Kentucky Film Production Schools
Even though many people find the film industry alluring, knowing how to “break in” into the industry can be a mystery. Film Connection film school in Paducah, KY specializes in matching our students with professional filmmakers who give them real-world experience as externs inside of their own studios, on-location, and at production companies in the Paducah area.
Typical film schools can be expensive, time-consuming, and oftentimes do not provide a clear, commonsense approach to enabling hardworking students to gain a holistic understanding of what production is all about. Attending lectures, reading lots of books, and studying film critique and criticism can be interesting and enriching. Nevertheless, the conventional film school approach which culminates with that hard-earned diploma in hand usually leaves graduates as removed from the film and production industry as they were when they enrolled.
Movies, commercials, TV shows, and documentaries are filmed regularly throughout Kentucky, including in the Paducah area. A few of the films that have been shot in Paducah or surrounding regions include The 3rd Floor, The River Rat, Secretariat, Stripes, and The Perfect Gift, just to name a few. Paducah was also a location site for several classic films, including How the West Was Won and Raintree County.
