Transitioning to Filmmaking Day 1: Redesigning My Website
Today I finished the redesign of CreativeSpark.ai. The site was previously primarily focused on promoting other filmmakers, while I stayed in the background. That's because I was more of an influencer then a creator. Don't get me wrong, I did create, but the split was basically 70% / 30% (influencer / creator). I have to flip that around to properly make the transition to filmmaking.
I need to create at least 70% of the time or forever I'll be an influencer and not a filmmaker.
I still want to promote other filmmakers because this is an industry of collaboration and there are some amazing filmmakers out there, but I have focus more on what I create. With that said, I redesigned my site to be more focused on what I'm learning, what I'm creating and who I'm collaborating with.
You'll find the following sections to my site:
Projects: Projects I've completed on my own or in collaboration with other filmmakers.
Journal: Daily journal entries of what I'm doing to transition to filmmaking.
Podcast: What was previously "Filmmakers on the Cutting Edge", is now "Transitioning to Filmmaking".
Tutorials: Tutorials showing you what I've learned. I will also, from time to time, have guests on it.
Presentations: I love presenting in conferences, meetups and other events. Here you will find a list of where I'm presenting next.
About: Just like Mel Brook's book, this place is "All About Me"
Contact: Get a hold me.
I hope you like my redesign and feel free to send me any feedback about it.
Until the next entry!
