Ames Media Institute (AMI) is an online resource for film students. We offer resources, a study program, and a growing community of hands-on, “Do It Yourself” filmmakers.
We are not committed to helping people get jobs “in the movies.” There are plenty of great film schools for that.
We are committed to helping people make their own digital films (and TV, DVD, documentary, etc). If that leads to jobs “in the movies,” all the better.
The best way to get a job “in the movies” is to hone some skills, build a portfolio of work, and do let your performance do the talking.
OnlineÂ Filmmaking Program
AMI study materials, programs and courses offer lessons and insights for personal development and learning.
“The only way to learn to make movies is to make movies.”
