The Portland Filmmaking Collaborative is a fully functioning production company that was created to bypass film school while giving professionals the space to be creative. We have democratized the filmmaking process and in doing so have turned the world of filmmaking upside down! **FEATURE-LENGTH SCREENPLAYS IN REVIEW AS OF NOVEMBER, VOTING COMING SOON!** Using membership dues, we finance the production of one film at a time; written, directed, produced, acted, designed and edited only by us, the members of the group. Don't wait around for the stars to align; MAKE A MOVIE! Build up your reel/resume, hone your skills with like-minded filmmakers, or just become a patron of the arts!
The process is simple, for each production cycle we begin by accepting screenplays and then members vote for which one we want to make. After that, select the role within the production you want and submit yourself for consideration! Join every production or just the ones that resonate with you. Learn from those with more experience and help those with less. We always select from within the group first and only look outside the group when absolutely necessary. Producing mentorships are considered on a case-by-case basis.
Remember, all dues are used to cover the cost of this meetup and the cost of productions. We will post a summary of accounting for each film so you can see exactly what your money is being spent on. If you have any questions please feel free to contact an admin.
