WYOMING FILM SCHOOL by Film Connection

Your Wyoming Film School Alternative

The Wyoming Film Connection is hands-down your best option for getting connected to the film industry.  Why?  Because we get you into the heart of the action in ways no other film school can.  Unlike other schools that place their students into crowded classrooms, we get you into a real film production company as an apprentice (extern), where you learn the ropes of the film business one-on-one from a seasoned film professional.  Your classes take place on-the-job and on the set, where you’ll be able to establish yourself within the film industry while the other film students are still sitting in their classrooms.

Whether you want to be a film editor, director, producer, screenwriter or cinematographer, we can pair you with a mentor who can show you the ropes one-on-one.  The best part is, you don’t have to leave home to get connected to the film business, because we can place you in a film production company near where you live.

If you think there are no opportunities to plug into the film industry in Wyoming, think again.

Here’s just a partial list of major motion pictures that have filmed on location in the state:

  • A River Runs Through It (1992)
  • Flicka (2006)
  • Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)
  • Starship Troopers (1997)
  • Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)
  • The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976)
  • Dances With Wolves (1990)
  • Brokeback Mountain (2005)
  • Django Unchained (2012)
  • Nebraska (2013)

As you can see from this partial list, you don’t necessarily have to move to Los Angeles to connect to the film industry, because the film industry comes to Wyoming to film!  There are many opportunities to make industry connections here, and the Wyoming Film Connection can help you make the most of those opportunities when they arise.

With our program, you’ll have a structured curriculum and even homework, but you won’t spend a single day in a classroom (unless, of course, you’re filming on location in a classroom!). Your instructor is a seasoned film professional who specializes in your particular field of interest, whether cinematography, editing, producing, directing, etc.  Your lessons take place one-on-one, and you’ll have plenty of experience working with your mentor on actual projects.  And if your dream is to make the jump to L.A. to make your own movies, your mentor can even guide you step by step as you develop your own original film idea—and when you’re ready, we’ll even set up the meeting for you to pitch that film to real film executives in Los Angeles! (There’s a reason why they call us the Film Connection—we’ve got loads of them. Connections, that is.)

Concerned about student debt?  So are we.  Nothing can kill a film career faster than debt—so we do everything we can to keep you out of debt, mainly by keeping your tuition incredibly low.  While other film schools charge exorbitant tuition rates that practically force you into debt, we charge about 75% LESS than the other guys!

Ask anyone who works in film, and they’ll tell you the key to breaking in is to get real experience and connections—neither of which you’ll get by sitting in a classroom.  With the Wyoming Film Connection, you’ll get both experience and connections, along with the best film education you’ll find anywhere.  Are you ready to get started?
