    If you fall in the following categories then this class (or the dvd set) is probably NOT FOR YOU:

    1) You're very rich and can afford to spend tens of thousands on a whim without a problem.

    2) You're a purist who is concerned about "contaminating" your art... You walk around with your nose held up and keep mumbling names like Kurosawa or Almodovar... You want and NEED TO SUFFER FOR YOUR ART (a masochist basically)

    3) You're not into making money. If you're fine with 10 years from now still working at McD flippin' fries to earn enough money for your 10th film which will have an audience of your family... and possibly some rural film festival with an attendance of 15 people.

    4) You think to yourself "What is this business - schmizzness stuff... I just want to make art, be an artist that walks around with a scarf around his neck in the middle of summer and a beret."

    If you DO NOT find yourself in the above categories then this course is FOR YOU.

    Instead of pointless arguments let me give you something that I DID NOT LEARN from my years at film school that you can get FREE on his site by going to his "3 Minute Film School" clip and watch him scream to you: "DON'T MAKE SHORTS"

    I wish I had somebody scream that to me in film school and get my head out of my behind from feeling like a cool "artiste" to the business of movies, without which you'll end giving up your passion when you realize that you have to pay rent and eat, and making 'artistic shorts' is only good for pumping up your ego. Can you pay your rent with ego? Can you eat on ego? I think not.

    Instead of learning this simple thing, I (and all my colleagues) did what 99.9% of filmschool people do, I did a short. What did that accomplish? Nothing..

    That's one example of simple good advice... but he gives literally hundreds of such things.

    I've paid a lot of money for learning... Some things were hits but most were misses. This is a HIT. If a few hundred bucks is problematic for you, then you're in for a whole lot of HURT and an independent filmmaker.

    Even if you go intern on a set, nobody will explain the business to you, so you're better off doing this course first so you can read between the lines and learn what's going on.

    By NO MEANS should you understand this to be the end of the line education for you, but it is a fantastic and essential start for most people (exception being those listed at the top of my post).

    It balances out the woo-woo books and schools on filmmaking that put your head up in the clouds and don't expose you to the BRUTAL REALITIES OF THE BUSINESS OF FILMMAKING. I've learned that the hard way.

    Remember, artists that don't understand the realities of filmmaking and ONLY worry about the artsy-fartsy aspects end up hungry and giving up their dreams.
