[column-left] WHAT IS THE CREATIVE COLLECTIVE
The Creative Collective is an online resource for the film and TV industry, designed for freelancers, independent companies and groups who are creating new, original and exciting work. If you are looking for a director of photography, graphics company or designer, a make-up artist or a camera house you will find some of the best in the business. You can simply browse the many member options, view their work, read about them, visit their personal websites and hopefully create original, eye-catching work with them on your next project.
HOW THE CREATIVE COLLECTIVE GOT MADE
The Creative Collective was setup by two members of the advertising industry, one a commercials director and the other an agency creative. They saw it as a great opportunity to develop a platform for freelancers and a resource for others i.e. producers and production companies to tap into. It began and was originally populated with crew known to both and people who they had worked with over the past 10 years. It then grew and grew from word of mouth. The website has been running just over 2yrs. Since its relaunch 2 months ago and with a new look the website has generate nearly 3,000 views in the 60 day period and has an ever growing membership of creative professionals.[/column-left]
