Your Phoenix Film School Alternative

Think your options for finding Phoenix Film Schools are limited? Look a little closer! There is only one Phoenix Film School that gets you working inside an actual Phoenix film production company, learning directing, producing, editing, camera, screenwriting or general production as a film school student apprentice (extern). Don't be fooled: the smartest way to break into the film business in Phoenix is to become a film apprentice (extern) inside a Phoenix film production company.

Don’t make the mistake of spending 50 thousand dollars or more to go to a film trade school; you could go to film school in a real production company for a fraction of that amount. Be smart, get connected as you get educated–why wait until after you complete your courses to start your internship, when you could do them both together? Our film school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient choice for film school on the market today.

PHOENIX, Arizona is thirteen on the DMA list, and is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Myths tell us that a phoenix is a mythical bird with beautiful gold and red plumage. At the end of its life, it builds a nest of cinnamon twigs that it then ignites. Both the nest and bird burn and are reduced to ashes. From the ashes, a new, young phoenix arises.

Three major mountains buttress Phoenix, providing tons of views along with outdoor sports activities from hiking, to biking and climbing. The Sonoran Desert is a great place to play, and it is one of the most ecologically diverse deserts in the world. With seven large lakes within an easy drive of the city, there is also plentiful water sports activities, and let’s not forget ballooning. Bus Stop, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, Days of Thunder, The Grifters, Jerry Maguire, Psycho, Raising Arizona and Taxi are just a few of the over 400 films that IMDB lists as having used Phoenix as their location.

FILM CONNECTION Film School offers an inexpensive, six month course that will hook you up with a working film or television professional who will serve as your personal instructor.
