Making movies requires connecting and working with a lot of different people such as actors, crew members, and editors just to name a few. Aside from connecting with the right people, filmmaking also requires finding resources like locations, props, and equipment. http://MoviePals.com is a feature-rich network that has tools and a unique system to make this process fast, fun and more productive. MoviePals' mission is to make film-making more accessible and empower people to make movies in a socially connected way.
One example that highlights how the network is distinct is MoviePals pitch system, a feature that encourages meaningful social interactions. A pitch is an invitation for someone to "accept" or request more information about an idea, plan, thought or comment. Every member gets to choose which types of pitches they’re interested in and who they’ll accept them from. Pitches help movies get made and encourage people to talk and promote themselves in an exciting and non-invasive way. Members only have to click a single button to respond (interested or not) and the "pitcher" receives an instant notification. The network will promote the most pitched users and users that have accepted the most pitches. The company believes that features like the pitch system are essential to fielding better opportunities and connections among filmmakers.
"We are creating better tools to help people make movies in a more connected and social way, but we’re really doing a lot more than that. We’re building an entire system to encourage, showcase and empower people to follow their filmmaking dreams and work together in their adventures. We’re not only a website, we’re an entire community of creativity; we hold events and create productions using the same tools, ideas and philosophies that our network embodies" says CEO Solomon Rothman.
MoviePals Entertainment, the company behind the website began as a collaborative filmmaking experiment by founder Solomon Rothman. He was searching for a way to connect with other artists; after using a plethora of social media sites and corresponding with people around the world, he collaboratively made a series of videos that received viral attention. He used this experience to refine a new innovative way to build a better filmmaking community. MoviePals.com has unique ways to connect, showcase talent and work on movie projects that are painfully unavailable on other movie networks.
MoviePals Entertainment is also developing a movie production studio with the goal of creating original feature films using talent and resources directly from the MoviePals.com network. MoviePals Entertainment has already gained international attention from both the mainstream and independent press (Los Angeles Times, NPR, ZDNET, AMC) from previous endeavors. http://MoviePals.com is officially launched and is already attracting filmmakers world-wide.
