Dov Simens – American Greatest & Quentin Tarantino’s Film Teacher

I’m so excited to have on the show this week Dov Simens, founder of Hollywood Film Institute. He created the remarkable 2 Day Film School and has launched the careers of Quentin Tarantino, Chris Nolan, Spike Lee, Kevin Smith, Queen Latifah, Guy Ritchie & more.

“Listened to Dov Simens, Shot Reservoir Dogs and became a director.
– Quentin Tarantino

Dov Simens’ teaching style is entertaining, in your face and straight from the street. Real world, practical film education.

“Took the 2 Day and launched my filmmaking career!”
– Will Smith

Directing Actors, Directing Course, Per Holmes, Hollywood Camera Work, Hollywood Camera Work Coupon, Nina Foch

When I took his course over 15 years ago I was floored. He spoke about things I never heard in “film school.” He teaches you how to make a feature film, not how to be creative, not why you choose a camera or lenses, and not how to writer the great script.

“Dov Simens has Revolutionized Film Education”
– Roger Cormen (Legendary Indie Film Producer)

Without taking his course I wouldn’t have been able to make my first film BROKEN (Watch it on Amazon Prime). He laid the foundation for my filmmaking career. It’s sounds nuts that you can learn everything you need to know to make a feature film in 2 days but you can.

Sit back and prepared to be schooled in the ways of Jedi Film Teacher Dov Simens.
