We appreciate your participation, loyalty, and feedback over the years. We’re going to transition you to our new All Access membership, until your anniversary date of renewal (when you originally signed up on the Hurlbut Academy).

If you are an Annual Member

  • Annual members will be transitioned and continue their membership on the Filmmakers Academy platform until the anniversary date of your renewal (when you originally signed up on the Hurlbut Academy). *You will be given an extension in length of membership if your last annual payment was more than the special introductory price.
  • Credit Card Customers: Your credit card will automatically be charged on your anniversary date of renewal at the special introductory rate of $396. You will receive an email 10 days prior to your card being charged.
