Would you prefer a guided online course?

For a more structured learning experience, or if you are interested in all the lessons in a specific subject, check out our online courses.

Questions? We have Answers!

Both subscriptions and courses access the same lessons, however subscriptions let you explore the lessons you want. You can watch some directing tutorials, then brush up on your lighting, and maybe watch a lesson on how to market your movie.

The Bronze and Silver subscriptions let you choose a fixed number of lessons from our content library each month, and the Gold Subscription unlocks our entire content library.

Online Courses feature all the lessons in a particular subject, and may also include projects, quizzes, and award a customized Certificate of Completion with your name!

If you want to learn your way, we recommend a subscription.  If you want a more structured learning experience in a particular subject, we suggest an online course.  They are two different ways to access the same content.

Any lessons you choose will remain unlocked as long as your subscription is active, and you can watch them as many times as you want! If you purchase a Gold Subscription, you will have access to all the current and new lessons we release for 12 months after you join. Subscriptions are all about giving you the flexibility to watch what you what, when you want, as many times as you want.

Most lessons feature a 15-30 minute video taught by Hollywood filmmakers, illustrated tutorials, and in many instances, downloadable contracts, forms, and examples. You can learn more about lessons here.

Absolutely!  Before you buy, you can click the “Learn More” buttons above to access the subscription page. At the bottom of the page, click on the lesson to open its preview content. 

When you subscribe, you will have the opportunity to preview each lesson before you unlock it.

You can cancel your subscription at any time. You will still have access to your licensed lessons until the end of the current billing cycle, however there are no refunds once your credit card is charged for the next billing cycle.

Yes!  If you cancelled your subscription and are still in the active billing cycle, then you can resume your subscription without interruption. However if you cancel and your billing date passes, you will lose access to your previously unlocked lessons and will have to re-join.

No problem. Any unused lessons will roll over to the next month.  For example, if you purchase the Silver Subscription (15 lessons each month), and in January you only unlock 10, then in February you can unlock your 15 lessons plus the 5 from the previous month.

Yes! Right now, you will get a special discount code to purchase Final Draft for 60% off the purchase price.
