Write Shoot Cut started as a blog that celebrated and showcased independent undiscovered talent. My commitments have meant that the blog has been neglected over the past year but I feel it is still relevant and something I would like to see expand. I do not have the time to create content for the site and so am looking for film enthusiasts and filmmakers to write for the site. THERE’S NO MONEY in it. That’s the truth. The site brings in no money, the donate button on the site has never been pressed but what the site has gotten me in the past is interviews with actors and filmmakers I admire, collaborations with some of those people and raised my profile. It has also gotten me access to press passes at Edinburgh and Glasgow Film Festivals and beyond.
There are two types of contributors I am looking for:
- I’m looking for people who can post regularly covering short films, feature films, filmmakers, interviews, opinion pieces, behind the scenes journals, tech posts, podcasts, videos, rants – anything really. These people will have their own voice, their own opinions and this could be the platform that allows them to reach an audience. WSC bloggers who are part of the team.
- Filmmakers/Actors/Creatives who want to do one off posts or irregular posts about any aspect of indie film. Guest bloggers basically.
I want to keep quality high so you really should love short and indie film, be passionate and informed about it or at least willing to get involved in the community here in Scotland and beyond.
I’m looking for content ASAP.
If the site ever makes money then we will discuss how this is distributed amongst those involved.
If you are interested please contact me here or via the site with an article/comment/short film/post that you think could go on the site.
Please share to anyone you think may be interested.
