    suggestion Member Interaction

    So, there have been a decent amount of new people (including myself) signing up. And a good number of member films have been added to the showcase. With this, you would think there would be more chatter/reviews/feedback happening. So far I only know of about 2 or 3 people who have recently...

    misc Filmmaking Lesson Learned #2: Feedback (constructive) is Awesome

    So, with my first short film, I used Film Freeway to submit to over 20 festivals. Only 12 of those accepted the film, and we earned two wins, and the rest were either nominations or finalists. Using Filmfreeway, you discover quickly that there are many festivals that use the same copy/paste...

    marketing Lesson Learned Post

    I am a chronic screw up, its something I've dealt with my entire life. A mix of my stubborn attitude, my ignorance, and my past traumas mix together to create situations where I am always questioning what is the right thing to do. That said, I think I do have some good qualities. I am very...

    directing Business/Marketing vs Emotion/Art

    I'm not good with self publication, or making my opinions seem important. For years, I've tried in vain to become someone worthy of listening to. To become a role-model. To become a guru.

    suggestion Locking Old Threads

    I think older threads from several months prior should be locked. Chances are, the person has already been answered, and it will allow more discussion back and forth in real time, rather than expecting the OP to reply months later. I understand they can be resources and references for prior...
