About Filmmaker U: Before the age of digital mentorship played a key role in film crews, post crews, and filmmaker’s career development. Places like the cutting room were hubs for passing on techniques, ideas, war stories, teamwork, and developing relationships that would help you evolve your career. You would move from trainee to assistant, and eventually, the day would come where you became a full-fledged DP, Editor, Filmmaker, or any other position in the film industry. Pro’s who had worked years and were coming close to the end of their career delighted in sharing the knowledge, techniques, tricks, and ideas, they had learned over the decades. However, with this digital age, young film professionals are thrust into positions without having the chance to learn from those at the top of their game. Filmmaker U was created to help fill this void in the modern day film industry. This online education series will bring the best in the business from behind the camera, to any aspiring media artist who can no longer obtain this type of apprenticeship. Our recent classes include Oscar-winning Sound Designer Eugene Gearty ("Life of Pi," "Hugo," "The Irishman"), Colorist Eric Whipp ("Mad Max: Fury Road", "Happy Feet 2"), Oscar-nominiated Editor/Director Sam Pollard ("4 Little Girls," "When the Levees Broke"), Cinematographer/Director Kirsten Johnson (Citizen Four," "Farenheit 9/11," "Cameraperson"), and multi Emmy-winner Brian Kates, ACE ("Treme," "The Savages," "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".)
