About Us

Founded in 2018, we set off on a mission to curate and deliver truly valuable film career information, sourced by trusted experts. While sites like Wikipedia often reference our authoritative content, we wanted to go above and beyond the basic career information their site offers. Our aim is to provide deeper insights, reveal more piercing data, and genuinely help our users gain an edge on the competition through our many Industry Insights articles and our 100+ film career profiles.

We’re owned and operated by Generation Z, LLC out of Boulder, CO.

How Do We Make Our Money?

Everyone has to pay the bills, right? We work with a handful of select film schools to help pair them with the users of our site who are interested in attending for programs like Filmmaking and Film Business. Each user we refer to these schools earns us a small fee. We never, ever suggest a person attend film school unless they feel it is right for them.

A few of the schools we work with are Full Sail University and Los Angeles Film School.
