While we would try to make an effort to adhere to the new requirements, their new policies are just way too much to meet given that these classes are over 2 years old. But here’s the good news: These classes will be migrated to a new online learning platform starting next month. Once we find a new home, we will make an announcement ASAP.
For the time being, you can still enjoy these classes as well as last year’s Indie Directing Film School until Skillshare decides to remove them all together. I thank all the students who engaged in the classes since 2019 and I hope we can continue educating aspiring filmmakers further very soon.

To help aspiring filmmakers separate good scripts from bad ones, how to translate the script into shots with a specific vision, how to communicate with actors and crew, and what a director does after production wraps.
