Thread starter rufino Start date Apr 18, Am interested in attending Dov S-Simens 2-day film school and wanting some feedback from anyone out there who has already attended the course.
Wondering if it’s worth it, or should I look elsewhere? Your advice is greatly appreciated! JohnnyGraves New Member Oct 17, Workook have taken one of his seminars and I walked out.

First, he has done his homework and if you are a complete noob you will learn a few things but the bottom line is he is a salesman with the type of personality that most people who know little about Hollywood think Hollywood people are like so they buy his schtick hook line and sinker.
So, he knows enough to fill the dvd seminars he sells but anything he teaches you can find on the internet or a library much much cheaper. I would even steer noobs away. His seminar isn’t about filmmaking but the business side of the industry. If you don’t feel like shelling out the money for his seminar and I know it can be a little expensive check out his book ‘From Reel To Deal’ His seminar basically follows the format of the book.
I think you’ll find it informative and you’ll only be out like 10 bucks.

El Grindio New Member Nov 26, There is a reason why so many people in the industry-that you probably look up to eg. Workbopk, Spike Lee etc -took his course, bought his materials or paid him to personally teach it to them: He knows his stuff, in terms of producing movies, learning how to within a workboook time.
You can find this information elsewhere, but how long will it take you to amass it?
JohnnyGraves New Member Nov 26, There is nothing he teaches that you cannot find for free on the internet or from borrowing a book or two from the library. I’m serious, I have taken his seminar, just like many others including a few famous people.

Learn to save money now and I guarantee it will help you in the future in and out of film. Sure he’s done the research, so should you. I am a production manager in Los Angeles. Boy is that naive producer going to get screwed.
These are the things that Dov S-S Simens covers. Now, that’s a big-big statement. In the first day of the class in 8-hours I learned how to write the, as he calls, 38 bank checques Workook, Lab, Camera, Sound, Light, Grips, Dollies, Pewrmits, Insurance, etc that you are going to write when you make a feature film.
He clearly knows his stuff. And bank checque by bank checque he takes you step-by-step through the process of making your first feature. Not only does he take you step-by-step through the process but you vicariously feel as if you are physically making the movie right then and there. Then on the second day he takes you step-by-step through the process of Marketing, Selling Distributing that first feature film. It is all REAL. Dov is not a salesman, he leaves it all dvo there for you. If you do not take Dov’s course I can guarantee you that if you ever make a feature film you will A go way over budget, B more than likely never get it si,ens and C even if you get it done you won’t get into a major festival and secure a Distributor.
