Publisher and Film Journalist Kami Spangenberg founded ClassicCouple.com and ClassicCoupleAcademy.com. These media outlets were created to share the love for the art and craft of filmmaking with interested audiences. The Classic Couple brand and all of its affiliated platforms and projects provide a place of discovery where film fans can learn about motion pictures and film history—from those studying the past and those making the films of today.
Our registered trademark Filmmaker 5® content series highlights the work of filmmakers through exclusive interviews about their projects. We probe all aspects of the filmmaking process from inspiration and collaboration to production, and promotion, giving filmmakers a platform to share their visions in their own words. Our Filmmaker 5® content series attracts film festival promoters and goers from around the world as we feature filmmakers and their films showcased at a variety of film festivals the Classic Couple and our team of film journalists attend and cover as credentialed film industry media.
For fun fact-sharing and edutainment, we offer free online courses and occasionally present guest lectures on film-related topics. And, we have a shop offering unique gifts for film fans at HollywoodWares.com.
