Get Published - Write for Filmmaking.net!

By , posted 1 February 2006

filmmaking.net has launched a new monthly series of original articles covering the broad spectrum of areas in the filmmaking process. We're now seeking content from new and established writes to feature in this section.

What are we looking for? Articles on every aspect of making films. This includes:

  • how-tos and guides
  • reviews of filmmaking products
  • reviews/round-ups of broad filmmaking services
  • interviews with film practitioners
  • opinion pieces about the industry and/or sectors within it
Articles should firmly focus on the making aspects of the film process and should be written as articles ready to publish. We're not looking for film reviews (as that is beyond the scope of the site's purpose) or press releases.

What's in it for you? Filmmaking.net gets over 150,000 visits a month that represents fantastic exposure for your work! Unfortunately, we're not in a position just yet to pay for submissions, but we are very interested in helping promote our writers and their work as much as possible. Each article will be fully-credited and you have the option to have a full profile (with photo and link to your web site click on my by-line to see this in action) on filmmaking.net.

What do we need from you?
To submit an article for consideration, please email us with a brief synopsis of what the article is about. If we like the sound of it, we'll ask you to send over the following:

  • the text of your article, in digital format (Word, PDF, plain text)
  • any images that go with the article - images brighten up the page so the more you can supply, the better
  • if you want a profile on the site... your bio, mugshot, and web site link.
We'll also ask you to agree to a couple of legal points as well. These are:

  • License you retain all copyright in your work, however we need to you grant us a license to display your work on the site. Nothing tricky is needed here you simply must be happy that, by the action of submitting your article to us, you agree to grant us a royalty-free, perpetual, and non-exclusive license to display your work. In other words, the license is free (we aren't paying), it's perpetual (doesn't expire), and non-exclusive (you can use the article anywhere else you like).
  • You will also need to warrant that you are the copyright-holder of the work submitted, that you possess all the necessary rights and clearances to submit the work to us for publication, and that the work doesn't infringe on anyone's trademarks and/or patents.
