So quite a few weeks back I got an email from Technicolor
As an avid video-creator and user of the Cinestyle profile from Technicolor, we are excited to invite you to the exclusive private beta of Creative District!
Creative District is a professional social network for film and media makers, where you can get the support you need to complete your projects by collaborating with other filmmakers.
I created an account but at the time there wasn't much you could do, other than look at people's projects.
Since then, Creative District has opened their doors up to all Filmmakers and the network has begun to grow. Right now there's about 7700 people signed up globally. The platform itself looks pretty promising, similar to LinkedIn, but exclusively to people in the Creative industry. Their aim is to have anyone from Producers to Actors, Directors to Sound guys and Composers using the platform to base their projects off. Each month, you have a chance to win $5000 towards your project.
The Open Collaborations part looks pretty sweet, people can put out crew and casting calls for their projects, you can then apply for those positions. It's pretty small right now and there's only about 20 people in New Zealand on it at the moment but the more people that sign up to the platform, the better it's going to get. I've been telling friends about it who are now telling their friends to get on there. I think this site has potential, but I wanted to know what everyone else thought and what they'd like to see in the future.
