Create Your Own "Indie" Short

We at Pembroke Community Media will help you make an “Indie.” CLICK HERE or phone us at 781-910-8899.  There are no hidden fees.

The idea that an average person can engage in the act of movie making and journalism is nothing new, and in fact has a long history in the United States.  With today’s  technology, this movement has found new life.  More and more people are capturing news and creating custom videos distributed via mass media anywhere and everywhere.

Go now to Pembroke Community Media to see what Pembroke residents just like you have made.  Our current active volunteers come from all walks of life, and are aged from two to 91 years.  It's true.

In Wikipedia an independent film is described as “a professional film production resulting in a feature film  produced mostly or completely outside of the major film studio system. An independent film production can rival a mainstream film production if it has the necessary funding and distribution”.
Pembroke Community Media makes independent creation tools available to our fellow Pembroke resident(s), so that independent producer can be you!

Here are some more facts to consider.  The increasing popularity and feasibility of low-budget productions over the last 15 years has spurred an increase in the number of aspiring artists writing speculation or “spec” scripts then trying their hand at movie making.

Today,  the large volume of inexpensive, high end digital equipment available at the consumer level, allows independent movie makers freedom from major studios which previously cornered the market on required equipment and supplies.  Production tools can be found in most towns' public access media locations.

Thanks to decreasing technology costs, thousands of small production companies can obtain the resources they need to produce entertaining shows at a fraction of the cost of the big Hollywood studios.  Post production also has been simplified by software that can be used on home computers.

The indie scene's development in the 1990s and 2000s was stimulated by both development of affordable digital cameras rivaling 35 mm film quality, and easy-to-use computer editing software, the same that's available at Pembroke Community Media.

Editing software available at Pembroke Community Media is Adobe Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro. These new technologies help create videos comparable to those with high budgets.

So,  try your hand at creating an Indie. Give us a call and we'll help.  781-910-8899
