Are you an aspiring filmmaker who has no clue how to get started making your first movie? Are you frustrated waiting for it to happen and just want to say action already? What if your a million miles away from Hollywood and live out in the middle of no where? That all changes now! This course has been designed to get you rolling on your very first movie from anywhere without the need of Hollywood or a lot of money. My name is Mike and I have been a filmmaker for over twenty years. To date, I have made over fifteen films and have written forty screenplays. It’s my passion and I love making movies! In the beginning I had no clue how to make a movie. I didn’t have Internet access, I was a high school student, and I had absolutely no connections to Hollywood or anyone in the business. As a matter of fact I was living on the complete opposite side of the country from La La Land! All I knew was that I wanted to make movies. One night my frustrations reached their peak and I had enough of the dreaming and waiting for something to happen. I decided right then and there that I was going to make my first movie and I did so the very next day. By the time that year was over I actually made my first TWO films! Both were full length features. So how did I go from being an aspiring filmmaker, with ZERO knowledge of filmmaking, to actually making my first movie? That’s what this course is all about and by the time you finish the final lesson you will have made your first movie! Thanks to the 21rst century and technology that is now easily available to us, making movies is so much doable than it was when I started. With just a smart phone you can make an epic that rivals a Hollywood film! It’s is possible and talented filmmakers are proving that everyday. You just need to have a great story to tell and the right knowledge and tools to move forward. To dream is great, and all artists do it, but a dream is just a dream unless you actually do something to make it real. Your time has come to make that dream a reality! To get started, you will learn how to come up with your story and then how to turn that into a screenplay. Before you move onto the next lesson you will write a short story that will become your first movie. From there you will learn how to budget it, raise funds, produce it, casting, and even how to make props. The biggest lesson you will learn with pre-production is how to do it all for less money. I have become known in my circles for producing films for way less than others. I actually caught the attention of a huge Hollywood Film and Television company who was interested in me producing a network prime-time television show and a multi-picture deal! They were impressed with how I made my films for little money. Here you will learn how to replicate that. Once you learn pre-production we then go into the production itself. We cover everything from directing to actors, lighting, the camera angles as well as feeding your team, signing releases and perhaps getting them to work for free! It’s easier than you think. Finally we move onto post. You will learn some basic tips on adding CGI, musical soundtrack, video editing, and how and where to release your completed film such as film festivals, Amazon, DVD, Blu-Ray, etc. Now this is not a course about camera settings, lighting types, or how to operate film equipment. It won’t really over those topics. This is all about getting you out of the dream stage and into the reality of actually making your first film. This course is designed to inspire you and show you how to get going with funds or with very little. This course is designed to be understanding and give you a foundation to build your film career. There is a lot to learn, but by the time this course ends, you will FINALLY have made your first movie! This course is mostly designed for those who have little to basic knowledge of filmmaking, If you are more advanced, but still want to take this course, you may learn some tips and tricks of things you didn’t think of before. The biggest requirement to taking any course with me is to have an open mind and know you are here to learn. If you have been yearning to make a movie now is your chance to finally make your dream come true. I’ll see you on the inside!
