In this program, we cover everything from the very basics of what gear to buy and how to use it, to advanced cinematography techniques, my full editing workflow (on both Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro X), and the steps it takes to run a successful business! The curriculum currently consists of over 300+ training videos (50+ hours) and I add new videos every month to keep the learning relevant and up-to-date.

As a bonus, twice a year, we hold themed video contests for a chance to win awesome prizes. Our most recent winner received a Devin Graham Glidecam ($850 value). These contests encourage members create content and learn from one another's video entries.
Every Friday, I select members' videos to review in-depth. I break down what was done well and what can be improved upon, helping you increase production value and land higher paying clients.
One of the biggest perks of a traditional film school is networking with other talented filmmakers. That's why we've created a private Facebook page designated for members to collaborate, share work, give/receive feedback, ask questions, share articles, and learn and grow together.
Having purchased many online courses myself, I believe Full Time Filmmaker is the most efficient and informative online course available, giving you everything you NEED to know, without all the fluff. No other course offers regular video contests, feedback to student videos, and personal access to a practicing professional, who regularly adds NEW content to keep the learning relevant and up-to-date. This industry evolves so fast, it's nice to know your mentor is evolving too.
Did I mention that all our members are eligible for Adobe Creative Cloud Student Discounts? This perk alone saves you $360 a year in editing software savings! Members also save 50% OFF Red Giant software, 10% OFF Glidecams, Zhiyun Crane 2s, Rhino Sliders, Westcott Lights, and more!
Join my FREE online training where I reveal my TOP 10 SECRETS to achieving cinematic shots, and share with you the exact 6 steps I took to start making money.
Full Time Filmmaker costs 5x less than a semester at film school, with 5x the value!
