Brooklyn Young Filmmakers
PEOPLE'S HOLLYWOOD PROJECT
Why is this a great time to make our truth be shot? Because we -- people of color, women, working-class -- now represent substantial Film and Series niche markets, and the media we are creating is increasingly crossing over to "mainsteam" success.
There is a rapidly growning number of Series -- on networks, cable, and online -- with diverse casts focused on exploring cultural experiences -- thru humor, drama, sy-fy, horror, you name it. As people of color and women increasingly breakthrough as Directors, Producers, Actors, and Cinematographers, they are recruiting their own as Writers and as Crew.
Now everyone is shooting videos, even just to post online to share with family. Many are trying to create stories and to get better, self teaching with the help of YouTube instructural videos. And many are spending money to develop their passion projects -- not big money, but still money is being spent.
Our business plan is aimed at finding and serving this market, while also using them as community ambassadors to help spread information and interest in their local communities about filmmaking as a vehicle for both self-development and careers.
