GEORGIA FILM SCHOOL by Film Connection

Your Georgia Film School Alternative

If you’re serious about establishing a career in film, the Georgia Film Connection is the smartest choice you can make. Why? Because we are the only film school in the state that actually puts you in the heart of the action. With our unique training program, you do not spend a single day in a college or trade school classroom. Instead, we place you as a working apprentice (extern) inside a real Georgia film production facility, learning one-on-one from a seasoned film professional and attending your classes on-the-job and on the set. This not only gives you valuable real-world experience, but it also puts you in position to make important industry connections that can further your career.

What do you want to do in film? Do you want to be a cinematographer? A film editor? A producer? A screenwriter? A director? Our unique, fully accredited curriculum can be tailored to fit your goals and needs. We’ll pair you with a working film professional who specializes in your field of interest, so you can learn how the business really works. We can prepare you to have a successful film industry career right here in Georgia, or we can help you develop your own film idea from scratch and help you pitch your film directly to Hollywood executives! The choice is yours!

You might be surprised at how many opportunities there are in Georgia to connect to the film and television industries.

As you can see, if you want a career in film, you don’t have to start with a trek to Hollywood—there are plenty of opportunities to connect to the industry right here in Georgia, and the Georgia Film Connection is the only film school that can put you where the action is. You’ll be placed as an apprentice (extern) in a real film company and paired with a film professional who will teach and train you one-on-one. You’ll follow a structured curriculum (complete with homework), but the biggest part of your training will happen on-the-job working on real projects. And if your ultimate goal is to work in Los Angeles—well, we’ve got the connections to help make that happen, too, including giving you the chance to pitch your very own film idea to actual Hollywood executives! And the cool thing is that you don’t have to relocate: we have mentors available in cities throughout Georgia, from Atlanta to Savannah, from Albany to Augusta, and many other locations.

How much does this on-the-job training cost? That’s the best part: it costs about 75% LESS than the other film schools will charge you. We know that carrying a large load of student debt is no way to start your career, so we’ve designed our program to be extremely cost-effective, so you won’t be burdened with huge debt when you graduate. It’s the best deal you’ll find anywhere.
Do you have what it takes to make it? Do you have the passion and work ethic to make the most of real opportunities? Are you ready to launch your career as a screenwriter, cinematographer, film editor or director? If so, you owe it to yourself to see what the Georgia Film Connection can do for you.
