Filmsourcing is a map-based online application, where anyone can list a filmmaking location, talent or other resource. It brings together filmmakers, business and property owners, location scouts and people with other unique assets, on an easy-to-use platform.
Filmsourcing harnesses the power of community to give independent filmmakers the fighting chance they need.
And why is Filmsourcing needed?
Because the old filmmaking business model is becoming increasingly obsolete. Before the internet, information was power. One gained advantage in the marketplace by withholding rather than sharing knowledge.
With the emergence of the web and open source development, this mentality is changing. To the children of the internet era, sharing information comes naturally. Through global sharing, resources multiply to the point where everyone gains. And everyone can contribute.
Whereas the old model only produced wealth for the studio heads and investors, open collaboration creates more freedom and opportunities for the filmmakers themselves.
Filmsourcing is the next step towards fully collaborative filmmaking.
The goal of Filmsourcing is to create value, connections and opportunities throughout the global filmmaking community.
Simply: the more resources we pool together, the more choice everyone has.
