 You ever dream of being a published author?

 Song writer?

 To make movies?

 

 

 

Here is some useful information about publishing, song writing, writing screenplays, and film.  I did some digging into this and have included several research and resource web-sites.  Self-publishing/doing it yourself is one way to get your ideas or whatever you wish to get printed.  You may research and find one you like better.

The best piece of advice I can offer is to choose the one with the best over-all package that fits your needs.  This is truly one of the areas where you get what you pay for, meaning if a company offers a really sweet price but no marketing, editing, layout support... verses a slightly more expensive company but they do offer all the those resources, it may pay off in the long run.

 

 
Use your best judgment, when you look into your options. But here are some research links…

Film/Video

 

You ever dream of seeing yourself on the big screen?  Or watched a movies and thought I could do better.  Perhaps you just have an passive interest...Well the following links may help.

 

There are many avenues you can take.  This day and age being an independent filmmaker is rather easy... the hard part is being creative enough to produce something worth watching.

 

Every city has film festivals.  They are great fun, you get to see what other visionaries have created.  They did not just dream of doing something but have actually accomplished their dream... And you can too!

Of course as with any project there are liabilities, permits, cost, and other risk to consider.  So as with anything you decide to tackle, it is highly recommended you do some heavy research.  Each state has a film/arts commission of some sort, I would recommend you check with them for any available resources.

 

Good Luck!
