THE SERVICE

So what does this 'Globally Distributed Social Impact Film Studio' actually do?

WORK FOR HIRE

We help global charitable organisations to capture content from all around the globe and do it ethically. We always hire local-to-the-story filmmakers and pay them no less than the Australian market rate, even if we're shooting in a lower socioeconomic region.

WORK FOR LOVE

Every time we produce a film for a charitable organisation we use part of the budget to shoot an unrelated story of an unrelated local hero. Some of these heroes are identified by a public vote (Story to Film competition) and some are directly chosen by our team or our sponsors.

WORKS FOR YOU

In order to bring more stories showcasing a wide variety of people from all around the globe, we partner with B-Corp organisations that see value in aligning their brand with genuine inspiring stories that are handpicked to match their own mission/vision.

Check out our story on the 52 Week Love project!

OUR STORY

January 2017 - My Doco Club

After producing 22 vlog episodes Gabor was like "honestly, who cares about my life" and had a better idea. What if I "vlog other people's lives" and right there, "My Doco Club" was born. Obviously filming a story on someone else every day would be impossible so he thought "a new documentary every week... yeah I can do that" and vowed to produce 52 films in 2017.

May 2017 - The birth of INSPIREFLIX

About 8 films in, Gabor had another idea 🙂 ... [the dude has too many of those] ... "what if I could get other filmmakers on board and create more content" awesome! This is when the "My Doco Club" name was obviously no longer a good choice, but guess what! The domain InspireFlix.com was available! WHAT?! Gabor could hardly believe his eyes and quickly made the decision to immediately rebrand his little baby, and think about nurturing it for a bigger impact...

July 2017 - The Festival Circuit

During the rest of 2017, we have submitted most of our finished films to various film festivals in Australia and overseas. A great decision as the films have scored two Wins, two Finalist and nine Semi Finalist titles from the 22 Official Selections we've received from around the globe. Our most successful film was Lambert, taking out Best Documentary at CUFF 2017, Best Brisbane Documentary @ Watchdog Film Fest 2018 and Best Emerging Director @ Melbourne Documentary Film Festival 2017.

January 2018 - Scarlett Joins INSPIREFLIX

The sole founder days were finally over when Scarlett Pragya joined forces with Gabor. Together they've re-engineered INSPIREFLIX and decided to give this shiny new v1.0 a good crack and apply to CEA's Collider accelerator.

March 2018 - We Collide under CEA's Supervision

"Your startup has been shortlisted for Collider Accelerator 2018 and we wish to offer you a place in our Selection Bootcamp" Yess! We prepared, we learned, we iterated and then finally on the 20th of March 2018 we battled it out among Queensland's most amazing creative startups. We did not make it into the cohort at that time but received lots of fresh wisdom and some mentor whiplash.

June 2018 - The Rebirth

Like with most startups the beginning was challenging, however, our vision to connect people through short films showcasing inspiring everyday people was just too important to ever give up on. Once v1.0 has proven to be unsuccessful, we have decided to go back to the drawing board. In the meanwhile re-focused on finding more individuals to feature in new INSPIREFLIX films.

July 2018 - The 'Story To Film' idea

After just a month back in the studio, we've launched the "Story To Film" competition. First only in Queensland AU and then in other Australian centers with plans to eventually open globally.

January 2019 - The First Partnership

By far the most exciting change till date was when we've decided to help global charitable organisations to not only, capture content from all around the globe, but also do it ethically. We have vowed to always hire local filmmakers and pay them no less than the Australian rate, even if we're shooting in a lower socioeconomic region. This is why SolarBuddy became our first charity partner. We also provide free training to all our filmmakers to help them grow on their creative journey.
