ABOUT MICROBE FILMS
Microbe Films is a home for filmmakers, web-series creators and other transmedia artists.
A place where you can not only help each other, but also get the specific personal help
from established professionals and educators so your individual projects can truly thrive.
The site is launched with four main elements:
Now we all have access to affordable technology that can take us from concept to audience
we no longer necessarily have to wait for permission to create screen content from people whose only interest is money. The production of screen content is affordable in a way that has never been seen before. By no longer having to wait for permission, our work is a living organism from the moment it is conceived: a "microbe" film that the artist can retain ownership of for as long as they want. This is certainly not an original philosophy. Screen artists have been trying to take control of their market by owning their work all the way to the audience since the days of Charlie Chaplin.
It's been tried over and over. But the difference now is that everyone has the opportunity.
We all know someone who is making a feature, or is pulling together a web series. It's no longer "I'm writing a script", it's, "I'm making it!" and the result is that the transmedia market is deluged with finished material that simply doesn't work or is just plain unwatchable. This is where Microbe Films comes in. The Microbe Films community is about you getting the help you need to make sure your next project is excellent. Here you work specifically on what you need: from designing your own classes with professionals to finding other artists to join your film family. Here you can even have your own password-protected preview theater, where you can share your work with other members of your choosing.
