Why should I take a class offered by Tytin Productions?

We really want to help those who are serious about elevating their craft to the next level. With more than 15 years of industry experience, and countless conversations with Hollywood producers and agents, we know what's selling and in demand. We understand story and how it works, and we know how to pull a performance out of any actor no matter their experience level. At Tytin Productions, we have a true love and passion for filmmaking, scriptwriting, and the film industry - both Independent and Hollywood - and we want to help everybody who has that same passion reach their dreams!

But too often aspiring filmmakers are not industry trained, or have read outdated books on the subject. Worse, many colleges that offer a filmmaking program don't support the students after graduation and often teach a more independent style and approach to the process. When graduate students get an opportunity to work on a large production or Union project, they're often overwhelmed and unprepared for the job. 

We often hear complaints in Texas that California gets all the work. Even when a project is being shot in Texas, often times production companies still fly in industry professionals from California (crew and actors) instead of utilizing local talent. This is because most crew members trained at USC or UCLA which have programs 100% dedicated to specific industry jobs. Their program even has a masters class on cinematography, directing, or screenwriting where you focus on mastering that specific talent. 

The independent market too often has individuals wearing too many hats instead of focusing on one craft. Additionally, often creative are the producer, the director, the writer, and the editor! This is because of a desire to control every aspect of production, and often the productions suffer as a result. 

This is how Tytin Productions can help you! Our classes are industry standard accepted, and oftentimes expected! We want to help you tell a story that captures an audience so you get noticed. We yearn to teach you how to obtain amazing and "truthful" performances from your actors. We aim to help you have a stronger, more cohesive, professional, and thus productive film set! 

Take one of our classes today and take your professional skills to the next level! We guarantee you and your audiences will see the difference!

All-the-while, we ensure that production runs according to schedule, keeping you informed each step of the way with with consistent daily communication. We manage the production schedule, budget, and production team utilizing industry-standard scheduling software that includes Day-Out-Of-Days, Cast Lists, and Locations Lists. Taking into account all major considerations from location availability to actors' needs, we will work closely with you to create a viable schedule that precisely reflects the needs of your project. We also provide your film an entire financial roadmap! You're provided with a full, detailed breakdown of all elements required - actors, extras, locations, camera, stuns, electric, grips, props, set dressing, wardrobe, sound, music, and much more!

Lastly, we deal with any problems that may arise during any phase of production, from planning to completion. This allows production to always be moving forward with important issues handled swiftly and professionally. We also ensure that insurance, health, and safety rules as well as copyright laws and union agreements are adhered to.
