Let me introduce myself

My name is Jiří Fusek and I am an introverted self-taught filmmaker (specifically producer/director/editor) with a passion for sharing knowledge, technology and design.

I knew maybe 4 people in the whole city when I came to Prague to study Production at FAMU (5th oldest film school in the world). Kinda sucks, when your job is to make sure other students can produce their movies and you have no connections and no real knowledge of the city.

Fortunately, I had a few good friends who helped me in those first years here in Prague (thank you guys!), but still, it wasn’t easy, because for people like me – introverts who like to keep to themselves, enjoy quiet evening with a book or TV series in their home, it’s quite difficult to ask for a help.

Today, I work at FAMU, I got my own production company and I want to help aspiring filmmakers and students on their journey. And thanks to the internet and all that, I really can. This is my WHY, now let’s get to HOW.

The community-driven platform

Imagine a digital place where you can find everything for your new filmmaking project. Actors, locations, contracts, crew, even some special deals with rentals. A place where you can post your work and ask for feedback from fellow colleagues. A place where you could find latest news, get inspired or learn something new. Doesn’t that sound great?

That is what I am working on. It’s already in the process, divided into several steps. What does the platform offer?

A database with locations open to filming. Listed with all the relevant information you need to have (production needs, electricity, water, photos) and contracts templates.

Casting agencies are a great help (if you can afford them), casting directors will always have a job, but what if you could find your actors online on one website, and not look through all the agencies and/or trying to get a number of an agent?

Got a new project and looking for a crew? Get it out there, share it with others and find new people to work with. Or are you looking for a specific member of the crew? Producer? Screenwriter? Freelance colorist maybe? Now you can pick whoever you want and you don’t have to rely on just your connections.

There is a lot that goes on in production and getting real contracts and usable templates for your shoot can save you a couple hundred bucks and a lot of time.

There are so many companies nowadays it’s hard to find the one that fits you. With our help, you will find the one that will help you get whatever task you need to be done.

One-stop shop for aspiring filmmakers

What do you say? Is this something you could benefit from? Could this help you on your journey, with your projects? If so, show the support, get on the waiting list and you’ll be amongst the first to be invited to the platform before we open it for the public!

I am a filmmaker and I work at FAMU – one of the oldest film schools in the world. Naturally, I will be sharing all the knowledge I have about filmmaking – from development through production & post-production all the way to marketing. Alongside with some templates you can use however you want.

You have to constantly receive information to learn and grow and get inspired, and in my free time I listen to some podcasts, I read quite a bit of different books, and watch even more movies and TV series. So why not share what I find interesting, inspire you a bit.

If you want to make a mark in the film industry, it’s not just about talent and hard work. It is a lot about you. One has to be a self-aware, confident, strong individual to not just survive, but thrive in such harsh, stressful and challenging environment. I’m here to help you become that person.

This one will be a step outside of my comfort zone. I am going to bring you interviews with some amazing people who have a lot to say and I have a lot to learn from them. From emerging producers & directors, successful actors to inspiring entrepreneurs.
