The entertainment industry does not care about your education.
What do they care about?
The movies you’ve made. The size of your audience. Your credits on IMDb.
This means after school you must begin directing movies. But here’s the thing and there’s really no getting around it: It’s on your dime.
Along with food, rent and everything else.
Those who don’t plan for this end up losing years in their pursuit of the craft.
Some give up entirely.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
To be a successful filmmaker you must learn the craft. But you can’t drain your bank account on tuition. You need money to buy gear and begin making movies.
This is what Write & Direct is all about.
Write & Direct is an online film school that will teach you how to make movies from start to finish. Step by step. Development through post production!
It is cohesive training designed to teach filmmaking in the best possible manner, at a pace customized for each individual.
During the Write & Direct core training you will complete a film that you can submit to film festivals and even get on IMDb. You’ll perform all positions from Writer to Gaffer, DP, Director, Editor and so much more.
The only way to move your career forward is to make movies.
However, most aspiring filmmakers can’t afford the day rates of experienced crew. When you learn how to do it all, you remove your dependency on others. You also become a more experienced director so that in the future you can better work with crew members.
Your primary instructor is Kyler Boudreau.
Kyler attended film school in Los Angeles in 2005 and witnessed the sobering reality of life after graduation. He worked as a PA on two studio films and then jumped into independent filmmaking as an editor.
After cutting a few feature length films, Kyler moved to writing and ultimately directing.
Filmmaking is his passion, with his latest production RECKONING scheduled for release in the fall of 2023.
Write & Direct is an online film school designed to maximize learning time.
Students move at their own pace through online courses. Assignments and quizzes ensure crucial information is understood and retained. A private community allows for discussion and questions where Kyler participates on a daily basis.
The core training is just the beginning!
