Let's get down to business. First off, welcome to the website! We hope you find this project appealing and join the cause. We are going to build a large online community. It's very important that people stay in contact and pass this around to anyone that has an interest in entertaining with film. All aspects of film making will be represented. Everyone will be given a chance to give tips and hints, showcase their work and possibly find work through networking with other people in the community. Since this website will be the main hub for everything posted, you will need a tour of sorts. Everything will be posted in the HOME tab up top.
This website enables creators to choose different categories for each post, so we will use those to help sort out the information. These will include: Informative Books, Project Outlines, Vlogs and Tips.
Since we will be providing actual school projects for you to try out on your own time, they will be posted under the Project Outline category. Hopefully these will give you content ideas and help you build or enhance your demo reel. The Vlogs will be a video diary of our attempts at making these school projects and other projects that our production company will be attached to. Hopefully you will be able to learn from any mistakes we make. Reading is an important part of film making. When we come across a book with great content that you can use to make better films, we will share it under the Informative Books category. The Tips category will be used for any direct tutorials or lessons. We have connected with many established online programs that produce "how-to" tips and will post their videos up every once in a while in addition to our own. Some people have been asking how they can share their work/projects with the community. Our answer to that is the SHARE YOUR SCHOOL PROJECTS tab. It will have a little bit of a guideline that you can follow, but feel free to add any additional information you may find helpful to other "students". You can also post any project descriptions that have not been mentioned on this site that you enjoy and would like others to try out.
We're going to keep this fresh and fun. We'll introduce you to different things. We hope you visit us every week. Share it with your friends. The bigger the community the better the experience will be for everyone involved. Interact with comments and video responses. Vote on the polls! This whole project is meant to help everyone learn and replicate an environment where you can be surrounded by others that have similar interests. Thanks for checking us out! *We had been debating on whether or not to make this a Vlog or a Blog. Since nobody needs to see Matt's face in order to learn something, we chose this. Do you feel it's important to have a "host" guide you along? It's up to you really. Vote on the poll below to make the decision.
