  • Beyond having a good time making weird film centric videos, how does this challenge help me? Its great if you a a social blogger, an actor or filmmaker who is looking to find more of your kind of people, its a mini calling card for filmmakers who have a certain style or authorship to their works. And of course pumping up the heck out of your authentic Instagram following.
  • How challenging are the #Instagate Weekly Film Challenges? Well, lets put it this way. There are some challenges we expect no one to do. So there might be a week that no one can do the challenge. But thats the point, to see who has the intestinal fortitude to overcome. Its about the love of movies and the people who make movies happen.
