If you are a donor, read below for more details about how to donate more than 20$ at a time. Using for-profit company status, I collect your donation. Your donation is not disbursed to 3rd party organizations until after US taxation has completely cleared. You select the category of need. 

A link here for you, to my Wordpress blog. The blog is indicative of my personal politics and has functioned as a guide to world leading politicians and others. Find more links below.:  

Prologue (platform)

Film school was for us, an incubator for political awareness, with disciplinary skill and creative relationship formation. There, film craft was passed on as analogue systems grow scarce. Understanding for the formulas behind US movie making (emphasizing story), the anchored history, and the emerging market platforms began to take firm root. It was the science behind mainstream and experimental movie making with multi diciplinary work and emphases, in the production disciplines and use of technologies.

Rebel, the late Jim Morrison, pioneer F.F. Coppola, and a great number of others, leave enduring marks on this school's public image and reputation... but not only that. The school has given way to global collaborations and the newest generations continue to graduate. I am one of those members. And I invite you to explore my website fully! It is a commercial product site but not only.


Be my guest, and send any questions to me!

While this company accepts donations and routes % 's to other organizations, I disclose one directly:

If you are looking for work, I am not hiring, however it is my hope that if you look for work as a heifer helper, the organization might place you within their staff - look them up and inquire. They have informed me on how they can take you on.

I encourage you not to volunteer your time and treasure. I refer you to them to find pay. Train with them; and join them if you have "peace corps style" initiative in you. For placement mostly on the Asian and African continents,

they can be reached by phone for further information at: 1 (800) 422-0474 .

Another choice is to donate to this company to keep it operating. If you donate, use the "donate" button and write-in onto transfer of money on memo line "consumer of website" (to distinguish it from a donation to 3rd party recipient).

If you've been directed to or invited to my site in search of movie development, don't leave without signing the guest book/ordering from the    Screenplay Mill          AGENTS, please see!


With so many content choices today, be sure to see that this site is not a "channel" or a "station". No! It is a commercial intersection for commerce, ideas, and art!

If you are a 3rd party publisher... a showcaser like "microsoft bing/movies", or "YouTube", I invite you to purchase my other domain which I reserved and registered over a decade ago: ! Any broadcaster is welcome to inquire of this very strong name brand: ! is not for sale, but "" is! It is a hugely recognizable brand name, on a global scale; and, "short films" is an ever more commonly accepted name defining global media in the short format of which there is great multitude! And many artists who make them!


Note: If you are not a serious buyer, do not apply.

So, in the spirit of both independent film & large studio film making (on a larger or smaller scale), enjoy the site products, religious testimony, director's notes, film recommendations, and MORE THAT YOU WILL FIND.-

Do you want Free Movie Recommendations? -you'll find a list of highly recommended movies. I invite you to visit my buddies at Once you create a user profile for yourself there, and once you've logged in, you can then become my fan! Why? To see some of my movie reviews and write reviews of your very own. Currently over 800 visitors have read my review(s) at fandango. Unfortunately there's no compensation scheme. Type my name "chrisratesmovie" in the user search box, to find my reviews that fandango has posted at their site. Now that I offer reviews on my own site sometimes, I check in with fandango very rarely, but have fun with it yourself! They're also a good source for looking up showtimes, buying show tickets, researching storylines, etc.

*some of my very-most favorites remain unmentioned on this site or theirs.

Some friendly American TV stations which often feature film classics or student works of art, that I can recommend, are:


Contact your local cable or satellite company to inquire these channels.
