SYDNEY, June 14, 2017 /CNW/ -- The world's first of its kind smart phone networking app for the international filmmaking and creative communities has recently made its debut, after approval by Apple and Google for worldwide release on their respective app stores.
The brainchild of Australian indie filmmaker Kosta Nikas and app creator Peter Lord, the aptly named Green Room hopes to be the game changer in the filmmaking and creative space.
"Our mission is to ensure that in this networking space our Canadian filmmaking colleagues and cast, crew and creatives around the world are equipped with all the necessary tools and features that will help them create and crew projects, build their network, find jobs and advance their careers, no matter where they live or travel to!" say founders Peter Lord and Kosta Nikas.
The Green Room has already attracted industry support who say such digital disruption is a win-win situation for all stakeholders.
"It's a great networking tool for our indie filmmakers. The more resources and support we provide them, the more we stimulate growth and employment in our sector," says Adam Scott, Spectrum Films (Alien, Lion, Hacksaw Ridge) Fox Studios Australia.
"A smart and useful app for our indie filmmaking community; great tool for production managers," says Vicki Betihavas, Live Producer (Woody Harrelson's Lost in London).
As with any new social networking application, The Green Room's success depends on its relevance and ability to serve the needs and aspirations of its members and no doubt investor groups in this space will be carefully monitoring its progress.
According to a 2015 report by Canadian Media Producers Association more than 148,000 Canadians work in the sector.
"It is early days but we are constantly developing new important features and are also encouraged by the fact that within days of release we had members in over 25 countries including Canada," say Lord and Nikas.
