Happy 1 Year, Community Forum!

(Stareable) #1

Share your favorite forum memories in the comments and on social- we’ll retweet any/all celebratory tweets and links! :heart:

Exactly one year ago, Stareable launched its Creator Community, a forum for digital filmmakers to ask for help, lend a hand, find new collaborators, get advice from industry experts, and so much more. All that was planned- we knew we wanted a question/answer area, an area to read craft articles, an area to post and find jobs. But what we couldn’t plan for was the community itself, and you have all exceeded both our expectations and our wildest dreams.

We are incredibly humbled by your openness, your kindness, and your genuine support of one another over the past year. We’ve watched casual advice turn into friendship turn into collaboration, we’ve watched total strangers consol one another during hard times, and we’ve watched aspiring filmmakers become experts through the help and guidance of others on the platform. And we could not be more grateful to bear witness to it all.

Thank you, for letting us be a part of this wonderful group of people, constantly growing and changing and making new and wonderful things together. Thank you, for sticking by us as we evolve our platform to better suit your needs and for communicating those needs to us.

Thank you, for building the future of television with us.

Happy one year, folks, and here’s to many more.

Honestly, it seems like it’s been longer (but in a good way)

To me it feels shorter haha. I couldn’t believe it was today until I logged into TimeHop!

This was so cute!! I love the AMAs (see ya in 30 minutes for the next one!) because I love all the different perspectives and advice- makes success feel not so far away. Thank you for all you do, Stareable!

My first post here I think was when I wanted to quit a bad/frustrating project, and I’m happy to say since all that feedback and help I haven’t wanted to quit another project since, because I have the confidence now to say no to things that aren’t right!

Favorite memory is discovering this platform at just the right time and knowing I’m not alone in my uphill battle! :heartpulse::heartpulse::heartpulse::heartpulse::heartpulse::heartpulse::heartpulse:

It is impossible to overstate the value of the knowledge and experience shared by everyone. Thank you times ten.

I def can’t pick a specific memory because you guys are absolute gems who have saved me on sooooo many occasions. I’d be lost without this site & all the guidance you guys have given me on it :heartpulse::heartpulse::heartpulse::heartpulse::heartpulse:
