Creativity. Storytelling. Filmmaking.

Geeking out. Common ground. Expanding horizons.

Stretching. Making. Experimenting. Collaborating. Inspiring.

Finding other multi-hat-wearing, high-quality craftsmen and kindred spirits. Synchronicity.

Energy. Enthusiasm. Encouragement.

We each have our own projects. Our own scripts and ideas and plans. This isn’t to co-opt those, even if we do get involved in each other’s schemes and dreams. It’s mostly just to share energy and positive momentum. Good ideas. Feedback. Gear. Connections. With the possibility of direct collaboration.

Everyone can bring their ideas to the group as they wish. So pages become workshops and workshops become test shoots and test shoots become editing exercises and editing exercises become scenes and scenes become shorts or trailers or even pieces of something bigger.

The Collective was sparked by a geeky moment in the digital timeline and the release of a specific camera, but the inspiration existed way before all of that. We’ve each been successfully baptised in cinema, be it low-budget indies or high-end commercials or cutting-edge games or whatnot. We’ve made pretty pictures, gripping drama, and tender moments. We’ve had our failures and our successes. We’ve suffered the agonies of writer’s block and the thrill of a final cut.

We see the evolution happening and we’re evolving right along with it.

That’s what this is all about. Jumping into the pool again, head first. Swimming a few laps. Making waves.

C’mon in. The water’s fine.
