This new website is to serve Brooklyn Young Filmmakers two program goals – and that’s why we have two blogs featured side-by-side on our home page.
This is BLOG #2 where we invite you to become part of our online SkillShares.
Have you checked out or Video Slideshow above?! You can flip through our different Channels! More on this below, after we tell you what to expect next door:
BLOG #1 we invite you to help us with our business plan for the People’s Hollywood Studio. Right now we are figuring out our numbers:
What will our start-up costs and monthly operating budget be for the People’s Hollywood Studio if it is housed in a 270 sq ft stall in the Moore Street Market in Bushwick?
We are currently negotiating wholesale relationships with vendors who might supply our filmmakers store and Brooklyn food artisan concession stand. You’ll want to read BLOG #1 if you:
1) are a vendor who is interested in discussing a possible wholesale relationship with BYFC
2) know a local vendor you love and want to recommend to us
3) are interested in (or teach) entrepreneurship development
AND HERE’S WHAT’S DOING WITH BLOG #2!
Brooklyn Young Filmmakers is taking our SkillShares about Careers in Film and our Storytelling Lessons online:
- to reach more people who are beginners (or who are parents and teachers of interested young beginners)
- to give more professionals the opportunity to teach and to give back in a way that is convenient and simple for them
We are creating our own video Channels focused on different topics. (For a list of our topics see below).
YOU CAN ADD TO THE ONLINE LEARNING!
When you view a video, please make a comment:
- giving additional information you have on the topic or sharing a story about your own experience
- asking a question that you hope we (or someone else reading your comment) can answer
If you are a student, hobbyist, or professional, in the future you will be able to submit your own video to us for possible posting if you think it fits one of the Channel topics. (More on this in later posts)
