Calling Indie Producers and Directors
Wide Open Camera is gearing up it’s production arm this summer and we wanted to reach out to any filmmakers out there who may be interested in shooting some spec commercials.
For those of you who haven’t heard of this newly emerging but rapidly expanding market, there’s a whole new wave of “crowd-sourced” commercials that have taken the place of what was the traditional advertising model for years. Now, instead of hiring an ad agency and spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a single spot, companies have turned to websites such as Filmaka, Current, and Poptent for their commercial needs.
In the last year, I was lucky enough to sell two spots to Poptent. I cleared around $20K from that site alone. It actually worked! My whole outlook on this business is very different from how I think most people see it. I see this whole business as one big party. A giant collaboration waiting to happen. So what I’m looking to do, to help launch WOC’s expanded production ventures, is start outsourcing some of these spots. All the brands have creative briefs out there that are available to pretty much anyone, so in theory you don’t need us to do your own spots. However we would be more than happy to use our resources and talent to help you see your production come to life. Please contact us via email if you feel that we could help out your production in any way. Hit us up at email@example.com we are always down for a fun shoot.
