David Heavener, Your Film Professor

Many years ago David Heavener made his way to Hollywood with absolutely no experience or connections in the film industry. However, within three years David was proclaimed as one of Hollywood’s most successful indie filmmakers. Now David shares his “secrets of Hollywood success” with you, including how he became an award-winning filmmaker and actor producing and distributing hundreds of features for HBO, Showtime, USA and others worldwide.

David has starred with legends such as Tony Curtis and Martin Landau and many others. Landau says, “David’s film Eye of the Stranger is one of the best-directed indie films I’ve starred in.”  In this intense and intimate academy, David shares with you the principles and techniques you will never learn in traditional film school. To access the online video courses or learn from David in person click here.  Whether you are a seasoned professional wanting to sharpen your skills, a film school graduate, or new to film making, this online Academy is your home to success.
