The Director's Film School

You've got your eyes set on film school. Maybe it's in LA or New York. You're gonna break into the industry and become a successful director!

Small problem.

The entertainment industry does not care about where you went to film school. They do care about what you can do. About what you've done. The size of your audience. Your credits on IMDb.

After school you must begin directing. But here's the thing — It's on your dime. Along with food, rent and everything else.

Those who don't plan for this end up losing years.

Some give up entirely.

Write & Direct provides a better way. It truly is the director's film school.
