Welcome to the David Lynch Masters in Filmmaking Program Website!

Exciting developments are on the horizon!

We are currently re-visioning the David Lynch Masters Program.

We are taking time now to integrate what we’ve learned in the first two years of the program as well as implementing many new ideas and improvements to make the program even more cutting-edge and relevant.

The David Lynch Masters in Filmmaking Program is the first and only “Consciousness-Based Film Education” available anywhere. Students in the program learn about deep story and the whole process of filmmaking, from a real-world, David Lynch perspective, while directly experiencing the source of creativity within through daily individual and group practice of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique.

We expect to have the new plan for the program in place by mid-August, 2015. To receive information, please add your name and email address in the fields below and you will be notified as soon as details of the new David Lynch Masters Program become available.

"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..." Read Full Quote

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.

Film Project

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.

The Edit

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.
