Filmmakers Get A New Social Network


Pronounced: Mo-vid-ium 

Over the past few years there have been several apps and websites popping up to streamline the filmmaking process. Some organize scripts and storyboards, while others help distribute the film once it's completed. There are even sites like Filmkin, which markets itself as "The Social Network for Filmmakers". Although the functionality of Filmkin is all there, the overall design is clunky and there is a serious lack of users.

Movidiam (pronounced mo-vid-ium) takes on a fresh new approach to film networking, and aims to tackle every aspect of the filmmaking process from inception to creation to completion. Take a look at the video below to see what it's all about.

Before you get too excited to hop on and join, I should tell you that the network is not live yet. You can enter your email to get the latest updates on when it does go live, but for now all we can do is gawk at the fancy graphics and videos on their website. We can't know what kind of impact this will have until it does actually go live, but the professional feel of the website may attract professional filmmakers and brands. Aside from the networking side of it, there also seem to be additional helpful features like call-sheet creation and budget management.

Movidiam will be free to use when you first sign up, although to access all of the features there is a hefty $25/month price tag. I'm not sure if I'll be able to afford that, but we'll see how instrumental this new social network can be.
