Do you want to be the next Quentin Tarantino? Do you live in Cheyenne? Do you have a drive for success and glory?

Well, then the Film Connection Film School in Cheyenne, WY can help you.

We match young aspiring filmmakers with seasoned industry pros who can help them navigate the quagmire of Hollywood.

We team you up with a screenwriter, an editor, and two different mentors. And the coolest part? They’re all working on your idea. That’s right. You’re not working for them. They work for you. Their talents are being put to use bringing your big idea to fruition.

You need to evaluate the state of the industry. The only way you’re breaking into the industry is if you know someone. The traditional film school doesn’t introduce you to people. It just helps you understand what’s been done before. But what’s the point of that? We’re blazing a new trail here. We want to go into the future. Upwards and onwards, right?

Film Connection gets you in the right place at the right time. Film Connection opens doors. Film Connection steers you toward success. Pure and simple.

Cheyenne is Wyoming’s state capital and largest city, home to nearly 58,000 people. Located in the southeast corner of the state not far from the Colorado and Nebraska state lines, Cheyenne is convenient to a wide range of gorgeous locations for filmmaking, including rolling prairies, majestic mountains, rock formations, rivers, railroad yards, and even urban areas (Denver is less than 2 hours to the south).

About This Mentor

Wyoming regularly serves as a location site for the filming of movies, TV shows, commercials, specials and documentaries–and the area in and around Cheyenne is no exception.  Examples of movies filmed in Cheyenne and the surrounding regions of Wyoming include Wicked Season, Hearsay, The Laramie Project, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Thickness of Delirium, and classic westerns Cheyenne Autumn and The Plainsman, to name a few.  If you are considering a career in filmmaking as a film director, film producer, film editor, or cameraman, Cheyenne affords a surprising amount of opportunity–and FILM CONNECTION can put you in the center of the action.

With our many professional connections and relationships forged over the years, FILM CONNECTION is able to connect you to the industry in ways other film schools can’t. We accomplish this through our revolutionary mentor-extern approach, pairing you with a working film or TV professional who serves as your personal instructor on real film and video shoots. Many of our graduates get hired, often even before they finish our course! You owe it to yourself to see what FILM CONNECTION of Cheyenne can do for you!
