Film + Music is a website venture by Filmsupply and Musicbed that I find to be a great source of inspiration. They have launched a quaterly magazine that will be 100 pages and take the best articles from the site mixed with exclusive print only new material for the creative masses.
Film + Music site is a great source of information and inspiration for creative people of all stripes. It brings together a collection of interviews, how to guides, and images put together to spark the best out of aspiring filmmakers, artist, and musicians. It is easy to see the site is put together by people who understand what it really means to go for your dreams. That is exactly why it works so well.
When asked what the inspiration for the magazine was by nofilmschool.com CEO Daniel McCarthy had this to say:
Everyone who works at The Music Bed is a creative in some way -- photographer, filmmaker, musician. [Film + Music Magazine] is something we all wish we did for ourselves. That's kind of what it was born out of -- to be a source of inspiration for creatives.
When we originally started, we had this thing that we called The Music Bed Community, and really it was just our blog, but it was just us talking to all of our friends in the industry, artists in the industry, filmmakers that we respected. For me, it was just, "Here's what I struggle with most: dealing with failure, dealing with the vulnerability that comes with being an artist, getting your art out, how do I get my mind right to take the next step in my career?" It was always wrapped around why we do what we do.
Think about the kinds of questions you would ask the 75-year-old director who's won a ton of awards and made a ton of movies you respect, and you just get 30 minutes to hang out with them and have coffee.
