How much does the filmmaking course cost?

The cost of the filmmaking course depends on the enrollment level you choose. We offer three different enrollment levels:

  • Student Level - $499*
  • Academic Level - $599*
  • Scholar Level - $649*

For all three levels, the enrollment fee is a one-time fee that grants one year of access to the course.

All three levels include full access to the course, platform, and community. However, the Academic Level adds access to our rotating roster of Lab Chats, live two-to-three hour lectures led by our teachers in a chat-based classroom setting. They’re a great way to get to know the Lights community. Topics include:

  • The Screenplay and Film Production
  • Character Development
  • Dialogue and Storytelling
  • Visual Storytelling
  • Defining the Director
  • The Science and Art of Sound in Cinema
  • Defining the Documentary
  • Building Cinematic Suspense

The Scholar Level includes Lab Chat access as well as exclusive access to the Online Theatre, an interactive venue for monthly screenings of short films. Here, the group comes together to break down successful short films, drawing on everything they've learned from the course materials so far. It's a behind-the-scenes window into professional productions designed to build your powers of film analysis that invites fun, free-flowing discussion with fellow students and teachers!

Of course, your purchase comes with an unconditional 15-day, 100% money-back guarantee, so you can try Lights Film School risk free. For more information, feel free to check out our home page.

*All prices are in USD. Consult a currency calculator to determine the cost of the filmmaking course in your currency, and where appropriate, be sure to check with your payment method about international transaction fees.
