So I've started my own film festival.
I've spent the past year submitting my animation to about 25 film festivals and although there's still lots to learn I found that applying was more like paying for job interviews. If you didn't get it, you won't get any feedback - just an automated message. So I thought what the heck, let's make my own.
So I made Feedback Film Festival through FilmFreeway with the soul aim of giving good detailed feedback on every entry, pointing out the great bits and suggesting improvements. It's had submissions and it's gone down surprisingly well. So, in its second month I've setup a Thunderclap to see if this could be something real.
In case you don't know, Thunderclap is a similar concept to Kickstarter although there's no money. There's a single message. If 100 people support it within the week, that message will be tweeted / facebook'd out automatically at the same time through everyone's feed to give it the best oomf. If it gets 99 people supporting it, nothing happens and we all go our separate ways.
So, if you think its a good idea, please check out the Thunderclap and throw me some support - and of course share it around! I've got 7 days!
