Why choose NFS?
We are here to accelerate the ambitious storytellers.
We believe anyone can be a filmmaker and anyone can go big in their film career with the right guidance and tools. To put it simply, we help students go from novice to expert in a fraction of the time and cost. We have spent the last 10 years perfecting our course so you can jump right in and start making a living doing what you love in just a couple months.
Use your gear:
Not having the ‘best’ gear is no excuse to put your dreams on hold any longer.
Whether you are using a fancy boy cinema camera or a couple of hundred buck DSLR, top of the line editing with all the best add-ons, or naughty pirated edited programs from 8 years ago (don’t worry we have a strict no snitching policy)- it just doesn’t matter.
We will teach you how to get the absolute most out of what you have available to use so that you can start filming within your budget.
Let’s embrace the hunger to make films, not the excuses why you can’t!
Brady has over 20+ years of experience and he wants to share it with you. This is someone with countless ads and shows featured on free to air and streaming services such as Netflix and stan, has had award nominations and has literally spent decades working with brands resulting in tonnes of creative and technical experience.
If you have a question, it’s your time to ask it in these 6 sessions. We are here to give you as much value as possible so you are always learning something new and from someone who knows their stuff inside out.
You can learn more about Brady below.
