Llegamos a nuestra meta de £800! Gracias a todos aquellos que nos ayudaron a recaudar fondos para el @International Citizen Service (ICS) !!!
We are offering low cost film services in order to fundraise for the International Citizen Service, a programme that gives 18 to 25 the opportunity of going to a third world country to work in International Development. It is a fantastic experience, which gives many people a great opportunity of working abroad in social projects that will be focused on rights of women, working with people with disabilities and making people aware of HIV and AIDS.
Have a look at our work here.
We are also organising a Reiki event in London for those who are interested. Minimum donation is £15. Please have a look here.
Thank you all for your support!
You can also contribute directly through our JustGiving Page!

Always hire a behind the scenes photographer
If you have a photographer that is on set while you shoot you save SO.MUCH.TIME. It does the other half of the work for you: publicising your film. You can put up the pictures on the IMDb page of your film, on your blog, on your company website, on your own IMDb profile, etc.
Hire a student in photography for example, so they can also use that work for their portfolio and when you put it up on the web you publicise their work and vice versa! Imagine them putting up the photos of your film on their own websites with their own list of readers.
It’s marketing on the palm of your hand. Plus, you can always give them more experience in the future with another project.
Improve your IMDb profile!
You don’t need to have won or being nominated for Festivals in order to be on IMDb. You only need a link to your film to enter it.
The less complete your IMDb profile is and the less views it has, well the longer they will take to add the updates to your profile. But have patience! Little by little as you build it up, they take less time. At first when you add a new film with new cast and crew, they will take around four weeks. If the film is already on the database but you add cast or crew, they will take around two weeks. But as you add more information or films on your profile they will do the updates in shorter time, because you appear as a trust-worthy/known person. To the point of applying the updates from one day to the other.
They take ages in the Christmas period though…
They also have a great forum where you can ask them questions, after having read the FAQ page of course!
Please note: if you are adding a new TV series for example, you will need to have a confirmation that a TV channel has already agreed to distribute it later. Also, unless you are very known they won’t accept films as “announced”. You will have to have something that proves that you are filming it or have filmed it already.
An IMDb profile will definitely improve your reputation and put you in the first pages of Google searches. Plus, it is very cool when you are sending a CV or application and refer the employer to your IMDb profile. Oh, and add pictures.
Did you know that you can do an IMDb resume for free? And you can add pictures for FREE as well!! They charge you if you want to put up a poster for your film ($20) and photos in the film itself ($10 each), but not on your profile.
