Your Lexington Film School Alternative

Movies, man. Where do you start when you wanna break in? You can’t get work ‘till you have an agent. You can’t get an agent until you’re working. How do you get established in an industry that works this way? It’s insane.

What if I told you that the Lexington Film Connection Film School could give you a leg up? That the Film Connection could help meet the right people? Yeah, I figured you’d be interested in that.

The Film Connection pairs you with a screenwriter, and editor, and two mentors who will all help you craft your ideas into presentable form. By the end of the Film Connection Program you’ll have a finished screenplay, two fully produced scenes, and a trailer for your film.

Traditional film schools are time intensive and expensive. And they don’t even get you a job. You’re going to film school so that you can get a job making movies, right? Diplomas are useless! It’s pretty much fact.

You know what’s the cherry on top of all of this? We set you up with a meeting with a real studio executive. Yep, that’s right. We get you in the room with a decision maker.

Lexington is Kentucky's second largest city, anchoring a metropolitan area of nearly half a million people. Perhaps best known for its equestrian industry, Lexington is often called the Horse Capital of the World. Numerous entertainment industry people have hailed from this area, including singer Naomi Judd (and her daughter Ashley Judd, the actress), musicians Vince Gill and Troy Gentry, and actors Steve Zahn and Jim Varney (better known as the comical character Ernest). With plenty of beautiful natural scenery within driving distance, close proximity to cities like Cincinnati and Louisville, and lots of film activity around, Lexington makes a good alternative for aspiring film producers, film directors and film editors who would rather not relocate to the craziness of southern California.

Many major movies, commercials, TV shows and documentaries have been filmed in Lexington and other parts of Kentucky on a regular basis.  Just a few of the films that have been shot in and around Lexington include Secretariat, Seabiscuit, Unrequited, and classic movies such as Goldfinger, The Flim-Flam Man and The Asphalt Jungle. Television production is no stranger to Lexington, either; among the television shows that have shot episodes around here are Made In America and WWF Raw. 

FILM CONNECTION's innovative approach will place you for mentoring with a working professional in Lexington's film or television industry, for a six-month, hands-on program that will give you valuable experience and lots of industry connections. Over seventy percent of our graduates find permanent employment in the industry, often even before they leave our program. Find out how Lexington FILM CONNECTION can jump start your film career!
