The courses are designed to give users an in-depth look at many of the crew positions on a film. Working together or as individuals, students follow character pathways as they discover for themselves what roles best fit them.


  • Writer - A great script is the foundation for any good film. It’s also one of the most elusive of crafts. We’ll explain how it’s done and how to get you off on the right foot.

  • Producer - There is a reason the producer receives the award for Best Picture. It’s a big job and we’ll bring Oscar winning producers to the classroom to tell you how it’s done.

  • Director - The truth is anyone can direct. It’s not much more complicated than that. What we help you understand is the craft of filmmaking so you can make good stories great!

  • Director of Photography - This is a big one and no single course is gonna give you everything you need but we’ll provide a solid foundation for both the technical and artistic basics of cinematography.

  • Editor - Finding a talented editor is one of the most difficult positions to fill on a film. You will see why as we pull back the curtain and show you the ins and outs of post-production.

  • Critic - The role of the movie critic has been around nearly as long as cinema itself. It is important to understand what makes a film great, how to analyze story and put a review into words.

  • Green Screen - If you’ve worked with green screen then you know how difficult it can be to pull a good key. After taking this course you’ll never shoot another bad composite.

  • Intro to Lighting - A companion course to Director of Photography, this course covers the technical and artistic basics of lighting design and the equipment you’ll need for that professional polish.

  • A Guide Copyright - In a day where content is continuously stolen, we believe a strong background in copyright law is essential. By taking this course you’ll know what your rights are and how to protect them.
