“Attending Lee's workshop has been one of the best choices - if not the best - that I've made as an aspiring filmmaker. My expectations were far exceeded. I began on day 1 having absolutely no practical knowledge of the industry, nor a path in which I could be confident; and I left on day 2 with a solid foundation of information that will benefit me for the rest of my career. My line of thinking transitioned from "Do I belong here?" to "I definitely belong here!". Lee's workshop was a game-changer for me, and I am so incredibly stoked to continue on this journey.”
KYLE GORSKI - NEW FILMMAKER FROM ARIZONA

“I had the privilege of attending Filmmaker GPS with Mr Lee Chambers at the Chandler International Film Festival Jan 2020. Mr Chambers is an extremely talented educator and has a wealth of experience to share concerning independent film making. His sharing was engaging and lively, and helped everyone in the audience gain deeper insights into the film industry! Highly recommended workshop for anyone interested in film making or film makers looking for more inspiration and motivation.”
ERIC WONG - FILM DIRECTOR FROM SINGAPORE

 

"Thanks for sharing valuable info in your presentation! As someone trying to break into the industry, you helped provide me with useful insight that I'll definitely look back on. Great speaker and very personable.”
DIEGO GUZMAN - COMPOSER

"Lee was an insightful informative guest. I've already had information hungry filmmakers asking me to have him on again. He is a great conversationalist  with a good

sense of humor and brings a lifetime of experience

and expertise to the discussion."
MATT NAPPO - HOST OF MINDDOGTV
