This master’s degree in film will for sure teach all the aspects of filmmaking, but with the profound addition of the Transcendental Meditation® technique, taught by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. This will give all those in the program the ability to dive within, to transcend and experience that unbounded ocean of pure consciousness, which is unbounded intelligence, creativity, happiness, love, energy, power and peace. The students in this program will grow in these all-positive qualities and it will serve the work in glorious ways. The big secret to great filmmaking, I believe, lies within in the big treasury within us all. This will be a great program and you’ll never be sorry you took part.”

A story is a clown that’s escaped from a circus. Why did he run away? Did Luella, the svelte acrobat with the caustic wit break his heart? Has he been inspired to join a people’s revolution? A story tells us who the hero is, his goal, and how he overcomes every obstacle to reach it.
A screenplay distills the story into a concentrated potion of speech, sound and visuals. A blueprint where each stroke counts. You strike the balance between light and dark, silence and motion. It is the essence of the story and nothing more.
A film project is a military operation. But you’re shooting with cameras rather than guns, marshalling creatives rather than soldiers. The activity needs to be as organized and synchronized as a combat mission, but the goal is realizing the blueprint, bringing it to life.
You work like an alchemist, slicing and dicing footage until you find the clean silver line. Sound gives meaning. Visual effects create texture. Music creates atmosphere. Something inside guides you. When every part is in the right place, it creates the wholeness. This is the elixir.
The media market is a leviathan, monstrous in its power and forever changing its form. So what now? You’re the creator. What do you do with your film? Best get ready to go into battle.
