My passion is making films, and my mission is to help others make films.
For almost 20 years, I have worked with hundreds of students teaching them how to make professional-looking movies with no money. During the day, I have taught people who knew nothing about filmmaking the basics and advanced techniques of screenwriting, cinematography, editing, directing, producing, and much more. During nights and weekends, I spent time with my family (of course) and then worked on doing exactly what I was teaching - making everything from corporate videos, commercials, short films, educational videos, feature films, and directing hundreds of live multi-camera shows.
I couldn't find a single source of material that covered all of the areas of filmmaking that I teach, so I decided to write my own material and teach from it. I study films, take film classes, read film books, watch interviews and study all the material that I can, and then I would put it to practice in a no-budget scenario and tweak it so that it is actually applicable for a filmmaker with little means.
Not having a big (or any) budget to make a professional-looking film is no excuse anymore.
This site, www.thunderrockfilmschool.com, is dedicated to educating filmmakers in a real and usable way to create the best films possible. I will be adding lots of free material as well as offering the books that I am finishing soon.
Let's make movies, and live dream!
