Mr. Bill George Presents

A New Site For Film Aficionados

In Film on December 9, 2009 at 1:53 AM

Fun factoids about myself: I love movies and am currently pursuing a career in video production. I am immensely interested in the production of films and love reading interviews with writers/directors etcetera. So needless to say, when I found the website “makingof.com” via my stumbleupon button on Firefox I found it necessary to do a quick write-up on it as a heads up.

Makingof.com is a well crafted site that is regularly updated with videos featuring interviews with notable directors/writers/production-crew and behind-the-scenes bits on current and up-coming movies. All of the videos are very high quality and the site is updated surprisingly fast. As I perused the site I was a bit perplexed as to why the community section was so dead. The forum posts were few and far between. Which leads me to believe this site hasn’t exactly caught on yet and is also causing me to try to spread the word. I was even further perplexed when I found out that Natalie Portman co-founded the site and that I hadn’t heard of it through one of my film site avenues beforehand.

Sure you can find interviews and pieces on many films and directors out there on youtube and such but “makingof.com” consolidates the material in an easy to navigate fashion so you have a bit more direction if you are looking to gain insight into the world of film. So if you are an aspiring film-maker or just a movie-buff I think you might like this site and I recommend giving it a check-out.

[Editors Note: Thanks Matt. Good find. Also on my (Bill George’s) radar as far as new movie sites go: http://movieclips.com/. It’s a neat way to view, embed, and share scenes and clips from popular films. Much easier and higher quality than YouTube.]
