Plotline  is a school devoted to nurturing, encouraging, teaching creative and critical thinking, time and resource management, constructive communication and achieving shared goals as a team. Coincidentally, all of those skills are highly valued and applicable to most other professions too.

Historically filmmaking has been limited to a select few who were granted access to film cameras, development, and other high equipment costs by studios who had a rigid commercial agenda. As a result, that knowledge and privilege was reserved for an elite minority. With the advent of digital recording, continual improvements as well as diminishing costs; the opportunity for the general public to become involved in filmmaking is here. The number one obstacle is education.

Unlike a university, there are no prerequisites required to enroll. Classes range from the absolute beginner to experienced and advanced students. Lessons are taught by professional film and media makers. Scholarships are available.
