I wanted to share the my favourite filmaka moment of last year and one which shows how an online community like this can help film making in the real world.
Last year I received some great feedback from Aliakbar Campwala for our film Funk It so we added each other as friends on filmaka. Later in the year when I needed a lot of actors for an episode of the Christie series I contacted everyone I could think of. Aliakbar came over to the studio and appeared in one of the episodes turning in a very funny performance. So a virtual meeting in an online community spilled over into real life to help the actual film making process. That is the beauty of filmaka. I'm sure loads of people have similar stories.
