    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.

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

    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.
