About me – Nathalie
In 2008, I quit my job and flew from Paris to Los Angeles to work on what I wanted to become, a full-time director-editor. In the process I started writing my scripts as well, because it was just easier that way, so I became a director-editor-writer. I didn’t know anything about the “Business“, I didn’t know anything about the rules, and I learned. I wrote, shot and edited a lot the first year. And I learned. I sent some of the movies to festivals, and I learned [oh yes. It was painful mostly]. I got selected sometimes and guess what? Yes, I learned.
At the end of 2010 I started mentorless.com to share with my community what I was learning and discovering on a daily basis. In the last two years, mentorles has pushed me to discover much more than what I would if I didn’t have the site. Thanks to it I also met with many incredible people. Those two elements only made the hundreds of hours spent on it worth it.
At the end of 2011 I left Los Angeles to become a nomad for an undetermined amount of time. I am based in France (if you want to write me a letter) but I go wherever my projects and work lead me to.
mentorless.com is a website for independent storytellers and filmmakers who want to stay tune with tips and tools on how to write, shoot, edit and produce a video, a short movie, a feature film, but also how to stay creative. It offers interviews, making-of, tutorials, tips and tools to be inspired and evolve as a story maker, a filmmaker and an independent creative. If you love films, transmedia, post-production, tv shows and anything related to storytelling and entertainment, this is it.
Mentorless is conceived as a sharing platform and doesn’t pretend to detain all the answers. It is an opportunity to start conversations with other movie-makers and movie-lovers.
Mentorless was awarded best website of the week in August 2012 by Script Mag.
