Learn how to work in the media, film and television industry with advice from professionals working in the business
Founded in 2019, the Indie Films Foundation is a non-profit industry organization dedicated to teaching students and other professionals the art, science and business of video, film, and television production.
It's not the technical details that stop first time filmmakers in their tracks. It is the bigger challenges that all filmmakers must deal with during pre-production and on the set. Our book takes a look at the practical side of filmmaking from the 30,000 foot level. Full of insights and lessons learned through years of experience, our book describes the real challenges of filmmaking by professionals who have been making films for years.
Learn how to avoid the mistakes that bring first time filmmakers to their knees, and avoid the stress, time and expense that drive young filmmakers crazy!
