MovieMaker Magazine’s Film School of the Week

MovieMaker Magazine has featured the Mobile Film School as the “Film School of the Week”. Here what they have to say:

Getting an education in movie making can be tough - the best programs can be almost impossible to get into, and cost alone is enough of a deterrent for some. But what about those who have no access to a film school, or even the equipment they need to start making movies on their own? The Mobile Film School was founded with these people in mind, with the mission to reach out to underserved communities by bringing film school to them.
