‘Filmwallas’ is the embodiment of a concept with the motto of ‘democratizing filmmaking’ by leveraging technology advancements including (not limited to) Advanced Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. The premise behind ‘Filmwallas’ is to bring together and converge the entire eco-system of film making with the underlying objective of empowering the ‘dreamer’ in each one of us with the right resources and access.
The explosion and availability of visual capture techniques like low-cost cameras (including smartphone cameras) coupled with the explosive Internet penetration in Asia has empowered the common man substantially. This has made it possible to democratize the visual rendition of dream concepts in the form of micro films, short films, web series, documentaries and even feature films. However, the execution of various aspects of filmmaking like sourcing the right talent, finance, promotion, etc., is still limited to the individual’s own personal circles, which most of the times may not bring out the best of results. The artist community too is not benefiting as much as it could due to the fragmented nature of the ecosystem. ‘Filmwallas’ brings together and converges the entire eco-system of film making with the underlying objective of empowering the ‘dreamer’ in each one of us with the right resources and access.
Filmwallas leverages advanced algorithms and analytics platforms which to an extent has ‘codified the wisdom of a movie maker’. These advanced algorithms help in the first round of shortlisting candidates from the thousands of profiles registered with Filmwallas from across Asia. The algorithm works based on both the hard and soft skill requirement matching as well as implicit personality traits of the candidates for casting calls and other faculties of film making.
‘Filmwallas’ is an early stage venture built by a few passionate like-minded dreamers. Filmwallas has also garnered the support of some of the most eminent film makers of our era. Their belief in this platform stems from its abaility to bring opportunities to talents which otherwise has remained constrained to individual’s ‘circles of contacts’.
