Your Augusta Film School Alternative

The biggest thing to hit Augusta since the Masters is our film school. We’re Augusta Film Connection and we’ve got mentors ready for you!

Our 6-month behind the scenes track partners you up with working professionals from Augusta who will guide your progress and ensure that you understand not just the technical demands of working in filmmaking but the importance of networking and a professional demeanor in your day-to-day collaborations with other professionals.

If you elect our 8-month director track, you get the added bonus of working a dream mentor in addition to your local mentors. Your dream mentor is a working professional in Los Angeles who will be in regular contact with you throughout your program. At the end of your program, project in hand, you will then come out to Los Angeles to meet your dream mentor and hone your project’s pitch. Once that’s ready you will meet with another industry professional, usually someone who greenlights projects here in Hollywood, to see where your project stacks up against the pros. No other film school anywhere offers you this chance to make your dreams become a reality!

Augusta, Georgia is located on the eastern side of Georgia at the South Carolina border, with an approximate population of nearly 200,000 people–but set in a metro area of over half a million. While film schools are scarce in Augusta (except for ours, of course), there are several film or television production companies in this area, which is where we place you for film school. Additionally, Georgia is a very film-friendly area, offering incentives of up to 30 percent in tax credits for films shot here; in fact, hundreds of professional productions take place in Georgia every year. Augusta even has its own film office to help facilitate filmmakers with their needs. If you are considering a career in filmmaking as a film director, film producer, or film editor, Augusta provides a surprising alternative to relocating to other hotspots like New York, L.A. or Florida. 

Some of the movies that have been filmed in Augusta and other parts of Georgia include Six Pack, That Darn Cat, The Blind Side, We Were Soldiers, The Fighting Temptations and Dumb and Dumberer, to name a few. 

Major film companies such as Lionsgate, MGM, Columbia, Paramount and Warner Brothers regularly choose this part of the country for location filming, making it a great connection point for film students and filmmaking professionals.  That's a key ingredient of our innovative strategy–connecting you with the industry while giving you the chance for hands-on experience working with the pros. Over 70 percent of FILM CONNECTION students get permanent jobs, many even before they graduate. Why not check out Augusta FILM CONNECTION, and see what we can do for your career?
