From the Office of the Dean: RJFS 2017 Update
Posted February 23, 2017 by Lauren Haroutunian in Blog

In case you missed it, we dropped this update at the end of our latest video:

The next RocketJump Film School video will be coming out at the end of March. We are going to be shifting to monthly videos in order to prep for some cool new stuff. If you want to know more about it, you can read about it in the blog post linked down below. And we’ll see you on this channel every Thursday at 4PM pacific time for our live streams.

So, dear film students… I know what you’re thinking:

John Wick 2 was kickass, and Keanu’s action hero career is experiencing a well-deserved renaissance.

Yeah, I'm thinking I'm back...

But I know that you’re ALSO thinking: “MONTHLY VIDEOS?! I CAN BARELY FUNCTION WITH ONE VIDEO A WEEK HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO SURVIVE WITH A VIDEO A MONTH?”

Trust me, we feel you. RJFS is going to be constantly growing and evolving as we move forward, especially with all the amazing input and feedback you guys have given us. Nothing is set in stone, and believe it or not, this isn’t a sign of RJFS slowing down or diminishing, but rather it’s a step we’re taking to work on the bigger picture.

First of all, doing a monthly video will give us so much more time to write, produce, and edit better videos. We want Film School’s content to be as useful and robust as possible. RJFS has always been a small team of three very passionate, hard-working, and often weird people who want to make learning about filmmaking fun. We want to think bigger, harness more resources, and push our existing boundaries as an online resource.

Second, we’re working on a larger collaboration with RocketJump, and we’re donating a portion of our time and expertise in both filmmaking and teaching to help RocketJump build something… secret. And cool. Made for you. That you will like. (Daniel will kill me if I write more.)

And third, this gives us more time for YOU! Your suggestions and feedback are still shaping film school in huge ways, even if you haven’t realized it yet. We’ll have more time on our forums to talk with you directly, offer feedback, and develop lessons and live streams that will most benefit you. Because the best education is a conversation, a dialogue, between the student and the teachers.

If you have questions, concerns, or just want to send us a lot of gifs of people crying, comment below.

It'll be ok

Love, Lauren, Cherish, & Joey
