One Minute Academy

FILM SCHOOL IN YOUR POCKET


FOR ANYONE WITH A SMARTPHONE OR CAMERA

Video making made simple.

We invented a one minute storytelling method that can be used with any smartphone or camera. Individuals, companies and institutions can save time and money when they use our method for profile videos, job resumes, product launches, fundraising videos, grant reports, advertising, travel logs and news.

Our teachers have worked in 47 countries with partners like the US Department of State, Princeton University, National Geographic and Condé Nast Publications.
