What do films like The Tree of Life, Battleship, Independence Day, No Country For Old Men, Dazed and Confused, True Grit (2010), and Armageddon all share in common? Each of these (along with many others) was filmed in whole or in part, on location in the great state of Texas.

Texas has a growing reputation as a film industry hotspot, with Austin in particular gaining traction as a favorite hub for indie filmmakers. However, local productions and major motion pictures are regularly filmed all across the state, thanks in part to the diversity of scenery available and in part to generous incentives offered to filmmakers by Texas film-friendly state government.

Here on this page, youll find profiles of a number of filmmaking professionals who have all received top-shelf training as students of the Film Connection Film Institute of Texas. Rather than studying in college classrooms, these talented individuals were personally mentored and trained in real production houses and on real film sets by some of the top filmmakers in the industry today--and each of them is uniquely qualified to meet your own film production needs.
