Lloyd has taught the “Make Your Own Damn Movie Master Class” at prestigious academic institutions such as Yale University and University of Southern California, as well as overseas at institutions like the St. Petersburg Film Museum in Russia, Perth Film Festival in Australia and Norwegian Film Development. Make Your Own Damn Movie Master Class is an informative, interactive and highly entertaining crash course on filmmaking, aimed at anyone who’s ever wanted to make movies but doesn’t have the cash.

Just look at any film created by the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Takashi Miike, Peter Jackson, Eli Roth, Gasper Moe and James Gunn, to name a few, and you are likely watching a film influenced Class of Nuke ‘Em High, Tromeo & Juliet, or Citizen Toxie.” – Stan Lee – creator of Spider-Man “Lloyd’s Master Class not only sparks the interest and attention of young and independent filmmakers, but Lloyd also gives insight into the distribution process which many young filmmakers tend to neglect the importance of.” -David Franco, Film Program Director Full Sail College “The Make Your Own Damn Movie Master Class by Lloyd Kaufman was extraordinary! It was certainly a great addition to our Film Festival and we were very fortunate to have it. Everyone loved the Master Class and learned a lot from it. The Master Class is now the talk of the town here in Phoenix.” -James Schoepflin, Festival Coordinator Intl. Horror & Sci-fi Film Festival "I just attended this class earlier this morning at Salem Cinemas. It was not only a wonderful class, but Lloyd is so personable that it was really an unforgettable experience. This workshop is imperative to anyone aspiring to make movies or even to anyone that just appreciates the art of independent film!" -Blythe Sloan-Starr

Legendary film artist whose larger than life persona motivates you to strip away of everything and pursue film existence.
"And you may ask yourself
Am I right? Am I wrong?
And you may say yourself, "My God! What have I done?"

If you're a fan of Troma, definitely worth checking out! Having a look around the Troma Studios and hanging out with Lloyd & the Troma team was worth it. They were all very nice and informative. As for the class itself, it was what I thought it would be. There were time's that the class would get off topic, but I didn't really mind. I only wished I had more time to talk/meet with others that were taking the class. I really only had one brief conversation with another student during a quick break. But by the end we were all leaving at separate times because the class had gone on longer than expected. I feel like with any film related class, there should be time for some networking. But still had a great time overall!

This is an iconic and eye opening class. Thanks!

Very informative, open minded, and fun class. An in depth look at Troma’s take on art and filmmaking. I would recommend for any filmmaker interested in expanding their knowledge.

Unique and memorable, Lloyd makes the impossible seem attainable. He’s full of stories and jokes, would go again!
