Your Corpus Christi Film School Alternative

Did you know that there’s a low cost alternative to the expensive traditional film school located right in Corpus Christi? It’s called The Film Connection and it’s going to blow your mind.

Are you an aspiring filmmaker who dreams of changing the face of cinema? Well, now you can. Film Connection is an apprenticeship (externship) program that pairs aspiring filmmakers with working film professionals.

The Film Connection is what film schools should be. It’s a hands-on learning environment where you gain the skills and experience that you’ll need to make the movies that you want to make. Traditional film schools are expensive and dogmatic. We get it, German Expressionism was crazy and the French New Wave changed everything. Awesome. Let’s move on. Let’s do something new and original.

Let’s have students making movies about what’s important to them.
