Troma’s Free Film School

posted by Nell Minow

Troma Entertainment has launched a brand-new, free YouTube channel dedicated to sharing decades of filmmaking expertise with aspiring filmmakers, Troma president Lloyd Kaufman announced today.  Troma will post free secrets to financing, producing, and selling movies which Lloyd Kaufman has gained over 40 years in the film industry, along with segments featuring the film industry’s leading producers, directors, and actors, such as, James Gunn, Trey Parker & Matt Stone, Eli Roth, Penelope Spheeris, Stan Lee, George Romero, Jenna Fisher, Roger Corman, David Cronenberg, and many more.

Based upon Kaufman’s hit Make Your Own Damn Movie! book and DVD series, a brand-new filmmaking lesson will be posted every Friday via Your Own Damn Channel. “This is film school on YouTube,” said Lloyd Kaufman. “We have thanked our fans for keeping us in business for 40 years by making 250 of our best movies available on YouTube for free, and we are keeping up with that tradition by offering this companion piece to my book and DVD series free of charge as well.”
