Introducing TAP IN: your peer-2-peer platform to share first-hand filmmaking experience & industry innovation in your community. Your opportunity to TAP IN to the film industry.

TAP IN is your free, community-driven panel series that gives Members of Raindance a platform to share experience, know how, and expertise in filmmaking. Tell us about your duct-tape DIY camera rigs, shorts made on shoestrings and mistakes magicked into miracles. Filmmakers sharing their real-world experiences from the trenches of DIY and lo-budget filmmaking is the REAL film school.
