We are a group of creative, passionate and sincere people who love to watch films and make them! We have already finished a good number of projects and more are on the way! Filmmaking requires a lot of hard work and devotion! But you will not notice this when working with our group as we have so much FUN together!
Hi! My name is Luna. I am the Founder and Manager of the group. I do not have any formal filmmaking background myself. I grew up watching world-class cinemas and that is how I fell in love with movies! Our group consists of people from all background and having varieties of filmmaking experiences. Some of us are pursuing filmmaking as a profession and some as a serious hobby. Some are going to school for it. And some are learning the craft by getting involved with projects. However, one thing for sure: we surely do WORK WELL together!
I am proud of all the members of this group! They are the ones that have made this group so successful!
Please get involved and be active! Every project is Different. Every new project is more challenging in comparison to the finished ones! This way, we ensure that we produce quality films and grow as a group!
Please note that the group just went through a name change. The previous name of the group was The Novice Filmmakers Group. The name change was necessary to accommodate our growth and steer towards new direction.
