“What do you want to see in the next version of this website?” We asked in 2011. We asked again in 2012. We heard you loud and clear, and we were hoping to launch the new version in 2013. We could’ve simply added a few things — a better search function, improved commenting – but it turned out, as with everything I do, “good enough” was not, in fact, good enough. It had to be great.

Behold our new logo! While our complete site redesign is still a ways off, we’re premiering this new logo, very cleanly designed by David Ceraso, right away on our present site. We are also no longer “NoFilmSchool” or “No Film School” — henceforth we are simply “nofilmschool,” which is how I wrote it when I originally launched the site anyway. We will thus save ourselves (and you) the trouble of hitting the space or shift keys. We hope you like the new logo (and if you’re lazy how could you not like the new capitalization, or lack thereof?). Read on for some further pontification, as well as some news on our coverage of this year’s installment of the world’s largest film/video tradeshow, NAB. More »

It’s been almost three years since I launched this site in its present form; the design as it is now is the same as it was then. Aesthetically I don’t mind it, but there are a lot of functions and features we could have that we don’t. A year ago I ran a poll about what should be in the next version, but I never ended up having the bandwidth to design it myself (I’m trying to make my first feature at the same time, after all), and so we’ll be working with a design firm to take the site to the next level. I’ve been preparing a design spec, and I have a good idea of what I want to see in the next iteration (and the next, and the next). However, above all else this site is here for you guys — so please let us know what you’d like to see in the relaunch and we will consider everything! More »

Welcome to the new nofilmschool!

01.21.10 @ 4:57PM Tags : ,

Thanks for visiting the new nofilmschool: a site for independent creatives and multi-hyphenates. If you’re a filmmaker, writer, editor, producer, blogger, designer, or entrepreneur — or more than one of these — I hope you’ll find the upcoming content helpful.

Find out who I am on the new About page, watch Ten stunning examples of DSLR cinematography, and if you’re interested in high-quality, low-cost filmmaking check out my brand new 10,000-word feature The DSLR Cinematography Guide. A sampling of upcoming articles include “12 free tools for Mac creatives,” “WordPress for filmmakers,” “Gmail for social creatives,” and other how-to articles, productivity tips, interviews with independent creatives, and embedded short films and series.

nofilmschool will feature a new post every weekday at noon. To stay in the know, subscribe to RSS, email updates, or find me on Twitter or Facebook. Also, this is a brand new site design (pardon the mess if anything’s broken), so please leave feedback!
