ARTISTS RESOURCE DIRECTORY   

 

Our goal is to give the top (2) Writing Teams chosen in May 2020 from the Challenge  access to a wide array of volunteer consultants from our Artists Resource Directory when they self-produce their short films. 

A record number of people are volunteering in the USA, and NYC residents volunteer at an even higher rate -- up to  48% of us do! 

 

But if you work / train in the film and creative industries and have ever-changing schedules, where are your easy-to-plug-into (or reschedule) volunteer opportunities to share your skills and experiences?  

OUR ANSWER?  CREATING AN 

ARTISTS RESOURCE DIRECTORY   

Every Artist (from college student to professional level) who signs up on our Directory  makes a volunteer commitment to give a one-time (2) hour consultation to a team of adult beginners, arranged at the Artist's convenience. 

 

In addition, Musicians participating in our Music & Film Project  agree to allow one-time use of original music for the Team's short film soundtrack. 

 

WORK-IN-PROGRESS

.

We will announce Artists on this page as they sign up.  Our goal is to have at least (3) Artists in each job category.  Then Teams will have a choice of Artists to consult with, and if an Artist is unavailable when requested, there is another Artist to go to. 

.

We have set up a legend (for when we have a lot of Artists signed up!) so you'll be able to quickly search  by category.
