I’ve been teaching Filmmaking for 7 years and my students have gone on to produce there own movies, writer there on movies, and direct there own movies. Within the first few lessons, you’ll be able to fully perform what I like to call the Quality Test on any project. Which consist of analyzing the following: Film Concept,Script, Director,Cast & Overall Team. As time goes on you’ll be able to understand tax incentives, different types of financing options, & investor types. In addition you will be able to execute all of the necessary paperwork required for pre-production,production and post-production. In addition you will be equipped with the skills necessary to produce/direct your own or others movie. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can’t wait to meet you!

Mr. T. walked me through a step by step process of creating and producing a film. He did a deep dive into not only each stage but the physiological aspect of the filmmaking process. I highly recommended.

Mr. Tinker is an incredible instructor. He not only provided me insight on different techniques but he gave me confidence to believe in myself. I highly recommend you work with Mr. Tinker.

DON’T EVER loan LaMarcus Tinker money or invest in his productions as you will never get it back. I loaned him money to put in escrow for a named actor for a film he was producing. Mr. Tinker not only didn’t pay the money back per our contract, he used some of the money for “other things” even though the loan was specifically and only for escrow. Mr. Tinker never communicated to me that the money would be used for something other than what was agreed and never informed me I would not be paid back as per the contract. It wasn’t until I kept pushing him for the money that he admitted he didn’t have it. Several people invested in this production and not one investor has been paid back nor has he informed the investors that he is no longer producing the film. In fact, as of Feb, 2021 he advised some investors that things were proceeding as planned and he was trying to secure actors. This is a complete lie!
