An Education on Your Terms, at Your Pace
Understanding Our "Outcomes-Based" Approach
Many of our students have busy schedules: they juggle work, school, and family responsibilities. They’re from all around the world in different timezones. They have approximately 1,000,000,000,000 things competing for their attention and OMG the cat is scratching at the couch and you forgot to turn off the tea kettle and look at all of those email notifications! 🤯
We get it and sympathize. Life can be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve developed Lights Film School with flexibility in mind. Our online film school has been specifically designed to let everyone move on their time at their own unique pace. You shouldn’t have to choose between learning and leading the rest of your life. We believe strongly in the principle of an “outcomes-based education” as opposed to a “time-based education”. Which is to say, we’d rather you structure your studies around your obligations, and then when you have time to dedicate to learning, you give us 100%. This results in high-quality work completed out of focus and passion.
Over the years, we've found that most students complete their studies in 3 - 6 months, but you have access to Lights Film School's foundational features for life. This includes access to all 6 modules of Lights Film School’s core curriculum and associated features, including progress tracking, hands-on exercises, bonus media libraries, downloadable workbooks, and completion certificate eligibility.
Once you're a student, you have the option of adding Premium Membership to your enrollment for a nominal yearly fee, which will unlock a host of social features. As a bonus, Premium Membership includes a Teacher Feedback Bundle, valid for one year from the date Premium Membership gets added. This provides plenty of time for you to get teacher feedback on all five assignments built into the curriculum. It's also possible to commission an extra review à la carte, if your bundle expires or if you simply want additional assignment feedback later.
The bottom line is this: Lights Film School has been purpose-built from the ground up to adapt to you, not the other way around.
