About GetFilming and our Filmmaking Mission

What is GetFilming?

GetFilming is an online film school and community, we bring together the best experts currently working within the industry with our community of aspiring filmmakers. We work with Film and TV professionals who have worked with everyone from Sky, BBC, HBO, AMC, ITV to clients ranging from Subway and Adidas to Gibson and everything in between.

Our mission is simple. We want to help to encourage and inspire everyone to get out there and create something awesome together. Whether you’re making films, TV or producing content for YouTube, we want you to be involved in our community.

Our courses cover a wide variety of topics, we have masterclasses on screenwriting, directing, working with actors, colour grading and colour correction, editing, motion graphics, lighting and cinematography. We are currently working with some excellent new tutors to produce new filmmaking courses for our awesome online film school to fill the void of knowledge.

GetFilming Creators: Matt Barker and Paul DoffmanWho are we?

GetFilming.com was created by two friends, we have a shared love of filmmaking and have created many short films together. Although we’ll be the first to admit that some of those short films have been better than others. We are on an epic quest to create the best online community for film makers, so join us!

Where are we going?

The way content is consumed has changed dramatically over the last few years, with the rise of streaming giants like Netflix and Hulu, the way content is created is following in the same trend. We created GetFilming because, as filmmakers, we couldn’t find what we were looking for. We wanted a community of filmmakers, all sharing their knowledge and learning from each other, building teams, networking and ultimately, creating the amazing content we know that can be created, together.

We want to grow this site into a place where you can easily find a team, a crowdsourcing production house, with the ultimate dream of financing student projects.

Who is it for?

Everyone and anyone who is interested in filmmaking. We’ve met so many people over the years that want to be filmmakers but they don’t know where to start. The best answer is often the simplest, get out there and get filming! Whether you want to be a screenwriter, cinematographer, editor, VFX artist, make-up artist or any other part of the Film and TV industry then this is the community for you.

We want to support the talent of today to create awesome content, knowledge will help us do that together.
