Filmmaker Kosta Nikas and businessman Peter Lord have created a free networking and job creating app and website for screen industry practitioners.
The founders say The Green Room enables users to access information about projects and crew availabilities and to connect with peers who have shared experiences and interests in ways that were not possible before.
While the target market primarily is Australia, the app has been downloaded more than 3,300 times in around 50 countries including the Us, the UK, Colombia, Canada, India, Nigeria, Indonesia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Spain, France, Sweden and Germany since the iPhone version was launched six weeks ago, followed by the Android version.
The app is designed as a communications tool for virtually anyone involved in the production of audio-visual content, from features, shorts and docos to a fashion shoot.
The founders are developing the technology to encompass more sectors within the creative industries.
