Welcome to the Filmmaking task force of WikiProject Film! We are a task force which aspires to comprehensively cover and standardize articles involving the technologies and disciplines involved in all stages of professional filmmaking.

Scope[edit]

Our focus is on all aspects and departments involved in the making of a film from development along to release.

Specifically:

  • equipment and resources used in the process of filmmaking
  • jobs frequently involved in filmmaking
  • technical concepts and processes used with or developed for films
  • commonly practiced techniques directly applicable to film work
  • companies and suppliers directly concerned with the film industry

Topics explicitly outside of task force scope[edit]

Goals[edit]

Specifically, we are interested in:

  • standardizing the articles as much as possible through infoboxes, templates, and consistent terminology
  • providing verifiable citable references for all pertinent information
  • coordinating our work using guidelines, recommendations, and review
  • acting as the focal point of discussion regarding filmmaking articles
  • creating consensus on stylistic issues
  • engaging industry professionals - preferably from a wide range of fields and geographic regions
  • removing systematic bias - such as excessive or exclusive focus on a particular region's industry or a certain type of filmmaking (i.e. features, television, commercials, music videos, shorts, etc.)
  • welcoming anyone with a serious interest in the topics

Showcase[edit]

The following is a listing of articles (and other types of content) within the scope of the task force that have been noted for their outstanding quality. Members are encouraged to peruse these at their leisure, as they serve as excellent examples of different writing and organizational styles that one may wish to emulate.

Please note that the task force does not necessarily claim any authorship or credit for creating these. While many were written by members—sometimes with extensive input from the task force as a whole—others were created by uninvolved editors, or predate the existence of the project itself, and are listed here merely because they fall within our scope.
