Good stuff Chris.

ATTENTION TO EVERYONE:

I've made this a sticky thread so we can keep one database of any resources for indie filmmaking that we find. Please add anything you think is worthy. Please keep off topic posts and meta-posts to a minimum (or I'll klenze them) so we can keep this an easy thread to read for any new visitors.

Thanks!

I've learned that www.imdb.com is a great way to check out (and even verify) potential fellow filmmakers to help out. In this industry, there are few serious people, plenty of talkers and a couple of strange ones. I ran into a strange one recently, hence me posting this.

Hey Heath, I was looking at all the search options on IMDB. Is there a certain way you searched that allowed for "Location" etc? If so, can you point me to the page? They have 4-5 different searches, but none are giving me a "Location" search!

Thanks..

Excellent resource for screenwriters. They have a screenwriting contest rating system that is very comprehensive. They also regularly publish interviews with screenwriters who have just landed their first sale.

Work with people you know, or know of. A friend of mine and I (and a crew) got burned. Or at least have a rock-solid contract.
