Learn Fast. Learn Deep.

No time to waste.

Whether you're a professional trying to boost your skills or a film student learning the game, we understand how limited your time is in the 21st century.

That's why we strive to teach you everything you need to know and nothing you don't. Many of our courses run at under 15 minutes.

As deep as you need.

When you want to go deeper into a subject, we're ready for that to.

Whether it's a full-length class captured at our Hollywood training center or curated content gleaned from our vast library and around the web, we only curate content that's accurate and useful.

Survival of the savvy.

Filmmaking is as competitive as any other technology-focused business. That's why we invented our survival guides. They teach you exactly what you need to know to be useful in an application or technology in around 30 minutes.

Need to edit an image in Photoshop? Cut something together in FCP X for the first time? Give us 30 minutes and we'll get you up to speed.

Coffee Break Film School (CBFS)

How much can you learn in the length of a latte?

We understand that not everyone has the time or resources to attend a full degree film program. That's why we created Coffee Break Film School (CBFS), a complete video-based training course covering the essentials of film: from script to production to post. Each lesson is a densely compressed learning experience with a typical running time of 15 minutes or less. About the time it would take you to sip an overpriced latte.

Will you learn everything there is to know about a subject in 15 minutes? Of course not. But we believe you'll learn the foundational, important stuff that will not only make your movies look and sound great, but will provide a platform for deeper exploration into the art and science of filmmaking.

Combined with our unique visual glossary of terms, interviews with industry luminaries, and library of online events, you have just the right amount of information to turn your filmmaking aspirations into reality.

Survival Guides

What you need to stay alive. And nothing else.

Ever wanted to learn an app but discovered you don't have the spare 40 hours that the available training requires to get you up to speed? Then you're the reason we came up with our Survival Guides. These guides focus on the core skills you need to become useful in an application. We're not going to teach you everything there is to know about the app, but we teach you how to get the important things done, and provide a foundational understanding that will enable you to easily learn specific tools as you need them.

Want more depth? We offer extended learning experiences too (in our classes section), but we think you'll be pleasantly surprised by how much you can get done after running through one of our survival guides.
