This edition of “TCIBR” is brought to you by IndieFlix – Today our guest is attorney Dan Staorius. Dan specializes in entertainment law and his clients include a cross section of people working in film, television, music, publishing and interactive media. In our discussion we focus on lessons that can be learned from the music industry. In many ways music leads film and the current trend in artists going direct with audiences is common practice with musicians. In fact this past week Radiohead announced an interesting model for the release of their newest album Rainbows.

  • This might also be interesting to filmmakers who wish to use social media as a promotion for a new site that is launching called One Fat Cigar. It uses a script to screen approach and allows film fans to follow a project from day 1, as well as cast and crew the project through the site, allowing members to become actively involved and engaged. Quite an interesting extension to the presentation.

    This is good stuff. I jumped into this after the first time I heard Arin Crumley talk about it, and then Lance, which lead me here and to this great website resource. I then launched my own project using these ideas. One thing Arin mentioned is that political campaigns are really ripe for social media networking and can catch on like wild fire. We've seen Obama make use of this.

    But I wanted to add that the networks are another great tool. I heard one of your filmmaker interviews where they used a Ning site as their official movie website. The Huffington Post did this during the 2008 election to recruit grass roots bloggers, too. I always liked Ning and so I tried the same idea with my political documentary Stop War, and had some limited success.

    One thing about Ning is that it can be used as a focal point or home website for your project. You can combine all the other social outlets there. You can add RSS feeds using your delicious bookmarks, and you can post slide photo shows and videos as well as blogs. It also offers text blocks so you can put up links to your other networks like Facebook and Twitter. But what's really cool is that anyone can join your project and post their own media and blogs right there.

    I'm not affiliated with Ning. I just think they have a cool thing going. Check out my Stop War project.
