Finding Your People: Why Filmmakers Should be on Tumblr... Now | Future of Film

Finding Your People: Why Filmmakers Should be on Tumblr... Now | Future of Film | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Filmmakers, are you tapping your full potential when it comes to social media marketing? If you aren't on Tumblr, says the Center for Social Media, then the answer is a resounding "No." Their advice: Find, tag, respond, and reblog, all with a personal slant....

 

Consider this…

 

1. People on Tumblr LOVE to discuss movies and filmmakers.
They love to share information about movies and filmmakers. They post trailers and clips and encourage people to see films. They do all this, without prompting or the request of the filmmakers, but out of their genuine enthusiasm for film or topic. Need proof? Search the Tumblr tags for THE BULLY PROJECT, BYRON HURT, GASLAND or HOW TO DIE IN OREGON. As far as I can tell, none of these films/filmmakers have created a Tumblr presence on their own. Tumblr’s documentary enthusiasts, however, have built one for these and many other films/filmmakers. All this is to say—your film is out there, being discussed online, without you having to make a shred of effort—think of how much more discussion would be cultivated, and how much more meaningful that discussion would be, if you were participating in it!...

Roman Polanski will make his next film about “one of the most sensational political scandals and miscarriages of justice in history.” But no, it’s not autobiographical.

Flow Conference | University of Texas (kinda an Unconference - very interesting)

The 2012 Flow Conference will resemble traditional academic meetings in name only: there will be no panels, no papers, and no plenary sessions. Instead, the event will feature a series of roundtables, each organized around a discussion question on contemporary issues in television/media culture and scholarship.

 

Respondents are asked to submit a brief abstract addressing one of the roundtable questions listed below. We especially encourage responses that address issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, age, and ability, as well as international perspectives.

To submit a response send a 150-word abstract to flowconference2012@gmail.com by July 13, 2012. In the subject line of the email, please put the title of the roundtable to which you are responding. Be sure to also include your full name, e-mail address, and affiliation in the body of the e-mail.
