The trusted community for ambitious filmmakers

Get access to the resources, connections, and environment you need to create powerful films and build a lasting career.


What Do You Want to Accomplish in Your Filmmaking Career?

Seriously, stop reading this and imagine it right now.

Do you want to...

Break into the lucrative world of commercial filmmaking and make a name for yourself?

Move up the ladder of the film industry and work on the highest profile projects?

Build an enjoyable, profitable business as a wedding, corporate, or non-profit filmmaker?

Excel in your job as an in-house filmmaker and finally get that big promotion?

Make films you’re genuinely proud to put out into the world?

Just imagine it. And let it sink in.

Feels good, huh?

Good news is it’s entirely possible.

The bad news is that it won’t be easy. But you already know that.

So, what’s standing between you and that ideal career you just imagined?

Chances are, it’s not “lack of information.”

Or “lack of access to people who are also interested in filmmaking.”

Thanks to the internet, you can learn anything you want.

And with blogs, forums, and groups, it’s never been easier to find people who share your interests.

There’s just one big problem...

Who you learn from and who you surround yourself with is actually what matters most. In other words, quality matters. A lot.

As a community of thousands of filmmakers, we’ve witnessed this time and time again.

Filmmakers who succeed in this tough business aren’t those who consume the most information. Or belong to the most facebook groups.

The Filmmakers Who Succeed Surround Themselves With Supportive, Driven People Who Push Them To Grow.

And of course, they put in the work — hard work.

That’s exactly why we built the Academy of Storytellers.

To give every ambitious filmmaker, anywhere in the world, access to the best resources, community, and education.

And that’s also why we made it insanely affordable.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.

First, we should talk about how we designed the Academy to help you transform your career in less time than you thought possible.

“Absolutely career changing”

When you're part of a community like this, it brings the people aspect back into it. And it's taught me that I don't want to be just a videographer or a guy with a camera, I want to be a guy who tells stories. And the method I express those stories happens to be a visual medium, and without the community of seeing what others are doing, I think it would be almost impossible.

What Your First Month Inside The Academy Will Look Like

Your first month inside the Academy will be full of breakthroughs and “a-ha” moments. That’s our promise.

But let’s back up a little bit.

When we launched the first version of the Academy of Storytellers back in 2015, it was all about providing world-class education.

We brought in some of the most talented, successful filmmakers we know, and had them teach courses on the craft, tech, and business of film.

These lessons are incredible, and you get immediate access to them the moment you sign up.

But we knew we could be doing more to help filmmakers get ahead.

Because education is only one piece of the puzzle of succeeding in film.

That’s why the Academy of Storytellers 2.0 incorporates two more vital pieces of that puzzle…

  1. Live group coaching every week to help you tackle your biggest obstacles and make real progress.
  2. Honest, in-depth feedback on your work to help you improve faster and more intelligently.

When you pair coaching and feedback with our quality education and community, you’ve got a potent mixture—one that you won’t find anywhere else.


LIVE Coaching Calls and Monthly Events

Weekly call tackle a specific topic, and we bring in working professionals and experts to help you break down barriers and get results.

Business & Creative Hot Seats

Hot Seats are group coaching calls built around the topics you need to master to succeed as a filmmaker. 

No generic “feel good” coaching here. Just clear, targeted advice from people who have been where you are and know how to make progress quickly..

Feedback & Film Critiques

When it comes to improving your skills, nothing is more effective than targeted feedback.

Submit your work to be critiqued by professionals. You’ll hear what you did well, what areas need work, and most importantly, exactly how to improve.


I have new skills and I can produce the films I want.”

The Academy was something I jumped on immediately, without hesitation.

Having this resource, that covers almost anything and everything I have a question on, has given me a lot more confidence and clarity on me being a filmmaker. It's definitely opened a lot more doors. I've been able to push myself creatively — wanting more from my filmmaking — and am also challenged to keep producing as much as I can, knowing that I have a skill set in me.

When you do find a community like the Academy, when you do find a set of friends or people that are out there to support you, there's nothing stopping you.

Plus 24/7 Access to a Thriving Community, Expert-led Education, And More!

The live calls and coaching are the secret sauce of the Academy. They’re going to help you make progress quickly. But we wanted to stack the deck in your favor even more, by giving you everything else you need in order to tackle your filmmaking goals.

An Engaged Community of Ambitious, Like Minded Filmmakers

When you surround yourself with filmmakers who are equally as ambitious and driven, you’re more likely to succeed.

That’s why community is such a huge aspect of the Academy of Storytellers. We wanted to make it as easy as possible to surround yourself with the best people.

No matter where you are in the world, you’ll be able to ask questions, get feedback on your work, find collaborators, and make filmmaking friends for life.

Ready To Level Up Your Films and Career?


“If you stop learning, you should hang it up.”

I had already been at it for many years when I became an Academy member in 2015. But there is always a lot to learn.

It’s wonderful for me to find a resource where I can watch other people explain how they did what they did and the kind of projects they are working on.

I'm really grateful The Academy's here, and I'm always impressed with the quality and the presentation of the content and I would highly recommend it to anyone who's trying to up their game.
