If you're visiting ProductionNext on a phone, you'll notice that it's not very well set up for it. That's true. As we said, we're still in beta...

Right now, ProductionNext is only intended for use on desktop browsers and iPad-sized tablets. We'll be dealing with the phone situation in the future; meahwhile, we hope to see you over on the desktop side!

Producer Foundry

A Business School for Independent Film and a Community for Entrepreneurial Filmmakers.
San Francisco, California

We are a group of film and media producers with the entrepreneurial spirit. We are a hub for filmmakers who think like entrepreneurs (or who want to think like entrepreneurs), creating projects that actually make money. We are a place to gather and talk about the challenges of living and working in independent film, and to meet people who can help you overcome those challenges. We are a nexus for filmmakers who realize you can't make a movie by yourself, and that there's so much more to filmmaking than just making the film.
