Your Nebraska Film School Alternative

The Nebraska Film Connection provides opportunities that no other film school can.  Instead of sticking you in a college or trade school classroom with a bunch of other students, we place you in a real film production company as a working apprentice (extern), where an actual film professional will instruct and mentor you one-on-one!  Imagine learning the ropes of film production, cinematography, screenwriting and film editing by actually working on-the-job and on the set, and imagine having the chance to make valuable industry connections along the way.  There’s no way you can get this connected to the film industry in a classroom—it only happens when you get directly involved with the film industry. That’s where we put you—from day one.

The great part of it is that you don’t have to start your film career by moving to L.A. and getting lost in the shuffle of all the other people trying to break in.  With our help and our connections, you can start getting connected right here in Nebraska!  Don’t believe us?

Well, just take a look at this partial list of major motion pictures have filmed in Nebraska:

  • Up In the Air (2009)
  • About Schmidt (2002)
  • Terms of Endearment (1983)
  • To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar (1995)
  • Boys Town (1938)
  • Dances With Wolves (1990)
  • Dumb and Dumber (1994)
  • Nebraska (2013)

You can see from this list that many film productions come to Nebraska for location shooting, and that doesn’t even speak to the many local productions that happen in Nebraska all the time!  There are plenty of opportunities to connect to the industry here, and the Nebraska Film Connection gets you in the heart of the action where other schools can’t.

With our training program, you’ll have a curriculum and even homework, but the real value of your training comes from the time you spend one-on-one with your mentor, learning on-the-job.  The curriculum can be tailored to fit your interests (e.g., film editing, cinematography, film directing), and we’ll pair you with a mentor who specializes in your area of interest.  And if your dream is to break into Hollywood with your own film, we have you covered there, too.  Your mentor will guide you through the steps of developing your own film idea, and we will arrange for you to pitch that idea in HOLLYWOOD to actual film executives!

How much does an opportunity like this cost?  You’ll be surprised: our tuition rates are regularly 75% LESS than the competition!  Why?  Because we know that the worst thing you can do is try and start a film career while buried in student debt.  Our goal is to help you launch a career, not get as much money as we can from you—so we keep our costs as low as possible, so you can focus on your career, not on paying off your debt.

Whether you live in Lincoln, Omaha, North Platte or anywhere in between; whether you want to forge a successful career in the local scene, or whether you want to break into Hollywood; the Nebraska Film Connection is the gateway to your new film career.  Ready to get started on the path to your dreams?  APPLY NOW FOR FREE to learn more!
