Filmmaking is very hands-on, so how can I learn it on the internet?
AKA, an Online Film School We've Perfected Over 10 Years and Counting
As a student at Lights Film School, you'll learn the foundational knowledge and skills you need to get started in the craft and become a better filmmaker. This happens through our fine-tuned curriculum and bonus materials - and with Premium Membership, a plethora of social features to keep you inspired, on track, and engaged.
That said, the nitty-gritty, nuts-and-bolts process of actually putting your learning into practice - of executing your film projects - rests on your shoulders, since we’re not physically there with you.
But for our Premium Members, ongoing community and individualized "checkpoints" in the form of assignment feedback helps ensure you're doing well. We're all about providing that valuable interaction and guidance alongside our in-depth filmmaking training, so that you never feel like you're out there on your own!
