The world's first of its kind smart phone networking app for the international filmmaking and creative communities has recently made its debut, after approval by Apple and Google for worldwide release on their respective app stores.
SYDNEY, June 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The brainchild of Australian indie filmmaker Kosta Nikas and app creator Peter Lord, the aptly named Green Room aims to be a game changer in the filmmaking and creative space but also for anybody involved in the production of audio-visual content across all industries.
''Our iPhone version went online a few weeks ago and the android version just became available. Although it is early days, we are very encouraged by the fact that we already have members in over 25 countries including the USA! So we are constantly improving it and developing new features.
''Our mission is to ensure that in this networking space our American and international filmmaking colleagues, cast, crew and creatives around the world are equipped with all the necessary tools and features that will help them create and crew projects in a timely and efficient manner, build their network, find jobs and advance their careers, no matter where they live or travel to!" say founders Peter Lord and Kosta Nikas.
The Green Room, has already attracted industry support who say such digital disruption is a win-win situation for all stakeholders.
"It's a great networking tool for our young indie filmmakers. The more resources and support we provide them, the more we stimulate growth and employment in our sector,'' says Adam Scott, Spectrum Films (Alien, Lion, Hacksaw Ridge) Fox Studios Australia.
"A smart and useful app for our indie filmmaking community; great tool for production managers" adds Vicki Betihavas, Live Producer of Woody Harrelson's Lost in London.
The Green Room allows users to add as much information as they feel necessary to connect them with the right people and projects. They can add their: Personal Details, Availability, Education, Work Experience, Bio, Show reel, Skills, Equipment, Location, Projects, Awards, IMDb link and more.
The Green Room also allows users to create a profile regardless of the type of project, format and genre and its production status. Project creators can search for the right crew matching their project criteria simply by posting a job/crew role and adding all the preferences they wish.
As with any new social networking application, The Green Room's success depends on its relevance and ability to serve the needs and aspirations of its members and no doubt investor groups in this space will be carefully monitoring its progress.
According to the MPAA the USA film and TV industry employed 1.9 million people and contributed 121 billion dollars in wages in 2016 whilst film school graduates are estimated at 50,000 each year.
