I like to know, both the love and the hate. It's debatable whether this sort of knowledge is a good or bad thing for a filmmaker, but for me -- as a producer -- I find it invaluable. Yeah, I have Google Alerts set for the films I have coming out, and the filmmakers generally too. But I have often wondered what's being said in the social networks. What's being said there?
I confess: I am truly new to all of this social networking stuff. This blog is about two and a half months old. I think I have only been on Facebook for 5 weeks. Our film production company has a MySpace page but I am not a MySpace member. I know I blog about some stuff here that the digi-elite embraced eons ago. Let's just say although I am a newbie, I am passionate advocate -- and a textbook example of how you can teach an old dog some new tricks. And I recognize how much my community has to learn. Admit it: the film biz is filled with Luddites.
I meet with filmmakers and film executives on a daily basis. And I am consistently reminded what an absolute bunch of luddites we all are. Seriously. We will be unable to move forward towards a Truly Free Film culture until people commit to using the tools available to us to have a better life.
"Links" have been renamed here at TFF, transforming into "Resources" to distinguish them from the recently added "Tools". I think it is pretty self explanatory.
A place to capture and share ideas, experiment with and exchange links and resources about the adoption challenges, strategy, and ROI of nonprofits and social media.
