Our Philosophy: Make Filmmaking Fun!

Easy to Learn, Fun to Use 

We teach the essence of filmmaking. With 40 years of industry experience, we have created a fast, simple, effective and exciting method of filmmaking which is easy to learn.

 

More Shooting, Less Talking 

We emphasize hands-on exercises instead of textbooks. We call it filmmaking, not film studies.

 

Big Ideas, Small Budget

We believe that kids should be able to make movies without spending their allowances. A movie can be good without having to spend a lot of money. With the right skills and a small crew, our students will learn how to make a film with ease.
