This isn’t a boring Houston film school classroom. This isn’t an overcrowded college laboratory. This is life. Real Life. YOUR LIFE.

If you’re looking to break into the film industry, attending a traditional college or university might not be your best option. Traditional film school programs require two years of general education courses before you can even begin studying the specifics of filmmaking. With Houston Film Connection, however, you can jump right into the action and get an insider’s view of how movies, TV shows, and videos are made.

With so many film schools and film courses available it can be difficult to find one that gives you real-life experience. Film Connection film courses in Houston provide an invaluable learning opportunity by allowing film hopefuls to learn from experienced industry professionals and gain valuable hands-on experience. Learn directing, producing, editing, camera, screenwriting, or general production directly from those who have succeeded in the industry!

Don’t Spend More on your Film Education if You Don’t Have to

At our Houston Film School, we understand that you want to get started in the film business as soon as possible. That’s why our program focuses on learning by doing—you’ll be working one-on-one with a mentor who is already established in the industry. Not only will you gain valuable experience through hands-on instruction, but you’ll also have access to real-world projects that give you practical experience and make your resume stand out from other candidates.

Our program isn’t just about learning theory; it’s about learning how things are done in real life. You’ll get an inside look at every step of production from pre-production planning all the way through post-production editing and distribution. You’ll also gain insight into what it takes to run a successful production company—from budgeting and scheduling to networking and marketing yourself as a filmmaker.
