Hello everyone! My name is Melanie Chiro and I run a group on Meetup.com called Let's Make Media in Toronto. Started on May 10, 2017 we have already amassed over 100 members. This is not just any group however. It is my hope that it will serve as a precuror to a production company that hopes to address a specific problem faced by myself and many film hopefuls. And that is finding their first job when they have nothing but creative potential and not a very helpful resume. With our company we aim to reward not only the experienced but also the inexperienced. The people with drive and creativity who are looking for that first opportunity. We will allow creatives to come to the sets of our productions where they will be assesed on their talent, motivation and williness to work for the crew. If they succeed they can work for us and in doing so be able to build their resumes so that they can continue to work and potentially have great success in the film industry.

A bit about our what we want to do

Right now we are running our meetup group as a way to gauge interest but in a few months we plan to release the first few episodes of our historical web series and in the meantime keep having meetings to promote who we are and what we want to do. We hope that this series can generate more interest in history but by extension generate interest in the company that created it. We hope that that the next few years bring in a variety of potential employees from people with nothing but creative drive to industry professionals to act as guides. The ideal is for the company to function as both a production company and a film school where students first projects double up as jobs that can lead to new and fascinating places.
