There are now more films being made than ever before. With the cost of equipment being driven down and more graduates leaving film and drama school each year without viable career paths into the industry available to them, do it yourself micro-budget filmmaking is accessible to all and often the only way for actors, writers and filmmakers to be any part of their chosen field. While that is terrific in terms of creative outlet and often the arena geniuses can make their mark, it also carries a host of negative ramifications. In particular the safety and ethical treatment of those involved.
As well as incorporating the Joining Forces Campaign, ‘Drowning Room Only’ will be the first feature to demonstrate the potential of the Entrepreneurial Filmmakers Club. An initiative aimed to channel the ambitions and energies of those like-minded filmmakers, ready to go the extra mile, into a model that allows them to explore their creative worth in a safe protected and ethical way.
