Where all other educational packages offer only the course content, we extend that content with a suite of media tools and hands-on workshops, which result in a much higher chance of success and production value.
The Lot is a full service educational platform for learning the ins and outs of the filmmaking process.
We offer educational filmmaking and media courses but combine them with a powerful suite of tools to maximize quality and production value.
Welcome to Sneak On The Lot
Here at Sneak On The Lot we have created various film courses chock-full of information and interviews with professionals that guide users through the filmmaking process and provide valuable filmmaking tools along the way to ensure the absolute best results from our users. These tools include access to high-quality royalty-free music, sound effects and stock footage as well as script libraries and other amazing resources. Every Sneak On The Lot course includes access to the tools and course content created by industry professionals.
Our instructors have years of experience in the industry working on films like The Sandlot, Small Soldiers, Minority Report, The World’s Fastest Indian and many others. Each course is designed for different levels of experience so there is something for everyone, from the most novice filmmaker to the experienced professional.
Every summer Sneak On The Lot also hosts a filmmaking workshop in Burbank, California for both students and educators to work alongside professionals in the production of a short film. This weeklong workshop includes classes focusing on development, pre-production, production and post-production as well as presentations and QAs with producers, sound designers, composers and editors.
