U.S.  Our professional directors, editors, cinematographers, screenwriters and producers will train you inside their film companies as an apprentice (extern), teaching you the crucial technical skills you’ll need to be employable in film. At the same time, you’ll also be paired with a famous Hollywood Writer, Producer or Screenwriter (who has made celebrated films), who will help you develop your best idea for a great movie. You will then fly to L.A. or New York and pitch your idea to a studio, executive or film producer who can get you movie made. They don’t call us revolutionary for nothing…
