With the amount of competition already present in the film industry, we felt compelled to go down a different path and focus instead on collaborations and a mutually beneficial awareness of resources. And so began our series of articles called Do You Know?, in which we will be introducing you to resources, blogs, services, etc. that focus on empowering filmmakers.
Filmmaker meet Vimeo. Vimeo meet filmmaker. Oh, you already know each other? Of course you do. Vimeo is the go-to for high quality video hosting and has long been home to the most beautiful videos on the Internet – with a lot less distractions (oh look, KITTENS!) than on big brother YouTube. You’ve almost certainly also seen their Vimeo Staff Picks; a collection of short films and documentaries highlighting the best and the brightest among new filmmaking talent.
But do you know the Vimeo Video School?
Video School is a curated archive of videos on Vimeo that will help you learn about filmmaking through tutorials, lessons, advice, case studies and interviews with industry pros and creatives. All for the collective betterment of the visual medium and all of us who are trying to master it.
