UNPARALLELED ACCESS TO SUCCESS

 

"I've been on trips and courses with 'professionals' over the years, but they have never even approached this high level of education and learning. The experience has been amazing! The training was 100% the best. Guy is always at your disposal, diving for you, not just with you, and a constant source of incredible information. He knew right away where I could improve, and completely adapted to my needs. I have never learnt so much in such a short time!...."
(Bernat Garrigos, 2017)

 

"My Hollywood-based company specialises in underwater filming, and being up to date with all the latest and best skills are vital to my business. Liquid Motion's Guy Chaumette is considered by most as one of the very best Filmmakers in the profession. I was honoured to dive and film alongside him. He helped me hone my diving techniques, and he gave a me a new set of camera and film skills, that I will use for life. If you are looking for valued, trusted, completely professional cinematography training, Liquid Motion Academy is absolutely the only place to go...".

"As a professional, I learnt more in the past week than I have in the last 10 years! The film programs are about so much more than just the technical. They are about the difference between video footage and film.."
(Tim Kirkpatrick, USA)

"I chose Liquid Motion Academy over The L.A. Film School, because I wanted to learn more than just filmmaking; I wanted to learn the art of film - how to make a difference. It’s incredible how much I learnt in such a short time!. Everything about the teaching is tailored and adapted to you. The Academy gives you a totally different perspective towards every aspect of photography and film, while giving you the freedom to grow, create, and choose your own. It was so refreshing that I did not have to follow a schedule or adapt to anyone else's agenda. I highly recommend LMA to anyone, whether beginner or professional. It was a uniquely productive journey, and an amazing, highly personalized experience".
