Multi-tier Courses

Consider us your Hollywood sherpas

Working alone or in a group, our instructional workflow combines entertainment and education into a single package that makes learning fun again.  With twelve fully interactive courses that will guide students through the filmmaking process from development to distribution.

Our courses are designed to give users an in-depth look at many of the crew positions on a film.  Working together or as individuals, students follow character pathways as they discover for themselves what roles best fit them.

Writer

A great script is the foundation for any good film.  It’s also one of the most elusive of crafts.  We’ll explain how it’s done and how to get you off on the right foot.

Director of Photography

This is a big one and no single course is gonna give you everything you need but we’ll provide a solid foundation for both the technical and artistic basics of cinematography.

Green Screen

If you’ve worked with green screen then you know how difficult it can be to pull a good key.  After taking this course you’ll never shoot another bad composite.

Producer

There is a reason the producer receives the award for Best Picture.  It’s a big job and we’ll bring Oscar winning producers to the classroom to tell you how it’s done.

Editor

Finding a talented editor is one of the most difficult positions to fill on a film.   You will see why as we pull back the curtain and show you the ins and outs of postproduction.

Intro to Lighting

A companion course to Director of Photography, this course covers the technical and artistic basics of lighting design and the equipment you’ll need for that professional polish.

Director

The truth is anyone can direct.  It’s not much more complicated than that.  What we help you understand is the craft of filmmaking so you can make good stories great!

Critic

The role of the movie critic has been around nearly as long as cinema itself.  It is important to understand what makes a film great, how to analyze story and put a review into words.

A Guide Copyright

In a day where content is continuously stolen, we believe a strong background in copyright law is essential.  By taking this course you’ll know what your rights are and how to protect them.

Filmmaking Assets

Thousands of music tracks, stock footage and sounds for free

Interviews

Sit down with Hollywood professionals for hours at anytime from any web connection.  Learn from these journeymen and women as they give you the ins and outs of the business.

Tutorials

The entire process of making a video production broken down step-by-step.  Don’t miss a moment as the Sneak On The Lot tutorials carry you away from concept to completion.

Script Library

Learning to write great screenplays starts with reading great screenplays.  Download your favorite movie screenplay and rediscover what made it so great.  You would be surprised how much they change from script to screen.

Invaluable.  Thanks so much!

Everything happens so fast, my brain has been overwhelmed and is whirling.  I just hope that my brain retains as much as possible to pass on to the kids.

Once we became introduced to Sneak On The Lot, we knew we had a partner for life. So during the past 2 years, over 40 Ladue High School students have taken part in the curriculum. Without a doubt, Sneak On The Lot has helped boost interest in our program, educated our film students immensely, and student interest in our film classes is at an all-time high!

I have 3 Seniors who just graduated and will be attending film school in the fall. Sneak On The Lot was a MAIN component of their successful admission into their chosen colleges
