Smartphone cameras, click-and-drag video editing software, and countless free online forums and classes have made it easier than ever to create high-quality films on your own. However, if you want to take your flick to the next level and stretch your directorial muscles, you’ll need to explore the professional end of moviemaking and gain expert insight into industries like casting, cinematography and more. The Film Director Essentials Bundle packs hands-on learning and tips from the pros into four courses, setting you up for cinematic success.

What happens behind the scenes in Hollywood might not be flashy, but maintaining a well-oiled production machine is essential for creating stellar summer blockbusters and hip indie flicks. You’ll dive right in with the bundle’s Commercial Film Director course, which covers blocking, screen direction, common production mistakes and solutions, budgeting, advertising and more. A class with a professional casting director shows you how to find and negotiate with the best talent out there, five hours of lessons with an expert cinematographer teaches you how to perfectly frame your stars, and often-overlooked yet critical skills in lighting equipment and safety are highlighted in the Grip and Electric 101 course.

Gain the know-how to turn your filmmaking dreams into reality with the Film Director Essentials Bundle. You’ll get a year of access to 90 lessons for just $19 — a steal at 93% off the $316 retail price.
