About
WHAT IS WE MAKE?

We Make is a creative collective that connects talent with opportunities. We give you access to exclusive jobs for major brands (like Google, Starbucks, and Adobe...MAJOR), provide you with resources to support your own work (like access to free gear), and even connect you with other top creatives in your area through our exclusive network (new friends!). We work with our members to produce unforgettable content for our clients and fuel your creativity at the same time. In short, We Make it happen.

WHO IS PART OF WE MAKE?

We are directors, producers, actors, writers, designers, composers, and everything in between. Whether you’re new to the business and looking to build your resume, or a veteran filmmaker seeking bigger opportunities and more creative control, We Make has something for you. We’re storytellers, innovators, weirdos, and cool kids – and we want you to hang out with us.

HOW DO I JOIN WE MAKE?

We are a small and selective community, so while anyone and everyone is welcome to apply, not all applicants will be admitted. This doesn’t mean you have to be Spielberg or Coppola to get in – we believe in young talent, and want to find fresh and diverse voices to work with and support. The We Make team reviews every application for experience and quality of work, and we primarily search for creators who we believe would suit the wide variety of projects we have to offer. We look for thoughtfulness in your application, so make sure you answer questions fully and back up your listed skills with work examples that show what you can do. To apply to We Make, click the JOIN button!

WHAT WILL MEMBERSHIP GET ME?

Jobs. Money. Industry connections. Work you can brag about. We Make members have access to exclusive opportunities to work on major projects with incredible brands, borrow state-of-the-art gear from our partners for FREE, attend networking events with other creative professionals, put together talented crews, and discuss ideas with fellow creators. When you’re accepted, you’re in for life – as long as you update your personal information once a year. Oh, and by the way, MEMBERSHIP IS FREE. Did we mention that yet? We Make is totally, completely, 100% free.

HOW DOES IT ALL WORK?

We Make connects members with three main types of work:

HexagonCREATIVE

I’ve got this great idea for a commercial, and oh, I wouldn’t mind being paid to develop it.

HexagonPRODUCTION

I’m a director/producer who can make that amazing commercial with my team – just say the word!

HexagonCREW

I’m a gaffer/editor/makeup artist looking for my next gig.


All of our production and crew jobs are paid, and all creative jobs have the opportunity to earn compensation. You can submit to as many different kinds of opportunities as you like! We add new jobs weekly, so make sure you check your inbox and our Opportunities section often. We get to know you through your work, and even occasionally reach out to select members with specific requests. We know the talent that our network holds, and we want to give you every opportunity to advance your career – just don’t forget about us when you’re a fancy big shot, okay?

HOW IS WE MAKE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER JOB SITES?

In addition to finding out about unique creative and production opportunities, you also get to be part of an incredible community of talented professionals (and all around awesome people). This means that you can reach out with questions about the industry, bounce ideas off each other, connect with members around the world, round up dependable crew for your own projects, and when your work takes you away from home, you might even be able to find a friendly couch to crash on.

SO HOW DOES WE MAKE DO ALL OF THIS?

We Make is powered by the award-winning creative studio Ideas United. IU works with some of the biggest brands in the world, and brings opportunities to We Make members for creative development, production gigs, and crew positions. Together with Campus MovieFest and TERMINUS, our creative family has a little something for everyone. Check us out!
