What's inside Full Time Filmmaker?

In this program, we cover everything from the very basics of what gear to buy and how to use it, to advanced cinematography techniques, my full editing workflow (on both Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro X), and the steps I take to land video clients! The curriculum currently consists of over 400+ training videos (80+ hours) and I add new videos every month to keep the learning relevant and up-to-date.

Member Winning a Glidecam

As a bonus, twice a year, we hold themed video contests for a chance to win awesome prizes. Our most recent winner received a Devin Graham Glidecam ($850 value). These contests encourage members create content and learn from one another's video entries.

Feedback Fridays

Every Friday, I select members' videos to review in-depth. I break down what was done well and what can be improved upon, helping you increase production value and land higher paying clients.

Our World Wide Community

Map of FTF Members Worldwide

One of the biggest perks of a traditional film school is networking with other talented filmmakers. That's why we've created a private Facebook page designated for members to collaborate, share work, give/receive feedback, ask questions, share articles, and learn and grow together.

What Separates Us From the Competition?

A Member Working on the Job with Parker

Having purchased many online courses myself, I believe Full Time Filmmaker is the most efficient and informative online course available, giving you everything you NEED to know, without all the fluff. No other course offers regular video contests, feedback to student videos, and personal access to a practicing professional, who regularly adds NEW content to keep the learning relevant and up-to-date. This industry evolves so fast, it's nice to know your mentor is evolving too.

CLEAN. CLEAR. INFORMATIVE.Andrew Gilford; Taneytown, Maryland

"Your teaching is clear and thorough and advice is dead on. I've been in film school for 2 years using standard industry equipment (Red Dragon, Premiere, giant jibs and huge dolly set ups) and you've summed up 2 years of classes in about 2 dozen videos. So cool."

Jen Holmstrom

COMPLETELY INSPIRED!Jen Holmstrom; San Francisco, California

"Parker is so efficient, he gets right to the basic tools needed to start producing quality work. He is also always there to answer questions and guide us along the way. I'm so excited to have had the opportunity to join the group and start building dreams that were left on the back-burner for so long."

Colby Kendell

LANDED MY DREAM JOBColby Kendell; Ogden, Utah

"Last year I was teaching college full-time and pursuing my love of film on the side as a freelancer. After studying and applying the principles taught in this course, I have since landed my dream job as the Director of Multimedia at MTN OPS in Salt Lake City, Utah. All I can say is, Thank You!"

"The Full Time Filmmaker Course makes you completely rethink how the filmmaking process works, Parker describes right down to the detail how he became successful and lays it out in an easy to follow series of videos. If you're looking to realise the potential you have, invest in Full Time Filmmaker and you won't regret it!"

Trellany Udall

AMAZING!Trellany Udall; Gilbert, Arizona

"I have LOVED this course. I have learned so many things that have taken my video to the next level. Parker is great at giving a break down of all the ins and outs of what I need to know to be successful. If anyone is thinking about purchasing this course, just do it! You will be filled with so much knowledge and your work will be taken to the next level!"

Robertis Tongbram

BEST FILMMAKING COURSERobertis Tongbram; San Jose, California

"I have tried several other courses online, but I never learned what I wanted to learn. This course has so many things from composition, lighting, glidecaming (best glidecamming tutorials), best editing tutorials, sound designing, job shadows (Parker invites you to his shoots) and more… One of the best investments I have made."

Matt Hutchinson

PHENOMENAL COURSE!Matt Hutchinson; Ontario, Canada

“I have attended film school, spent $15,000 on my education, and can honestly say the information I have learned in this course has proven more valuable to me then anything I learned in college. I have returned my investment with this program within a month. If you are considering this program, do it. You wont be dissappointed!"
