Just another example of altruism and community in San Francisco, Scary Cow Productions is about as creative and fun as you can get.
Scary Cow offers the opportunity to network with other film makers and make films with crew and equipment that you could never afford to hire.
Scary Cow is probably one of the best models for successful indie filmmaking you will find.
Where else do you get a chance to join a collaborative effort to produce your own project or help realize someone’s else’s dream come true in a welcoming learning environment AND then get to see it on the big screen. It is awesome!
I can honestly say its a very positive and nurturing environment for filmmakers. Not simply because we are a co-op, but because we know what it takes to make a film and we support each other. I am honored to be a part of the herd!
This is something special. No one is doing anything like this. It provides an environment for the novice and experienced alike to make movies and to help each other out.
Did anyone mention that this whole thing is just hella fun?
As a writer, I thought I’d just hand over a script and let somebody else make it. WRONG! I’ve made six shorts (five of which have won money) and have gone from writing to producing to directing. Who knew!
I’ve been a member for five years and have been more productive in that time than any other period of my life!
The real joy is that we’ve been able to share our simple but much-loved story with audiences across the USA. This would not have been possible without Scary Cow.
