Welcome, and thank you for considering taking my classes. This workshop is intended for the serious aspiring filmmaker and the working professional. Many years of teaching students at all levels of experience led me to create this fully customized workshop, tailor-made to your specific needs. Save time and money all while learning on the same level with the best film programs.

Sign-up to reserve your spot with no commitment:

  1. Enter your email address to join the waitlist. You are making no commitment by joining the waitlist but you will secure your place in line for when a group opens.


  2. You will receive a full menu of subjects to review and a link to a questionnaire requesting information about yourself and what you seek to learn or achieve, as well as your intended timeframe and availability.

  3. Based on your answers and the answers of others, you will receive all workshop options relevant to you with pricing. Just pick the one you like! Prices range from $75 to $100 per hour for two-hour lessons.

Unless otherwise noted, all lessons are in groups of no more than 5 people, in-person, and take place at a living room setting with either a very large monitor or projector screen. The duration of a lesson is at least two hours and can go up to three, depending on the participant's needs and involvement. Lessons are priced as two hours, even if they extend longer. Handouts, references, recommendations and refreshments are provided. All services are subject to the terms and conditions.

Workshops in New York City will be first to open. Other cities will open based on demand, as well as Zoom sessions offered if no physical workshop is possible. Capacity is limited, so join the wait list to secure your spot!
