The film industry has been cracked wide open by the digital/internet revolution, making it easier than ever for filmmakers to get their films made and out into the world.
But the downside is: everybody’s a filmmaker now. With 50,000 films each year getting made, it’s harder than ever for filmmakers and screenwriters to get their voices heard through the noise.
I’ve written, directed, and produced five feature films, and have been a filmmaker for over 26 years. Over that span of time, I’ve put together a bunch of great little tools and documents that have helped give my productions a fighting chance when it comes to raising film money, or getting my scripts in front of agents and producers.
And recently I started The Filmmaking Store because, yes, I’d love to make money off of my hard work putting these products together, but also because I believe these unique film production documents and products can help other filmmakers like you save time with your film business plan, save money hiring a lawyer to draw up your film investment documents, raise film money for your films, get your scripts to agents and name talent, and a whole lot more.
The Filmmaking Store isn’t a place to come to buy all the standard run-of-the-mill products you can find anywhere, such as screenwriting software, storyboard software, etc. It’s a place for truly unique, one-of-a-kind products that fill a very specific need for filmmakers.
Whether it’s blank forms for call sheets, day out of days, crew lists, crew deal memos, talent release forms, script authorship agreements, film business plans, film investment documents, or even super-specialized training courses that teach how to set up and run your own script reading business, The Filmmaking Store has got you covered.
