There is a wealth of information coming out every day in the media creation field that is interesting, informative, and that can improve the way we work. After trying to keep track of these different snippets through emails to myself with their links, or bookmarking them in my browser, Flipboard app’s Personal Magazine feature (currently available for Apple and Android devices) gave us a chance to create our own archive of articles, updates, and blogs. That would help us both keep them archived for future use and reference, and would also be a resource for emerging film students attending our Legacy Media Institute (legacymediainstitute.org) Workshops.
Our Magazine, “Independent Filmmaking” only available through the Flipboard app, has since become one of the leading magazines there on the topic of Filmmaking. In fact, because of the rapid growth of articles and subscriptions to “Independent Filmmaking,” Flipboard has elevated it from a Personal Magazine to one of Flipboard’s Featured Magazines.
In the archives we include everything we find of interest from across the web in all facets of the filmmaking process from scriptwriting through production to post-production and distribution of independent films. We try to stay away from stories about the “usual suspects”/latest Hollywood releases, unless there is something applicable for the smaller independent filmmaker.
We currently have over 600 archived articles, with a rapidly expanding roster of independent filmmaker subscribers, and both are growing each day.
To access the magazine, open up the Flipboard app on your Apple or Android device (it works much better on tablets, but articles do show up on phones), search for “Filmmaking” in the search box, and click on “Independent Filmmaking.”
