We Make

We Make We Make is a creative collective that connects talent with opportunity. Let's make something! We Make is an elite collective dedicated to fostering the careers of top young creatives from around the world.

Powered by Ideas United (IU), an award-winning creative studio, we provide our hand-selected members with exclusive projects for major brands, and offer networking opportunities with a collaborative community of likeminded professionals. We Make was founded in 2008 as the Distinguished Filmmakers Network (DFN). Grown out of Ideas United’s long-running tradition of supporting young creative talent, DFN was founded with a desire to keep in touch with the standout aspiring filmmakers across the U.S. that we have met through our groundbreaking college film festival, Campus MovieFest (CMF), since 2001. Utilizing this network of fresh, raw talent, Ideas United was able to begin partnering with major brands to tell their stories. Over the years, the network has expanded into other countries, with members completing projects in such diverse areas as Japan, Poland, Chile, Russia, Germany, China, Jordan, and the Philippines, and working with world-class brands including Google, Starbucks, Panasonic, Adobe, AT&T, Revlon, and Lenovo. We Make continues to develop its successful network by embracing new kinds of creative work, and strengthening the relationship between our production company and our members.

Mission: To forward both the careers of our members and the creative goals of Ideas United by connecting the best new talent with the most unique and rewarding jobs. Together, we create one-of-a-kind content and experiences. Together, We Make.

PlayStation Emerging Filmmakers Program - Video Recap

The PlayStation Emerging Filmmakers Program began last summer with an invitation for writers and filmmakers in We Make to submit their best concepts for an original television program. Out of hundreds of submissions, 10 concepts were chosen, and their creators got the opportunity to pitch their ideas directly to PlayStation executives and film industry professionals. From there, five concepts were greenlit for pilot production.

The pilots were filmed in Atlanta, with back-to-back productions taking place over just five weeks. Ideas United served as executive producers on the project, providing up-and-coming creative professionals the opportunity to work on large-scale productions.

The five shows range in genre from comedy to family drama to science fiction, and all are available to watch right here: https://www.playstation.com/en-us/network/playstation-video/emerging-filmmakers/

Excited to announce my epic short Sci-Fi film/web series pilot "Reclamation" is an Official Selection and nominee for BEST VFX at the Atlanta Comic Con Film Festival July 13-15th. I'm thinking of attending in person so if any of you are planning to go, let's connect and meet up. Also, I'm looking to submit a panel if anyone is interested - something like "Indie Sci-Fi Filmmaking" or "Creating a Sci-Fi Web Series." If interested, message me. More on my film at http://www.reclamation2151.com.
Got rejected by WeMake/IU on one day for PlayStation's new content concept; then the idea was picked up the same week by another producer for another network. The golden things people miss out on sometimes is baffling. Good luck to the finalists!!! Ideas United
