I know that online courses don't really promote hands on study... but for now I can't re-locate to a real college so soon, Brooks Institute looks amazing but I can't get there in the next month or two, stuck on the east coast :angry: . I am just wondering if anyone can recommend an online course, for next spring semester, preferably something that takes financial aid or provides a living stipend like a regular University.
Thanks! :)
Looking for film theory, screenwriting or general liberal arts classes.

I'm not sure what curriculum you're looking for in "liberal arts," but relative to film and screenwriting, I highly recommend the following resources that you can study on your own at home without the expense of a formal education:


Wordplayer.... www.wordplayer.com Read EVERY page of this fantastic FREE site by established experienced Screenwriters.

# ISBN-10: 0240511905
# ISBN-13: 978-0240511900

For online/internet classes, take a look here: http://realfilmcaree....php?topic=16.0

For craft specific resources, go here: http://realfilmcaree...x.php?topic=9.0

And this forum has a number of very relevant "editorials"/articles that speak to issues within the professional film industry: http://realfilmcaree....php?board=59.0

Also, look here www.whatireallywanttodo.com/resources.htm for a list of additional resources that may help you.



And while these may seen silly, it's worth watching these movies that are about making movies which depict the realities of the business on every level.
