New Filmmakers' E-Book

We are launching a new production resource eBook for emerging filmmakers and videographers.<strong> "Making Your First Documentary" </strong>- Out of your pocket series.

<b>Book Review </b>

<i>"Most emerging producers and filmmakers
do not have time to read pages and pages of material but this fast-read
quickly informs the novice documentarian how to begin and provides the
requisite tools. Campbell allows readers to initiate the filmmaking
process with an idea, a camera and a tripod." ~ Professor P.J. Coxx, NYC - TV & Film courses. </i>

Festival Invite 'Humanity Explored'

Culture Unplugged Studios is organizing ‘Humanity Explored’, the next film festival where we gather and explore Our voice - as citizens of different locales of this earth, sharing the same cosmic resources that sustain life in us, dreaming the same future, experiencing same fundamental emotions, living similar life stories, yet intensely feeling separation among us.

Lets celebrate our collective humane evolution by contemplating the contemporary cultures & societies, through cinema.
