No Film School

No Film School is the leading worldwide community of filmmakers, video producers, and independent creatives. No Film School is where filmmakers learn from each other — “no film school” required.

This is a great community where filmmakers can share their lastest work on their profile page and ask questions of other filmmakers on the site. Watch the video below to get a sense of what the group offers.

Business Software for Artists from Artful.ly

Artful.ly is an intuitive software program that allows artists or arts organizations to sell tickets, take donations, and track donors and patrons on their own site. It works with Mail Chimp and your own website to allow artists and arts organizations to connect with and manage their relationships with their patrons and fans in a more organized way. The best news is, it's made possible through Fractured Atlas and is FREE!

ACI TIP: Seems to be an awesome tool for bands or small performing arts companies, but other artists should check it out to see if it might be useful for them too.
