YouPix Community, Better your odds of Getting your Movie Made! posted this article about YouPix,  a community of film makers that share resources. Another way of connecting with others in the film making biz.

Sometimes it can feel like the chances of your screenplay being bought and made, or having a shot at getting paid to direct a film is 1 in a million. YouPix is a contest/community that may help up those odds — to 1 in a thousand to be more accurate. This new platform is twofold: It’s an online filmmaking community where members can upload their scripts and films, talk in forums, and follow each other’s activity (like Facebook.) It’s also a screenwriting/directing contest that awards winners up to $500,000 to make their film. More details after the jump.
YouPix was launched in late-May of this year. Founders and filmmakers Mathew Davis and Talieh Safadi set out  to offer opportunities for screenwriters and directors to both share their work with fellow members of the site, as well as compete for the chance to make their films.

Adobe Premiere 6 CC, get up to speed tutorial.

If you have not updated to the new CC version of Adobe editing tools I would. You can still have the older version in your apps but I don't think you will go back.  Some of the updates are really good and I am really enjoying some of the workflow improvements.  You do not have to worry about issues of being in the middle of a project on the older version and updating. The only thing I noticed was some of my hot keys did not transfer.

Check out this tutorial to get you up to speed on the new features.

4th of July Americana, IndieFlix's

A film we at Binary produced called "American Collectors" is highlighted on IndieFlix's July 4th Americana. A film about why do people collect things. IndieFlix's is a independent film distribution company with lots of great films.

Americans devote vast amounts of money, time, and closet space to their collections. Studies show that 30% of the population of the United States collects something. “American Collectors” is a documentary that explores why people collect and the impact that collecting has on their everyday lives. “American Collectors” takes an in depth look at the psychology of collecting. In this film we meet 15 very different people with wide and varied interests. They all share a common bond, the activity of collecting. Within these interviews, we get a very personal and intimate look at collectors and their relationships with these objects of desire.
