Los Angeles, CA (December 3, 2008) -- Independent filmmaker and founder of FilmMakingCentral.com, David Basulto, announced today the launch of his new online film school, FilmSchoolOnDemand (www.filmschoolondemand.com). With the launch of this innovative and comprehensive online curriculum, Basulto is fulfilling a life-long passion for sharing his talent and expertise by creating an inexpensive forum for new filmmakers to learn the most current technologies and techniques for not only creating new films, but also for successfully marketing and selling films in today’s highly competitive market.
FilmSchoolOnDemand will cover nearly 30 topics addressing the requirements of filmmakers today, including script writing, story boarding, pre-production, production and post production techniques, financing and budgeting, and deliver and distribution.
As part of the launch of FilmSchoolOnDemand, Basulto is extending significant discounts to those interested in becoming Charter Members.

Charter Members signing up in advance of the launch will save $100 off the price of tuition. Visit www.filmschoolondemand.com for more information on the Charter Member deal.
“Making movies has always been a dream of mine, and I’ve been fortunate throughout my career to have had the opportunity to work with, and learn from some of the finest talent in the industry. FilmSchoolOnDemand represents my chance to give back to aspiring new filmmakers all that I’ve learned and hopefully ignite the passions of tomorrow’s Hollywood filmmakers,” said Dave Basulto, founder of FilmSchoolOnDemand.
In addition to providing in-depth classes, FilmSchoolOnDemand also provides students a community area where students can blog, participate in chats and forums, and extend the learning environment in a more social-media oriented approach. To assist new filmmakers and students on materials covered in the classes, Basulto will also host weekly live streaming sessions where students can participate, ask questions and share ideas.
Future courses in the works include a screenwriting class with an Academy Award nominated writer, a movie marketing and distribution master class, and a class designed for those interested in getting into the art department.
