I've used Pinterest for the past year or so as pre-vis tool, alone & with DPs, location folks & production designers. It's also a great way to walk investors through a movie or web show—a convenient, cleanly-organized "look book” that can be easily shared. The fact that boards can be kept private makes light security a snap.

I love Pinterest I find it very creative and inspiring.

Thanks for for including my board (Guerilla Filmmaking). I set this board up for myself just to store things I was interested in. Pinterest seems like a great way of bookmarking things for the visually inclined. I know Pinterest is a polarizing medium but I see it as just another useful tool. I don't 'pin' to be social – if someone does find my board useful it's something of a happy accident.

Cinephilia and Beyond

You're gonna love this:

I believe you're already familiar with the kind of audience Cinephilia and Beyond has managed to attract, a good deal of which are high profile names from the industry. The likes of Oliver Stone, Matt Reeves, Ted Hope, Shane Salerno, Don Winslow, Chuck Hogan, Brian Michael Bendis, Richard Shepard, Nacho Vigalondo and others are practically regulars here and visit Cinephilia on a daily basis. Please feel free to visit us any time.

There are better and clearer ways to parse resources. Pintrest seems like an unwelcome middleman.

I'd like to suggest a couple of Pinterest sources for/about women, Destri Martino's The Director List:, and my Wellywood Woman site which has info for and about women's filmmaking – women's festivals/ film opportunities/ film campaigns etc etc:


Well doggone it. Maybe it's early for some but I'm at work, so I'll go ahead and be the first to thank you. I admire what Pinterest does but I've been sitting on my invitation for so long.
