We've gathered the best
Directors in the industry

For 48 HOURS only... Join over 81,000 filmmakers for
practical sessions on everything DIRECTING!
It's happening on September 12th and 13th.

Our hand-picked team of 8 world-class Directors reveal how you can create superior films, instantly set yourself apart from the competition, and amaze your fellow filmmakers.

As filmmaking continues to explode in both entertainment and education (plus the cost of professional equipment is coming down) the industry is becoming more and more competitive. You can no longer "rest on your laurels"... the key is watching what the master filmmakers are doing.

And that's exactly why we created the CineSummit, which has quickly become the world's LARGEST educational event for Filmmakers with over 80,000 attendees expected to attend CS7.

Let me in!

Imagine an event where you have access to incredibly
talented filmmakers from around the world revealing
their secrets. This is what CineSummit is all about.

Ummm… Star Wars!?!? Ummm…. Alien!?!?
Meet the Man Who Created the “look” of Star Wars AND Alien

You’re in for a treat. A BIG treat. When it comes to ONE movie that’s changed filmmaking forver, it’s Star Wars. In fact, it’s not even close.

So when it was time to book this year’s keynote speaker - there was one person at the top of the list. Roger Christian.

Yes - THAT Roger Christian.

The Roger Christian who (literally) created the lightsaber. The Roger Christian who also was responsible for the look of Alien.

During this exclusive CineSummit session, Roger opens up about the real “secrets” to creating a look that’ll transform your film without breaking your budget.

Some highlights include…

  • How he created the lightsaber (and why it might never happen in 2017 and beyond)
  • How to give your films a sense of “realism”.. Even on a shoestring budget.
  • The TRUTH about breaking into Hollywood (the answer might surprise you)
