Your Kentucky Film School Alternative

Whether you want to launch a lucrative film career company in Kentucky, or whether you want to break into the Hollywood film industry, the Film Connection in Kentucky is your starting place.  Why?  Simple: the Kentucky Film Connection is the best film school in the state, offering you opportunities no other film school can match.  Instead of sticking you in an isolated classroom with a bunch of other students, we put you in the heart of the action, from day one of your training.  We place you as a working apprentice (extern) in a real film production facility, learning one-on-one from an established film industry professional with real film credits.  This allows you to gain valuable work experience on the set, as well as making important connections you could never make in a college or trade school classroom.

Whether your interest is in film editing, screenwriting, cinematography, producing or directing, we’ve got connections with an industry professional who can teach and mentor you on-the-job.  And if your dream is to pitch your own film to Hollywood executives, our curriculum will show you step by step how to do it—and then we’ll actually arrange for you to do it!

The best part is, you don’t have to start your career in the vast, competitive film scene of Los Angeles. Your path to Hollywood starts right here in Kentucky with our unique one-on-one training program.

Don’t believe us? Well, just take a look at this partial list of major motion pictures that were shot in Kentucky:

  • Stripes (1981)
  • Elizabethtown (2005)
  • Coal Miner’s Daughter (1980)
  • Rain Man (1988)
  • A League of Their Own (1992)
  • Raintree County (1957)
  • Goldfinger (1964)
  • Seabiscuit (2003)
  • The Ides of March (2011)

Surprised?  The truth is, major films shoot on location in Kentucky all the time, and when they do, they often rely on local talent.  All you need is the right opportunity to get connected to the film industry in Kentucky—and by placing you as an apprentice (extern) on-the-job, that’s exactly the opportunity we give you that the other film schools do not.

Imagine learning the ropes of film production, editing, screenwriting, camera work and more from someone who actually makes a living doing it.  Imagine going to class on-the-job and on the set, rather than in a classroom.  Imagine the people you could meet who could further your career.  And imagine that this is all contained in a unique, fully accredited film training program.  Now you’re getting the idea behind the Kentucky Film Connection.

Now imagine creating and developing your own film idea from scratch with the help of your mentor, then pitching that film directly to actual Hollywood executives.  With any other film school, this is pure fantasy, but with the Film Connection, it’s part of your curriculum!  That’s right—if you choose, your film mentor will take you step by step through the process of developing your film, and then we’ll arrange a meeting in Los Angeles for you to pitch that film to real industry executives.  Name one other film school that does this.

Then there’s the question of price.  Going to an expensive film school usually results in crushing student debt that can kill your dreams before they ever get off the ground.  With our program, even with all this one-on-one attention, even with the opportunities to connect directly to Hollywood, you’ll pay 75% LESS than if you enroll in a classroom film school!

So that only leaves one question: are you ready to get started?  If you’re serious about getting on the path toward a successful film career, APPLY FOR FREE right now, and let the Kentucky Recording Connection get you on the set of a real production company in your area.
