This is an all-encompassing guide for making an independent feature length movie. By the end of this course you will have the information you need to successfully make a feature film that you can distribute around the globe to be seen by millions of people. 

I'm sharing with you my experience as a veteran screeenwriter, director, producer and editor of 12 feature films. Normally film students pay a lot of money to learn this information at universities, and often all they really learn is cinema theory. 


Udemy Students tell me all the time that they learned more in this course than 4 years of film school.

  • tips for finishing the film to give it the professional look

  • thorough review of distribution options for your movie

  • and tons and tons of details about all the steps in between

The videos include lectures, demonstrations and examples illustrating the information I'm sharing. 

This course also includes sample spreadsheets, contracts, and a list of additional resources. You will get all the forms and resources I use to make a movie.

*** A special bonus video (Lecture 53) is included on filming with Covid-19 Safety Precautions. During the global pandemic it is possible to continue making films safely. The 24 minute video explains the basics of how filming adapts to safety precautions and how we can keep everyone healthy on our indie film productions.
