Emeryville, California (EastBayDaily) — FilmClick has many quality features, separating it from other video-hosting websites. FilmClick seeks true films as opposed to the viral videos found on many popular websites. The video quality on FilmClick is much higher than that offered on many other video websites, including full and widescreen capabilities, giving viewers a more enjoyable experience while viewing films over the Internet. Also, there are no restrictions on the file size or the length of films users can upload. FilmClick wants all filmmakers to take part in this online community and have their works seen by a global audience. FilmClick offers a free, mail-in service for conversion to digital format for films currently on tapes, reels and other media.
In addition to hosting films, FilmClick serves as a social networking arena for everyone interested and involved in film. FilmClick believes that everyone contributing to a film, not just actors and filmmakers, should be recognized. FilmClick welcomes and encourages behind-the-scenes crewmembers to join the FilmClick community. Those not working in the film industry but who enjoy watching films are also welcomed to join and view films, all while being able to connect and interact with those who worked on the creation. Users can create FilmClick profiles, view films, upload films, add friends, post comments, review films, create groups, join groups, and much more. It is not required to register with FilmClick to view films, however registration is recommended to explore the full services offered by FilmClick.
Upcoming features to the beta version of FilmClick are the FilmClick Production Planner and the FilmClick Profile Directory. The FilmClick Production Planner is an online, centralized application intended to simplify the film production process. This feature includes a calendar tool to display production schedules, coordinate film shoots, make important announcements, and is accessible to everyone involved in the shoot as administered by the production moderator. Coming soon the FilmClick Profile Directory will allow users to browse all user profiles not set to “private”. This browsing feature will allow FilmClick users to get noticed and increase their ability to collaborate on future film productions. FilmClick strives to deliver a platform for everyone interested in film to share their works and credits to an online audience.
FilmClick also announced it will be sponsoring and hosting an online film festival, with entries being accepted through June 30, 2008. The categories for entry are: Comedy, Documentary, and General Films (includes all other genres). Each film can be entered into just one category; however, there is no limit to the number of films submitted by one user. Over $5,000 will be awarded in total, with registered FilmClick users determining the winners. Official rules can be found at http://www.FilmClick.com.
