Making a film is a real achievement, but it requires effort and determination.

Securing funding, getting work, and navigating the numerous obstacles of film production can be difficult.

Many in the industry, including writers, directors, producers, actors, composers, and editors, rely on additional sources of income. Then, there's the time-consuming work of getting films, scripts, crew and casting calls seen.

Despite this, we love making films. The support and encouragement of our fellow filmmakers keeps us going.

Shooting People connects you with a UK community making bold and creative work. From all walks of life, right across the industry.
