What is Film Connx?
Film Connx is an Atlanta-based job marketplace and community for film designed to:
Gig Up – provide local crew with consistent viable work opportunities via a matching algorithm and search functionality.
Crew Up – provide studios and production houses with a diverse slate of local crew that results in significant reduction of production budgets.
Connect – a vibrant interactive social community specifically for film professionals.
Why Film Connx?
The local film industry is booming and contributes $9.5B to Georgia’s economy. However, although crew wages nationwide top $140B, in Georgia – the #1 feature film destination in the world – crew wages are only $4.6B. That is because local film crew aren’t getting their piece of the pie relative to the amount of production activity in our state.
Film Connx disrupts this dynamic – we introduce studios, production houses and vetted local crew and facilitate the hiring and payment process.
How Does It Work?
Film Connx is developing relationships with studios and production houses locally and in California and New York. We are also conducting pilots with Atlanta-based corporations to facilitate job placement for select roles within their media departments.
Studios and corporate partners can identify talent in a variety of ways, including:
- Searching vetted crew profiles
- Posting jobs to the platform
- Film Connx can push jobs directly to eligible vetted crew on organization’s behalf, increasing efficiency (targeting) and proficiency (cost savings)
- Film Connx can provide a diverse slate of vetted crew for consideration, if organizations desire
