You don't need years of expensive film school to learn all the basic knowledge to be a filmmaker. Many of the most respected filmmakers in the world have stated that all the facts you need to make it as a filmmaker can be learned in a few days. Here are some of the top industry professionals that never got a film degree:

"I think the most important thing if you're an aspiring film-maker is to get rid of the 'aspiring'... You shoot it, you put your name on it, you're a film-maker." - James Cameron

Filmmaking's best kept secret!

Learn the same way many of the top filmmakers in Hollywood learned.

The most respected instructional product in the film industry is Dov Simens' 2-Day Film School DVD. 16 one hour lessons are the equivalent of 4 years of practical film school. All the facts, none of the fluff!

Taking this course changed my life. Let it change yours.

  • Start making films instead of learning useless theory.
  • Do it your way, at your pace. Do what you're interested in while you save years and thousands of dollars.
  • You will get just the training you need as fast as you need it.
  • Your friends and family may not believe you until they see your name in the credits on the big screen

JUST UPDATED FOR 2015

Dozens of important new techniques you need to know to succeed as a filmmaker in today's Hollywood. You won't learn these anywhere else ... even at the most expensive film schools. But you have to know how to do them right.

  • Kickstarter - Strangers will pay you to make your film
  • Raise $50,000 to $5,000,000 - It has never been easier
  • Shoot 3D - It's important and easy. Learn how.
  • Government programs, grants, credits and rebates
  • Product Placement - Get paid to show products
  • New Low-Budget Agreements - Get great actors for cheap
  • Digital Filmmaking - Best cameras and formats
  • New Distribution Channels - Apple, iTunes, Hulu, Netflix
  • Over 200 example screenplays - Write stories like the pros
  • And many, many more insider techniques no one else is teaching

By the time you would have completed the first semester of film school you will already be a filmmaker.

Dov S-S Simens' Film School DVD This set of DVDs contains the complete, legendary 2-day filmschool class that Quentin Tarantino, Spike Lee and hundreds of other top filmmakers credit with starting their careers.

"Inspiration! Why waste 4 years at a film school? I took Dov's 2-Day Film School and launched my career as a writer who controls his scripts." - Quentin Tarantino


If you can't attend in person then view these 16 hours of DVDs to learn all the basics of being an independent film producer.

Sure, it costs more than a book but way less than one class at UCLA film school.

Dov is no nonsense as he presents the real, honest deal on producing films. Everything to inspire you to go from screenwriting, to directing, to editing, to a sold film. You don't need a film degree.

What are you waiting for?
