The Next Generation


Cyber Film School learning systems began two decades ago with our award-winning web resource, multimedia and television platforms, with a mission to narrow the gap between affordable film technology and costly quality film education. 

Throughout it all, we stuck to one essential precept: Filmmaking is a language. The tech that produces and expresses this language may change, but its fundamentals are evergreen.

Our Past Products

Early web page archive

  • “Make Your Movie” TV series extended our reach to television with a six-part series on the craft of moviemaking, produced in association with Independent Film Channel.


  •  “Movie School Encyclopedia” was a critical hit with teachers and self-learners worldwide. It guided teachers but was simple enough for self-guided learners to follow.


  • Our learning tools were adopted by schools, colleges, libraries, and emerging filmmakers worldwide. We’re grateful for good press and are thankful for our clients. Many work in the industry today. Their feedback encouraged us to develop our newest platform for a new generation.


What’s Next

We’ve put everything we learned into a major reboot of Cyber Film School – a whole new product, a whole new platform, for a brand new generation.

In the late nineties Moe originated the Cyber Film School web site out of passion, to reach as many emerging filmmakers he could. He received numerous awards and glowing user reviews, media recognition, Internet awards, along with glowing reviews in computer and entertainment publications.

We build effective learning tools for emerging filmmakers and for media teachers as support for existing programs.
