Filmmakers! Increase Confidence On Set & Propel Your Career Forward

written by Shane Hurlbut, ASC

Think about this for a moment.  When you walk on set and you are being asked to do something that you have not done before, how does this make you feel? Exhilarated, confused on the next steps, inspired, over your head? All of these are emotions that fuel my passion for trailblazing, but this comes with having a foundation so that your uncomfortable feeling is amazing and grounded, and you can seize the day and say, “I GOT THIS.” You do not have this response without training, or that foundation of techniques and skills to pull from. Consider it like an assortment of painting tools. You know what each of the brushes do. You also know how to mix the colors. That gives you the confidence required to complete the canvas.

The interviews you are about to hear are excerpts taken from our October 2016 Filmmaking Workshop. Hands-on experience would be an understatement. Take a look at the team effort as they head up an 18K.

They were immersed, put in the fire of what it is like to be on set, and being held to a time line.

We don’t sit in chairs and discuss theory.

We are on our feet, moving, operating, setting, snapping, and laying the foundation of the creation process while learning why we do the things we do as well as the how we do the things we do.

This November 11 – 13,  I am offering you an in person experience that will do exactly that.

Now, you can say that you cannot afford it, that the price is too high, that the timing is not right. These are roadblocks, obstructions that you are putting in your way. If this course changes your mindset, gives you confidence that you never had and a foundation to build on that increases your day rate and moves you into a whole new pool of clients that then changes your life, what are you waiting for???

I wish I had had something like this when I was starting out as a young Gaffer or Assistant Camera person. I see how long it took me to get to where I am now and I feel I would have easily cut that time in half if I had invested in myself and not that grip truck or 4K par, but there was nothing like this available, so I invested in gear. You see, the world has changed, more options, more room for growth and much more content that needs to be created.

We pride ourselves in providing online and in person education to change your life.  Period!  We do this with an incredible team of passionate filmmakers and technicians. We do it with love, commitment to excellence, and the core value that investing in your future is far more productive than a new piece of gear.

It’s very simple. I will see you in November!  Sign up today!
