Shawn Nelson

“The ability to learn time tested ideas and combine them with the latest advancements is a trick, and I appreciate that ICA is exactly tackling this.”

Shawn NelsonDirector / Writer / Filmmaker, Cinetechure
Danny Salazar

“Indie Cinema Academy, has been a refresher for my career and the further development of creating my own look as an artist. One major thing I can take away from this training is the confidence it gives me as a cinematographer.

Danny SalazarCinematographer, Reveal Motion Pictures
Samuel Blowes

I’m really enjoying your tutorials. I learn so much in such a short amount of time, whereas it feels like I have to watch an entire Lynda.com 6 hour tutorial and only glean one or two things I didn’t know.

Tricks of the Trade

This is the RIGHT place if…

  • You are new to filmmaking
    If you have little to no experience and you want to start your filmmaking career on the right foot.
  • You know the basics
    If you are familiar with your camera, but you need to grow in your understanding of cameras & lighting.
  • You have experience
    If you are tired of the basic “how to” content on the web and you want to learn from professionals in the industry.
  • You’re becoming a professional
    If you are looking to hone your skills & knowledge base as you grow your career as an artist & filmmaker.

This is the WRONG place if…

  • All you want is a quick fix
    It’s our job to train you today & prepare you for the future. If you are looking for some secret recipe, this is not the place for you.
  • You are not open to change
    Technology expands and changes, that’s a fact of filmmaking. If you are not willing to grow, adjust, and accept new approaches to filmmaking then this isn’t the time to join.
  • You are not committed to ongoing growth
    We haven’t arrived. We still have a long way to go. This is why we are committed to continuing our own education. If you don’t hold that same value, please save your money as this will not be a beneficial experience.
