"I made a movie I didn't finish. Then I read your books, took notes and made charts, and that's what guided me to my first complete movie." -- Quentin Tarantino

"I am especially grateful for the time you put in with our advanced seminar...our students learned by example what it takes to be a great filmmaker." -- Instructor Jim Burnstein, University of Michigan

Quentin Tarantino and many other noted filmmakers learned from my books, bestsellers that are known as "Bibles of Independent Filmmaking." You also may have read those same books. But when you enroll in one of my workshops or attend one of my lectures or seminars, you learn first-hand with me as your personal mentor!

Do you love action films, comedy, drama or horror flicks? Have you always wanted to make your own movies? John Russo Movie Making may be just for you!

John Russo, along with his buddies George Romero and Russ Streiner, co-created the classic Night of the Living Dead™. The movie has become the bedrock of today’s prosperous horror film industry. Now you can learn from the fellows who made it happen.

Russo's numerous movie making books are known as bibles of the industry. You'll learn everything from high-end camera operation to the finer points of blocking shots and directing talent. Plus you’ll discover the secrets to securing financing for your movies, negotiating contracts and how to get your projects into theaters.

I have had a long, exciting career, and I'm still a working professional who has made and continues to make movies of all types, from TV spots, music videos and documentaries to theatrical features. It started with NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and continues right up to the present with my horror comedy in post-production under the title MY UNCLE JOHN IS A ZOMBIE!

Jump-start your career! Become a working professional!
