Get filmmaking secrets, from finding (and securing) financing, through surviving production, through distribution and everything in between from me, Adam Bhala Lough, a Spirit Award nominated, 3-time Sundance Film Festival alum and one of Filmmaker Magazine's Top 25 Indie Filmmakers to Watch.

Who am I?

I'm an internationally acclaimed 14-year vet with four documentaries currently on Netflix and three that were the #1 documentary on the iTunes charts. I've had an incredible amount of success in my career but I have also failed many, many times. You will learn where I failed along the way so you won't make the same mistakes.

I'm also a mentor at the Sundance Native labs and Latino Screenwriting labs and was a mentor at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival mentor sessions so I know how to teach in a concise and clear way.

Why should you take this course and not another?

You will get secrets only a seasoned pro can reveal- from the beauty of not paying insane clearance fees by claiming "fair-use," to how to get into a film festival without any connections. It's all in this 5 hour course.

Other courses give general knowledge of how to make a film from people with very little actual real world experience. This course is taught directly from my experience making eight feature length documentary films, all of which have received worldwide distribution and been translated into many languages.

Hello and welcome to this course! I'm Josh, and I love immersive media.

Full disclosure: This course hasn't been updated for a while and contains some outdated information. It's been free for a while now, but I wanted to update the course description as well so everyone could understand the context of them going through these videos.

I created this course back in 2016, so it's not ancient or anything, but it definitely doesn't include the latest tools, techniques, and tricks that have evolved since then (which is a lot.)

There are still approaches and philosophies that I think are still applicable and valuable and I'll try to remove videos that contain zero useful information, but just keep all that in mind while you watch.

I'm still working in the Cinematic VR industry, but have shifted my focus from teaching over a little more to making. So, as always, feel free to leave questions and I'll be happy to answer them.

I'll leave this course up on Udemy, but will probably be more active on the 360º Video Academy YouTube channel so feel free to come find me there as well.

Thank you!

FILMMAKING IN A BOX has over 20+ Hours of real world lessons they DON'T teach you this in Film School! This course is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Seriously. 

If you’re a lover of movies who dreams of getting behind the camera, you know you own dozens of DVDs with behind-the-scens material that you’ve watched 100 times. Right?

But, seriously… When are you going to get the chance to be standing in a field surrounded by 10,000 extras all in custom-made armor filming with 20 cameras? Chances are your first film (or even your second or third) are going to be significantly smaller in scale than that…

You’ll get interviews and conversations with all key members of the production team: the director, the producers, the writer, the cinematographers, the editor, the production sound mixer, the post production sound designer, the assistant director and more! These are not marketing fluff interviews – these are uncensored, honest and straight-to-the-point discussions about every pitfall, conflict and negotiation required to complete the project.

In addition – you also get hundreds of pages of the actual documents used to make the film: the full budget (yes! the REAL full budget, line by line see how the money was spent), the schedule, call sheets, every contract, director’s notes and MORE.

What if you could pick up any camera and instantly shoot short films that leave your audiences breathless giving you the confidence to shoot bigger and more profitable projects?

Let me ask you a question

Do you feel that making a short film is just not possible ?

If only you could figure out a way to access actors, technicians and writers - your short film would come alive.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could learn filmmaking instantly?

Hi, My name is Abhishek Padmanabhan, and those are the questions I used to struggle with as well.

Just imagine if you had the ability to turn stories in your mind into reality in just a few hours. What would you do with that ability. What kind of films would you make?

What is that one piece of knowledge that will fast track your short film.

Unfortunately, the way the system is run now - if you want to become a filmmaker - you either;

  • Assist A Director for three years and use his knowledge on making your first short film

  • Or you spend approximately Rs 25 Lakhs and three years of your time at an overpriced Film School….and then make your-first-short-film.

Or….

You could attend my Online Filmmaking Workshop that will teach you field-tested-guerilla-Filmmaking-Secrets that will turn-you-into-an-OverNight-Filmmaker.

I used to dream about making short films.Everywhere I went - all i saw was angles, shots and sequences.But I couldn’t express this filmmaker in me

Why? I’m glad you asked You see - I had a story - I had the shots in my mind - but.I didn’t have the confidence needed to just pick up a camera and start filming.Then one day - I discovered a book

The book gave the much needed confidence to make my first short film.One year later and six short films down - I’d like to offer you something called the Ninety minute film school

It’s called - “ How to become a filmmaker in 90 Minutes”.

Here's what you’ll learn in this course

MODULE 1 : Cinematography 101

  1. The four different types of shots that you will use to tell your story.

  2. How to create cinematography that moves the audience with your story ( Some of these cinematography techniques have been used in movies like ‘ American Hustle and Mission Impossible )

  3. 4 Camera exercises performed for just 4 minutes a day that will help you become your own cinematographer

MODULE 2 : Direction 101

  1. How to direct your actors using this 3 step system to eliciting mind blowing performances

  2. How to choreograph the performance of your actors using a technique called Video Storyboarding.

  3. How to use cinematography to establish a power struggle between your actors in the scene ( Note : This is key in keeping audiences glued to their screen ).

