Movidiam's New Creative Network Will Help You Find Filmmakers, Manage Projects, & Get Paid

Movidiam
One of the most important parts of being a filmmaker is also one of the most difficult: making connections. The ability to find, contact, and work with potential collaborators is something that a new creative network, Movidiam, is trying to make a more painless and simple process.

Founded by George Olver and Alex Vero, who share over 20 years of film experience, Movidiam is a global creative network that connects filmmakers with brands and agencies who are looking to collaborate on film projects, potentially making the process of finding work, hiring talent, and getting paid more streamlined and efficient. Creating a profile is free all across the board, whether you're a brand, agency, or filmmaker, and organizing and managing projects, as well as communicating with your team, happens all within the platform.

Here's how it works

Brands, agencies, and filmmakers are able to create their free profiles, upload their portfolios, and showcase their work. Brands interested in creating content can search through Movidiam's network of creatives, from production companies to filmmakers to find desired collaborators. Agencies commissioned with a brand's project can search the platform's database for a filmmaker that is right for the job. 

Movidiam Profile

Managing projects on Movidiam seems simple as well. Calendars, timelines, to-do lists, as well as a secure payment system means that you can take your film from "concept to completion" remotely -- scheduling, uploading pertinent documents, revising, speaking with your director, DP, etc. is all done from one central place, which is a nice alternative to having to juggle several apps.

Movidiam Project Manager

Features 

  • Connect globally with brands, agencies and filmmakers
  • Profile work and create amazing portfolios
  • Manage all your projects and organise teams in one place
  • Pay and get paid using our secure payment system
  • Keep track of feedback, revisions and project communications
  • Become part of the global creative filmmaking community

Now, I haven't come across a single application that takes care of every filmmaker's individual needs, but Movidiam seems to offer an impressive array of desired features that could help you out on your next project. They official launch later this year, but until then, it's definitely worth a look. You can pre-register now to receive two months' free access to ‘Project Pro’, which lets you use all of the project management features.

It's interesting seeing this space get more crowded. First there was the client review platforms like Wipster, then team discussion, organization, feedback, etc. with frame.io. Now this takes it to another level and adds a kind of social network plus deeper project management. Really want to check this out!

Like all services like this, it will only work if it has a community. They are offering a ton to users though.

Super stoked for this. I've been meaning to just get more invested in the independent film making community as a whole. What with the new NoFilmSchool, this website, and even just diving into the Vimeo community a bit more, I'm pretty excited about the future and the collaborative possibilities it might hold.

Can someone explain me the major differences between this announced "Movidiam" Network and the "Creative District" Network, that NFS recently informed about (http://nofilmschool.com/2014/03/technicolor-creative-district-social-net...)?

Movidiam gives more In-Depth features and tools for Filmmakers, where as Creative District is more an "Contact/Connection" Site.

Will this be the new "Facebook" and "Twitter" for Filmmakers? :D

I think it`s just what you said; Movidiam promises to give more tools so a filmmaker has a showcase and eventually get hired by agencies and then maybe that filmmaker can search people on Creative Distric to make a crew. I see it like that. This would mean a lot more than just FB and Twitter for the film industry (:

i dunno how many real jobs will come out of this but we are always looking for Movi techs and operators in NY so this would be good if our regular guys are booked up.
it will also make a good competitive market for it
