The Workbook Project: Add to a Library of Information about DIY Filmmaking

Lance Weiler (`Head Trauma,' `The Last Broadcast') has just kicked off a great project: a collaborative Web site where DIY filmmakers can share information and war stories. Eventually, he hopes to make "the Workbook" available as a printed publication.

The project is still quite nascent, but Lance is looking for filmmakers to contribute. As sample content, Lance has started to write about his recent 17-city theatrical release of `Head Trauma,' done on a shoestring this fall.


  • perhaps im not understanding this correctly, but isn't this once again an example of a content aggregator making money off content creators?

    i know lance is an indie filmmaker - but if his "social opensource project," makes him money but none of the contributors, how does that make it any different than youtube monetizing their content through verizon phones? neither pays back the original content producers.