MODULE 3 : Skriptwriting 101

The Caveman Story Builder

  • The one secret to writing a story with a hero’s journey that keeps your audience spellbound and hooked to their screens - and how you can figure out this transformation by deciding if your cavemen drawings are happy or sad.

  • Why you should always decide what the starting and ending of the story are before writing the script.

The 60 Minute Scriptwriting Template

  • How to lay out the plot of your entire film

  • How to determine the middle point of your story - this will help you figure out the whole script.

  • How to spice up your script by making the hero’s life extremely difficult and making it look like he'll never achieve his goal.

  • How add a slight glimmer of hope - helping the hero achieve his goal.

The Directors Manual To Turning Scripts Into Shootable Shots

  • How to use shots to break down each part of your story

  • How to break these story points down into a shot by shot execution plan that will help you shoot your short film fast.

Just like you I struggled to make my first short film - until I realized that……

You get more answers from shooting the short film than from thinking about shooting the short film

At my last live workshop, one-of-my-students, Rakesh was hesitant about his ability to become a Filmmaker in ninety minutes - until I revealed some of the secrets of this workshop….

Then in a few hours - he shot his first short film - with me as the hero.

What happened next shocked me. People were begging me to teach them these overnight-filmmaking-secrets….others were really skeptical that it was even possible.

So I gave them a challenge...the SAME challenge I’m going to give you right now. Pay me ten thousand rupees, and I guarantee you’ll become a filmmaker in just 90 Minutes…...and from that point forward, for the rest of your life, you’ll have a skill that will help you make short films at will.

And if you’re skeptical…..then don’t worry after I’ve personally trained you and have turned you into a filmmaker once you’ve watched the entire video tutorial - send me an email telling me if this course has worked for you.

AND…..If I haven’t turned you into a film-maker….ask for an immediate refund. Does that seem fair? We'll call this “ Abhishek Padmanabhan’s , 90 Minute Filmmaking Challenge.”

And so far….I’ve never lost. So I set up a special video course for you..If you watch this video Kourse….I will turn you into a filmmaker in 90 minutes.

Here’s what I wan’t you to do for you.

If I don’t deliver, or you don’t think the information was worth the price, just send me an email and I'll Process your no-questions-asked-immediate-refund

Does that sound fair?

It’s kind of like going to a movie, and if you hate it...then you pay NOTHING…..

So now it’s your turn to decide.

Say yes, and let me prove that my system works.

You will just need to click the link below and pay the course fee and you get instant access to the “ How To Become An Overnight Filmmaker Kourse”.

You’ve got nothing to lose by giving this a try.

Does it take you too long to make videos?
Do they turn out how you imagined?

Making great videos by yourself in a timely manner takes the right combination of knowledge and experience.

Creating videos alone is difficult enough without having to worry about whether or not the lighting looks right, the mic sounds okay, and if you are actually in focus. 

Whether you're too intimidated to make your first video or you're making them all the time, I'll share what I've learned the past few years making over a hundred videos for myself and clients like Pat Flynn, Fizzle.co, and Gumroad.

I believe that anyone can make great videos of themselves. It just takes patience, dedication, and the right amount of focused learning.

Hey there! Are you as pumped as I am about creating powerful videos without spending years at film school or buying expensive equipment?

Many people are just not aware of how to get their videos to create more impact. They may invest in fancy equipment and have achieved a polished look, but are wondering why there is no 'wow factor'.

Over the next lessons, we'll go behind the scenes of the edit and train your eye to identify the elements that will improve your videos.

I will be showing you how to:

  • Craft a story from seemingly random clips

  • Cut clips more effectively so every second adds value

  • Use different filming techniques seen in the movies

  • Train your directors eye and see detail where you may never have noticed

  • Tell your story and make a meaningful montage that carries sentimental value

Pets, kids, and life are filled with so many beautiful spontaneous moments. It's time to learn to artfully capture them and produce video montages that will hold the sentiment forever.

Filmmaking is combination of art, technique and business. Unlike other art forms of art, films depend more on technology. 5G is going to democratise filmmaking. It will transform location scouting, revolutionise chroma (green screen) shoots, transform motion capture and much more. You can go direct from camera to cloud with high resolution RAW files, and do much more. 5G has the ability to become the post office between the camera and a collaborative, connected creative ecosystem. It will save time, clutter and expenses. Instead of having to setup your game engine (for virtual productions) on set, you can just stream the cameras back to a supercomputer, and the supercomputer sends back the results. You could setup anywhere , with no special equipment.

Topics to be covered in this free online course:

  • What is 5G and different types?

  • Benefits of 5G technology

  • Impact on Pre-production due to 5G

  • Impact on production due to 5G

  • Impact on Post-production due to 5G

  • Impact on Film distribution due to 5G

  • World’s major tech players in 5G

  • How to stay update with new emerging trends in filmmaking

5G is the inflection point where the global wireless mobile network catches up to the rigourous capacity demands of leading-edge filmmaking workflow.
