Support is often the difference between those who are Living the Dream and those who are just dreaming; ReelProjects’ core purpose is to support members in the pursuit of their Reel Dreams. ReelProjects was created for those who contribute in any way, whether a single person or an entity, to the making of films, commercials or the filmmaking industry as a whole.
A business parallel: not that long ago, people spent a lot of time going to different stores, i.e., a store for food, another for clothes, another for electronics etc. One person took thriving industries and neatly packaged them all into one convenient location, and revolutionized how people shopped. Now think about the different elements of film/commercial making; that’s the essence of ReelProjects.
We strongly believe that our members should have a hand in shaping the company as the business grows, not some investor who only cares for the bottom line. We know there are thousands of websites for many of these services already; but nowhere can any website offer even half of what this can do in one spot; ReelProjects wants to help filmmakers stay organized, save time, and create more projects for everyone to work on.
When completed, ReelProjects will be the only website that incorporates all aspects of independent filmmaking from conception, acquiring funds, and legal guidance, through pre-production and the entire production process, and continuing into post-production editing, marketing, sales, and tracking. ReelProjects provides full directories for assembling cast, crew, gear, and locations. It offers tools and resources for educating, networking, competing, organizing, promoting and running their brand as a business. There are over 70 separate tools and resources that make networking and marketing to finding and creating projects more efficient and better organized; a few of these features include:
