Motion Picture Institute: The MOST Referred Film School

Motion Picture Institute: The MOST Referred Film School

 

It's always something special when an MPI student, such as Shane Hillier, takes the time to write his instructors simply to say, "Thankyou for creating a 'fantastic and incredible' film school and providing it all within driving distance."

However, it's not uncommon...In fact, MPI students are among the most satisfied students one will find at any film school around the country.

MPI Graduates Are Singing Our Praises 

Did you know that nearly half of the students who enroll in the Motion Picture Institute’s Filmmaking and Film Acting Programs, (each year), are referred by former students?

That’s right, every year, nearly half of our students come to MPI because of former students singing our praises.

These former students had such an exciting and life changing year at our “hands on” institute that they felt compelled to give MPI the highest compliment a school could ask for; A personal recommendation.

The praise from our students never gets old mainly because we don’t take our students for granted. And that’s the way MPI likes it. 

Student satisfaction is near 100% making MPI proud to be “the most recommended film school." 

 

A Film School In Your Own Backyard

And it’s nice to know that we’re in your neighborhood.

The allure of the coastal film schools used to be, “It’s where the action was”, but not anymore. Film production has been flourishing in Georgia, Toronto, Ohio, and Michigan allowing the opportunities to now exist in your own backyard. 

Film schools can be costly and leave you with a brief internship before you are eventually finding yourself in search of the next job. This isn't exactly "career launching"...it's misleading.

MPI proudly offers one of the most affordable and comprehensive film production educations in the country with great job placement assistance.

You can always pack up and move to L.A. or anywhere film is happening. However, the key is realizing that there's no need to make that move to get an education....Not when MPI is a film school in your own backyard.   

When Graduates, such as Kelly Colohan, can have their tuition paid off just three months after graduating and be working on original Netflix programming – it’s all the proof you need.
