Making your movie, your way.
- PIncrease access to film education
- PMake your film making process easier. The more skills you’re able to master yourself, the more possible all your film making goals become. If you can become a multi-talented filmmaker, the less reliant on others you are. You can get by with smaller crews, and smaller budgets, and feel more confident in your own skills as a creator.
Representation in the film industry matters immensely because seeing individuals who resemble you thriving in the industry fosters a sense of belonging and aspiration. When the industry is predominantly depicted by a singular group, it limits the perception of who can participate, inadvertently creating barriers. By showcasing diverse talents succeeding and enjoying their work in film, people from all backgrounds can begin to envision themselves breaking those stereotypes and pursuing their own cinematic dreams with confidence.
