The TFI team believes the conservatory model provides the optimum setting for craft masters to come alongside promising novices and guide them in the skills, the artistic reasoning, and the creative justification, to communicate through a digital art form.
At TFI we have been teaching creative scriptwriters and directors the lessons needed to reach their highest goals in the Faith Film Industry for the last five years. It's our goal to teach apprentice how to create positive, family-oriented life messages in the film industry.
We want to inspire Christians to tell their stories in the digital world. Our Slogan is; "There are many stories yet to be told, find your voice tell the world."
TRANSFORMATION FILM INSTITUTE
We will celebrate our seventh year in Ministry in June of this year. TFI started as a one-week Faith-based Film camp designed to help introduce people of faith to dramatic filmmaking, but over the years, it has evolved into a one-year program for faith–based film apprentices.
We invite potential filmmakers of all ages and skill levels to come and work on film projects with us as TFI apprentices. They come from all over the US and as far as South Africa, Mexico, and the Philippines. Apprentices come, they write, they shoot, and they post-produce projects.
TFI is a ministry based out of Frisco, Texas, and for us to continue providing this service to apprentices around the world, we need your help!
Our goal is to raise $150,000 for this year’s operations budget.
No matter the contribution's size, all contributors will receive a copy of our latest film and will be eligible to take one film class with us.
Please don’t put it off. Please do it now and donate any size to potential faith-based filmmakers who need your support. Now is the time!
