Who is this for?

Anyone who wants to direct movies. If your interest lies in editing, sound design or any other specific aspect of the craft, this isn't the training for you. Write & Direct does cover these areas, but this training is designed for those who want to write and direct narrative film.

Should I attend a normal film school?

Film school will not land you an industry job. The primary purpose of school is to train you on the craft. Your total cost of pursuing the craft of filmmaking is the cost of tuition combined with rent, food, gear and filmmaking expenses post graduation. Write & Direct helps you learn the craft without depleting your bank account. Plus you'll learn more than many who go to traditional film schools.

What will I learn?

How to make a movie from start to finish. And much more! You will begin with development and learn the conventions of story telling. Once you have a solid foundation in story (which many film school graduates actually don't have) you'll move on to other aspects of the craft including pre-production, production and post production. Every detail is covered from equipment and lighting to editing, sound design and color grading. All from the vantage point of finding success as a write and director.

Will I make a movie?

Yes! Write & Direct is hands on. You will decide on an idea and take it all of the way through end credits. Once your film is complete you can submit to online film festivals and even get it on IMDb!

Do I need equipment?

Yes. Specific equipment must be purchased in order to complete this training. But here's the thing: It's the same equipment film school graduates must purchase after school in order to pursue the craft, regardless of where they attend film school.

I only want to direct. Why learn more than that?

A director is responsible for every aspect of the story. The more you understand, the better director you'll be. But even more important than this, in order to get established as a modern filmmaker you must begin making movies. And unless you can pay crew to be there every day, you must have the skill to execute in all areas of the craft in order to continue your forward progression.

Who are the instructors?

Kyler Boudreau is the founder and primary instructor for the Write & Direct training. After attending film school in Hollywood, Kyler worked on both studio and independent films in various positions including actor, editor, producer, sound designer, writer and director. You can view more at IMDb.

What's included with the education?

In addition to the online film school courses, students also have access to the private Write & Direct community to receive filmmaking support during and after completion of the training. Students will have access to updated and new classes as well as private access to the soon to be launched Write & Direct Studio platform.

Can I get a refund?

Definitely. We are here to help aspiring filmmakers realize their dreams faster. If you don't think this training will do that for you, you have 30 days to evaluate and notify us that you wish to receive a refund.

My teen wants to make movies. Would this training work?

We don't have a minimum age requirement. If you would like to discuss your child's situation specifically, please use our contact form to get in touch!

Will I have a degree after completion?

No. Write & Direct is not an accredited educational institution. Hollywood doesn't hire based on degree. They hire based on other criteria like skill, credits and audience.

Do you want to make movies?

If your answer is yes, Write & Direct is your inciting incident. It's your catalyst in the journey of becoming a filmmaker. There's nothing else quite like it.
