Do you want to make better films, act on camera, and successfully navigate the entertainment industry?

Gorilla Film School is your resource to mastering the world of film.

How do you know if you’re in the right place? If any of these apply to you–

  • You have a movie playing in your mind but you haven't quite mastered the skills to make it the way you see it in your head
  • You aren't quite sure if you should be selling your film, putting it on the internet, or sending it out to festivals
  • You want to act on film, but have no clue how to find an agent, how to get great auditions, or how to make real money
  • You don't live in Hollywood, want to work in the entertainment industry, but don't know where to start
  • You need some help learning how the business works--contracts, agents, distribution, financing, and everything else that goes hand in hand
  • You have dealt with rejection, scams, or self-doubt about your role in the industry

Real, actionable advice you can use–even if you don’t live in Hollywood!

Let's face it, the vast majority of us don't live in Hollywood. Does that mean you can't make films, act on camera, or make a living in the entertainment industry? Of course not! Tens of thousands of people around the world do this every day, and we will show you how.

Unlike similar websites, our information doesn't come from some major studio director with access to multi-million dollar budgets, and it doesn't come from casting directors or agents that "only work with talent out of LA". You'll learn the tactics, techniques, and mindsets that REAL PEOPLE working in the entertainment industry use every day. These are the people that raise their own money to make films, find their own distribution, hustle to get the big auditions and bookings; the people that are living in big cities and small towns all around the world, fighting down in the trenches to make a living in this industry, and have the time of their lives doing it!

There's not a lot of information out there that real people can use. We know the lessons you'll learn here are practical because they come from people that do this work successfully every day. And because there's no other resource like Gorilla Film School, we know that we can give out 90% of what we know for free! What you see on this site is just the tip of the iceberg--we send out even more great lessons for FREE to our email subscribers.
