Why You Should Take Filmmaking Lessons
If you want to become the next great Hollywood filmmaker such as Steven Spielberg or George Lucas, you might want to look into taking some filmmaking lessons. Taking lessons will help you a great deal as you learn the ins and outs of the movie industry. You will find there are many businesses and schools that can help you out.
There are many filmmaking classes and courses available throughout the country at various colleges and universities. There are also some film-specific schools around. You should be able to find quite a few by conducting an internet search for 'filmmaking schools.' Online schools are becoming popular as you can learn at your own pace.
You can take filmmaking lessons in person individually as well as in a class setting. You can also take online filmmaking classes and courses that teach you with a series of videos. If you're serious about becoming a filmmaker you'll need to take several courses. These will deal with screenwriting, directing, producing, casting, cinematography, and editing etc.
Many movies are made with the help of computer-generated effects and animation these days, so you may need to spend some money on special types of computer software. These may help you out a great deal when it comes to creating special effects.
The courses generally require you to combine several different careers all into one. Independent filmmakers need to know each and every aspect and skill of making a movie. This will prepare them in case they need to make one from scratch all by themselves.
The cost of taking filmmaking lessons will vary. It really depends on what type of lessons you're taking, personal or over the internet. Personal lessons will generally cost you more. You should do some research on any company or school who is offering to teach you to make sure they're reputable and qualified.
Greatest film training tool I have seen in my twenty years
"There is a lot of advice out there that you can read off the net or in a book but these DVD's show you step by step how to SHOOT THE MOVIE THAT YOU SEE IN YOUR MIND. This is the greatest film training tool I have seen in my twenty years of professional work."

Blown away and wondering where you've been!
I have just spent several hours viewing parts of this tutorial. I can not believe the detail and clear thinking that has gone into putting so much information into a form that can be successfully grasped by anyone in the field. From camera angles, lighting, focus, depth to acting tips, time saving, budgeting, camera equipment etc : the scope and depth of this course is far beyond the nuts and bolts that usually pass for master film making 101.
The generosity of the instructors in bringing together such complete information is unusual, and certainly will be appreciated and absorbed for generations by the Industry.
I am inspired, and know I will do better!

Great instructional series
Finally! I've wondered why a straight-forward film lesson DVD is so hard to come across on the film medium itself.
You can only read so many books about shooting until you have to see it implemented for yourself. I haven't watched all of the instructional courses yet, but what I've seen so far I have gotten a lot from.
I appreciate the candor and the "it's actually pretty easy-here's how you can do this on a less-than-extravagant budget" attitude of the instructors.
I'd recommend this for students who are looking for a hands-on approach to film making that takes some of the mystery out of the whole process.
This is a good addition to any film degree, since it shows you how to put all of those books you've read and terms you've learned into a real product.
