This will be controversial.
Yup. This will be controversial to the inane filmmakers who don’t understand the difference between stealing ethically, and stealing without attribution.
BUT that’s good news for you.
While others see the world in their black and white ideologies, there are others that know that the greys of nuance are needed to win in this industry — or in the words of Bruce Lee, “Be flexible. Like water.”
You also know that “winning” doesn’t mean someone else has to “lose.”
My goal — scratch that — my MISSION is to create an industry that is not zero sum. One that grows when secrets are exposed rather than obfuscated.
So how do you win in filmmaking? How do you create more quality content than ANYONE else?
You have to learn to steal. And to steal ethically.
Like Steve Jobs, use this technique to create your own brand and build your legion of loyal admirers.

You know how Eminem is the Rap God? Well up North there in Canada, Curt's referred to as Toronto's "Film God." Studying mathematics and physics, his switch to filmmaking has given him a unique eye where he sees how things are traditionally done in the industry and goes "Um.. WTF." With a focus on results, and not just "festivals", Curt has taken cues from the startup world as well as deep psychology to help other independent filmmakers get connected, get funded, and make money with their films.
