Being an independent video producer, I manage my time between projects for clients and being hired by agencies and associates to work on their productions. For my virtual filmmaking friend Anders Overgaard, working on his own was fun, until one day, it wasn't and he teamed up with a group of filmmaking friends to form a production company. Based in Norway, Anders film company is called VJUS and in the first two years of operation, Anders kept a video diary of the companies ups and downs. It was a rollercoaster ride and this content is now an insightful and fun web series. Something all content creators will connect with. I caught up with Anders to find out all about the series.
Episode One of Making a Film Company is below the interview.
The truth is, people use YouTube for search, like a visual Google, no wonder Google bought it. Connecting people with products via advertising and affiliate links make it awesome if you are a creator and want to build revenue streams.
Whilst my YouTube channel, The Filmmakers Workshop is about filmmakers and providing in depth reviews and interviews, I cannot ignore what my audience want. In the main, they want answers; is camera X good in low light and does camera Y have great autofocus. As such, I've been making more short videos, sharing insight and providing a different kind of valuable, watchable content. This is the future of The Filmmakers Workshop - A little bit of this and a little bit of that. The FW is a business after all.
