This isn’t the ‘90s. We’re not talking about a glorified Craigslist. Taking old business models and pasting them onto the internet is far from the best way to handle something as intricate as production in the digital age.

Hammond, IN (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
Present Day Media, a multimedia and technology company, just launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund development of a website codenamed FileProducer. Whereas sites like Facebook and Twitter use the internet to improve the way people keep in touch with each other, FileProducer envisions harnessing the internet to enhance the way people work together.
FileProducer is a web site which would allow users to request, sell, and donate customized files created by/for other users, all within a single interface. A departure from the typical outsourcing and freelancing websites, FileProducer is designed to accommodate both the professional and the hobbyist alike. Small, assembly line style tasks would be performed by site users, rather than asking for the completion of full projects. The website would utilize new features such as transparent communication, benchmarks (a fun, objective way to compare the skills of users), and free files, which together could allow for a degree of efficiency and productivity that has yet to be seen in the freelancing and outsourcing world.
“Growing up as a freelance multimedia producer, I learned pretty quickly that the existing methods for finding work were inadequate at best”, stated Josh Hanchar, founder of Present Day Media.
He added, “Efficiency, objectivity, and fun are all lacking in today’s freelancing sites. This isn’t the ‘90s. We’re not talking about a glorified Craigslist. Taking old business models and pasting them onto the internet is far from the best way to handle something as intricate as production in the digital age.”
“Whether you’re a writer, designer, musician, producer, or small business owner, if you’ve done freelance work or have outsourced work to others, you may have thought, ‘There just has to be a better way to go about this whole business.’ Well if we can get this thing developed, there very well could be.”
