Question by Palaneseya: Has anyone ever heard of the online school called “Online Film School”? Does anyone know if it’s legit?
I saw this website called onlinefilmschool.com does anyone know if it’s legit online film school and if so, is all that they teach you enough for one to be a experinced filmmaker?

Don’t do it. Even if it is a legit school, you should really opt for a real school. You know why?
It’s because filmmaking is all about hands-on learning. Sure, you can learn at the computer, but you kno what you’ll probably be doing?
Watching a movie, reading a chapter from a textbook, and then analyzing the movie for things like mise en scene, lighting, characterization, idealogies, etc…
Instead, a real school will offer you: an enviroment of other filmmakers that you can collaborate with, all the equipment you’d need, etc…The best thing is that you can forge strong friendships in college, and if your friends make it big, they’ll most likely get you a job in their movie too.
