Orson Welles said, “Everything you need to know about filmmaking can be learned in two to three days.” Mr. Simens agrees. The 2-Day Film School takes you through the entire process of writing, directing, producing, financing and distributing your movie in one weekend.

On Day-1 “Make Your Movie”, Mr Simens shows you how to write, direct, shoot and produce your first feature film whether your film budget is US$5,000, US$500,000 or US$5,000,000.

On Day-2 “Sell Your Movie”, Mr. Simens teaches you how to finance, distribute, market and profit with global sales exceeding US$200 million.

Other topics include marketing, film festivals, distribution deals, foreign sales, cable deals, and theatrical revenues…and much, much more. But more importantly, Mr. Simens teaches you, no-holds barred, Hollywood insider tips that are not offered in any 4-year film school.

The 2-Day Film School course packs 4 years of film school into a single weekend. With the course, you will receive an exclusive Filmmaker’s Workbook with extensive information pertaining to material presented in class plus an award of a certificate of completion.

Quentin Tarantino, a Dov Simens’ 2-Day Film School graduate and a one time video store clerk turned filmmaker said,“Why waste 4 years at a film school? I got Dov’s… Film School”; and you can put the tens of thousands of dollars in tuition fees you save toward financing your movie.
