"Life-changing. Seb gave me the confidence to make my film, and the motivation to keep going. The modules being in bite-size chunks means I can dip in and out alongside my full-time job."
“More detail than my film degree, summed up better, taught in a more engaging way, for a fraction of the cost. The story section gave me so many light bulb moments of things I hadn't grasped at uni."
"Learning from Seb's experience and feedback is worth more than any price tag. I can relate it to my work, take on more responsibility, and grow in an industry I'm truly passionate about."

Do I need expensive equipment?
No. Don't worry, you don’t need lots of expensive filmmaking gear to learn the skills taught in the course. But to put them into action, you will need a camera. It doesn’t need to cost you lots of money, you could borrow a friend's DSLR or even just use a smartphone for now. Whatever you go for, it's how you use it and the quality of your story that matters most.
Do I need to learn every skillset?
The course teaches you every stage of filmmaking, but you don't need to master every skillset. If you love storytelling and producing, say, but filming isn’t your thing, you can bring a videographer on board. And our online community will help you do that. We suggest you do all the modules though, as the more you understand each stage, the more confident you’ll be - and the better your film will be too.
How long can I access the content?
For life! You buy the course with one upfront payment and it's a lifetime membership, which means you can access all the current and future content for life. Your membership will never expire. This means you're free to go at your own pace, watch the videos as many times as you like, and revisit modules whenever you need a refresher.
