Hello, and welcome! My name is Jason Tomaric, and I'm a Los Angeles-based filmmaker. I've spent the past several years working with over 150 Academy Award and Emmy-winning filmmakers to help you learn from their knowledge and experiences. The result is, an online film school that takes you through every step of the filmmaking process. With over 110 hours of video content, thousands of illustrated articles, and hundreds of downloadable files, you will learn the skills and techniques from the masters for a fraction of the price of film school.

Speaking of film schools, over 125 of them – including UCLA, Yale, NYU, Emerson College, Full Sail, and Columbia College Chicago – use FilmSkills in the classroom. I'm excited to take you inside the industry and teach you how to improve your skills, get started in the industry, and learn the skills to succeed.
