Non-stop Filmmaking Education and Inspiration.


Fresh weekly tutorials, interactive webinars, lively discussions, downloadable templates, and so much more.

From pre-production to post-production—including cinematography, lighting, sound, editing, storytelling, and connecting with people—to the important but rarely discussed topics around running a sustainable and profitable business, we cover the entire gamut of filmmaking in the Academy.




And everything is taught by working filmmakers—such as Stillmotion, Joe Simon, Gnarly Bay, 31Films, and Ryan Booth—who day in, day out are out there telling amazing stories and running successful filmmaking businesses. 

Each week 2 brand new tutorials are released. And with 80+ that are already live, you've got a lot of binge watching to do. :)

But don't worry, Academy tutorials are bite-sized, entertaining, educationally sound, and immediately actionable.


"Y'all do an amazing job at boiling down a lot of complicated information into Oreo chunk sizes that are forever memorable and instantly usable."
