THE FILM INDUSTRY
The Film Connection in Wisconsin is the best film school in the state, for one important reason: we put you in the heart of the action, from your very first day of training. While other film schools gather their students into crowded classrooms far from any real film industry activity—we put you into a real film production facility as a working extern, learning one-on-one from a seasoned industry pro. Our mentor-extern approach offers you the chance to gain valuable work experience in film while making important industry connections—all while you are a student, instead of after you graduate!
Imagine being taught cinematography by a working cinematographer. Imagine learning to edit films from a film editor with real credits. Imagine learning to direct movies by working alongside an actual director. This might seem like a fantasy to most film students, but at the Wisconsin Film Connection, this is how we teach our students every day.
The best part is that you don’t have to migrate to Hollywood to get started in the film industry, because we have plenty of connections to get you started right here in Wisconsin!
