Hey friend,

Rob Hardy here, creator of the Filmmaker's Guide to Success

I used to have a massively long page about this course, explaining everything you'd possibly want to know.

You can still read it if you want, but I want to respect your time.

Truth is, if you want to get ahead as a filmmaker (or in any area of life) you must value your time highly. Unlike other resources, once time is spent, it's gone forever.

That's why this page is shorter (about 90% shorter) and much more direct.

Anyhow, if you're here right now, reading this page, it means you're serious about this filmmaking thing, and you've got big dreams of making films you care about and making a living with it.

If that doesn't sound like you, that's ok. But this course isn't for you.

But if you want a fulfilling, creative, profitable life as a filmmaker—and you want strategies that work for making those dreams become a reality—I've got something you'll love.

So here's the deal.

The Filmmaker's Guide to Success is a four-week online course that will help you pinpoint the exact filmmaking career you want, then make significant progress in the next 30-90 days.

It doesn't focus on what gear to buy, or how to make your images more "cinematic."

Instead, it's about deeper strategies for getting what you want out of life.

It does this in a couple of ways. You'll learn how to...

  • Craft a big, compelling vision for the filmmaking career you want.
  • Make sure that vision will make you happy in the long run. (So you don't spend years climbing the wrong ladder.)
  • Quit procrastinating and make time in your busy schedule.
  • Build a rock solid daily routine, and make it habitual.
  • Identify the "core work" that helps you move the needle and stop wasting time on stuff that doesn't work.
  • Set smart short term goals that help you make progress quickly.
  • Make money as a filmmaker and diversify your income.
  • Build a body of work that you're proud of, and that opens doors in your career.
  • Plus lots of other useful, counterintuitive stuff.

The coolest thing about this course, though—the thing I'm most proud of—is that it actually helps you show up every single day, and make consistent progress in your career.

It's delivered one lesson per day, and if you follow the directions, and show up consistently, by the end you'll have a habitual routine.

After that, it's just a matter of filling that routine with your own tasks, your own work. You'll be primed to start making progress in your career as soon as it's over.

Trust me, even 20-30 minutes a day can move the needle if you focus on the right things.

Life has a way of rewarding those who show up consistently and use their time wisely.

And the Filmmaker's Guide to Success shows you exactly how to do that, step-by-step.

But now you're probably thinking... does it actually work? Will this really help me make progress on my big film goals?

Rob's Insane Money-Back Guarantee

I believe in this course so much, that I'm backing it up with a guarantee that most of my business friends think is insane.

You've got 5 years to go through the course as many times as you want, put all of the material to use, and see if it works (hint: it does.)

But if you do the work, and don't see results after that amount of time, I don't deserve your money. And I'll give you back every last cent.

All I ask is that if you request a refund, you show me proof that you've been doing the work. Maybe we can even jump on a call for a few minutes and you can tell me how to make the course better.

This also means that if you buy the course, ask for a refund, but don't do any of the work, I'll probably say no. So please don't buy this course unless you're serious.

What Does the Filmmaker's Guide to Success Cost?

$300, or six monthly payments of $50. Your choice.
