Thanks for the reply! I forgot to mention that I'm in New York, sorry.
I found a filmmaking workshop offered by Solar Productions (http://www.solarnyc....makingworkshop/).
I wonder if they are good, has anyone experience with them?
Thanks in advance and thanks Kimberley!

Hope this will help you make your decision.
P.S.They also have an excellent lighting workshop, which I also took (great thing about living in NYC ). You should check it out as well (http://solarnyc.com/lightingworkshop/).

I looked at both Maine's and Solar's workshop. It seemed like Maine only has classes for DSLR, which isn't what I want. And since I'm in NYC, it'll save me money to do it here. Solar's workshop seems to be legit and I like that they emphasize on hands-on practice, which is important to me. Anyway, I'll let you know once I've finished the workshop!

I promised I'll share my experience after I joined the film making workshop.
So last week I took Solar's Light and Shadow workshop and I absolutely loved it! It was very hands-on and we went through all important steps of film making. We actually made a decent film in only 5 days with almost no budget or expensive equipment. The class was small, intimate and very inspiring.
I really learned a lot and I would recommend this workshop to anyone!
Thanks again for all the comments and hope this helps.

Have you looked into the New York Film Academy? I attended a 6-Week Filmmaking Workshop they hosted in Boston a couple years ago and would recommend them. We were loading cameras and shooting test footage by Day #3. You can learn more about NYFA here: http://www.nyfa.edu/filmmaking/
Best to you and your filmmaking endeavors!
