We’re Making a List

One of the most important things in the film business is networking. The more people you know, the better chance you have of working on something big and cool.

Since we started blogging on Phantom Moose, we’ve been blown away by the number of talented teen filmmakers we’ve met. Some of you have even emailed us and asked if you could help out with the next film. That’s great, and we love meeting young filmmakers like ourselves. Which is why we’re announcing a new project.

The idea is to create a list of teen filmmakers, with a short description of what they do, and a link to their blog or Web site. Then we’ll post the list on Phantom Moose. Those on the list would either post the list on their sites, or post a link back to the list here on Phantom Moose.

What are the benefits of being on this list? Suppose that you are working on a big movie project. You write the script and discover that you’re going to need some cool CG special effects. You know nothing about that sort of thing, and you can’t think of anybody who does. With this list, you can see who does CG special effects, go to their Web site, and get in touch with them.

This can be repeated for nearly any task that you need done. Now you’re collaborating with other people, getting them involved, and your project can become better than you’d expected. That’s the power of collaboration.

How do you get on the list? Here’s what we need from you. Head over to the contact form and shoot us an email. We need your name, Web site URL, and a brief (50 words max) description of what you do. We’ll check out your site and get back to you.

If you don’t yet have a Web site, there’s no time like the present to get one. Check out WordPress.com or Blogger to register a free blog.

We hope to hear from you soon!

  1. Is this list for film-makers in general or specifically for your next film?

    If the former is true, than a separate website might be best. It could be centered around a Jobs or Projects forum as well as a list of film-makers in various fields.

  2. It’s really for filmmakers in general, though we’ll certainly use it for our next film.

    For now, we’re going to host it here, but if it gets too big to be one page on our site, we’ll start looking into running another site. That’s a call for you to get on the list and tell others about it. If you don’t grow it, it won’t be big enough for that. I’d love to be forced to start another site. 🙂

  3. Great idea! I’ve toyed around with the idea of starting a Filmmakers forum or something. This is a great place to start. I’ll head on over to the Contact form right now! 🙂
