Rather than you having to navigate the whole world wide web and find stuff that might just be helpful to you, we have done some of the hard slog and gone out and put together a whole list of resources and information worthy of your attention as an emerging indie filmmaker or someone who wants to get into film and TV with a specific skill. The visuals are FREE to use so dive in and make use of those. So, please use the list of resources below and come back again and again as we will update regularly. Of course, if you have ideas then please send those through to us.
We'd love to know about any resources that you think would benefit our community. Please click here to make a resource suggestion.
We have compiled numerous short “visual” videos which are FREE for you to download and use in anyway you choose to in your own filmmaking endeavours. They are only 15 secs long although some are shorter. We will be adding more each month to create a comprehensive and growing free resource.
Over time we would will love to add some visual clips from other filmmakers , you would be credited but would need to allow them to be used for free as we are. If you are interested in that, please get in touch.
One of our core pieces of work during the pandemic has been to create video podcasts with inspiring filmmakers with something good and helpful to say. Our huge thanks to those who have given their time. We will continue this over the coming year BUT do look at what we have already , we think it is pretty impressive. We have lots of really interesting people lining up too, some well known and some with great stories but just starting out and breaking into their filmmaking.
You can view the video podcasts below and play the audio versions from here. However it would help us immensely if you went and subscribed to the OSBD YouTube page where you will find these and lots of other OSBD films to watch and share.
We have curated a number of “how to” videos and resources that are out there for free to help you gain insights and skills into your filmmaking. Over time we will be building this up much more. If you come across some great ones that are not here then email us about them and we will add them in.
