Have some time on your hands? Filmmaker U is an online education series that brings the best craftspeople in the film business from behind the camera together to teach the next generation of filmmakers. Unlike many courses that focus on how to use and operate an editing application, Filmmaker U takes students inside the studio and into the mind of each instructor.

The “Master Film Editing with Brian Kates, ACE” workshop spans approximately 10 chapters and looks at working with footage, music, VFX and changes. Kates has worked on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Shortbus, and Lee Daniels’ The Butler, and has won two Emmys. Other courses examine sound design, mastering and color grading.

The courses are priced at just $99, affordable to both students and working individuals and LAPPG members will receive 20% off with code LAPPG.
