Learn the Art of Filmmaking

Improve your craft with the industry's most complete filmmaking courses developed by filmmakers for filmmakers

Learn from filmmakers whose work you see every day

I’m Jason Tomaric. As an Emmy-winning filmmaker and educator, I’ve met too many people who struggle to break into the industry, talented filmmakers buried under massive college debt, and content creators tired of scouring YouTube for quality training. That’s why I created a more affordable alternative to film school where you learn directly from master filmmakers. 

Over 150 industry professionals who have been honored with over 70 Academy Awards, Emmys, BAFTAs, and Golden Globes partnered with me to guide you step-by-step through the filmmaking process.

Whether you want to make better independent films, TV commercials, documentaries, or industrial videos, join the inner circle of master filmmakers whose work has grossed tens of billions of dollars around the world.

Do you teach filmmaking at a university, high school, film commission, or production company? Check out FilmSkills Academic where you can build your own fully-branded online film training program.

FilmSkills is WORLD CLASS. I don’t know how you did it Jason, but thank you for building such an incredible site.  I never thought I’d be able to learn from the directors, producers, cinematographers – basically everybody behind my favorite TV shows. The lessons are so concise without the fluff. Thanks to you, I got my first paid production job.  Thanks Jason!

THANK YOU JASON! I bought your book, “Filmmaking,” and learned so much. Then I found FilmSkills and it seriously blew my mind. Thanks to you and your incredible team. My productions improved dramatically. I nearly doubled my clients, and am earning about $2000 a DAY.

I decided to drop out of engineering school and take the plunge as a filmmaker. I didn’t want to start over, so I was stoked when I found FilmSkills. ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. You literally tapped the Hollywood inner circle and have brought so much valuable knowledge to us aspiring newbies. If I ran a film school, I’d be scared. FilmSkills is a powerhouse.
