A collaborative group supporting each other's creative endeavors.
The Creative Collective's primary mission is to provide creative and financial opportunity to its members through collaboration and supporting each-others endeavors.
All members are free to contribute as much or as little as they desire.
Ok, so what is Creative Collective?
Creative Collective in an invitation-only forum for collaboration.
But really, it's just formalized format to find like-minded creatives and share ideas, learn from each other and hopefully a chance to get inspiration and grow creatively.
All the while, we are looking to create financially viable content, or at least, learn more about what is financially viable.
And who is invited?
Right now, it's mostly a small group of filmmakers with some overlapping skillsets in production.
For example, this arrangement gives us some ability to rely upon each other to perform tasks we usually do ourselves on projects, giving the project owner the opportunity to focus on big picture tasks and creative decision-making.
We plan to start inviting other entertainment professionals as we see where needs arise, but the goal is to keep it close-knit and to hopefully allow for relationships to grow within the collective.
I have an idea I want to share, what do I do?
And what if I don't really have all the details figured out?
Pitch us! One of the primary goals is to vet each others ideas, and if you can sell us, we will help you make it! It might be a bit intimidating but here, our goal is to help each other succeed.
Bring us your loose idea, maybe someone else in the collective will be interested and help you round out the details. Learning to collaborate on developing projects is just another aspect of the Creative Collective.
