ARTISTS RESOURCE DIRECTORY
The top (2) Writing Teams from our Challenge will have access to our Artists Resource Directory when they self-produce their short films.
Every Artist signed up on our Directory has made the commitment to volunteer a one-time (2) hour Consultation to a Team.
Adult beginners on the Team will have the opportunity to talk with and learn from those already doing it – from student to professional levels of development.
Making films is People-centric! Meeting and questioning those doing it introduces you to:
the seeds of artistry
the kind of faith that fuels determination
craftspeople who turn junk into treasure
basics of developing creative collaborations
It's possible that an Artist who gives you a (2) hour Consultation might end up liking your project and will mentor you through your shoot. It's even possible you may find Artists from the Directory who will be interested in working on your shoot for a small fee -- increasing the professionalism on your set.
If that happens it will be, yes, because you have a great script. But it also will be because the Artist likes you and the energy of your Team. Making films is People-centric!
Our Writing Team Challenge launches in January 2020. Recruitment for our Artists Resource Directory starts now with the launch of this website.
We will announce Artists on this page as we sign them up. On our Artists Profiles page Artists will be listed under their skills category (from directing, acting, and producing, to camera, lighting, sound, hair and make-up, wardrobe, props, location manager, etc.).
Musicians who sign up for our Directory are offering something very special in addition to a (2) hour Consultation! Musicians are offering one-time use of one of their songs for use in your short film.
It can be a song from the Musician's catalog of already published songs or music composed specially for your project.
For your Team to match music to your story before you shoot gives you the opportunity to have creative dialogues with an outside Artist about the mood and pacing you imagine for your-film-to-be. The music can become a building block for your Production Design.
