Pinterest is a social bookmarking site with a bulletin board interface. Users have Boards where they organize their ‘Pins’ – interesting content from around the web. Pinterest defines Pins as “handsome little bookmarks. Whenever you find something on the web that you want to keep, add it to Pinterest”. Boards are organized by topic and can be made either public or private.
Create your own boards or follow other users boards and share them via email. What I like about Pinterest is that it is visual and similar to using a digital lightbox. Find videos, articles and images that you like. When you click on them in Pinterest it takes you to where they ‘live’ online. I find this easier and more organic than searching blog posts on a website.
More and more filmmakers are using Pinterest to promote their websites/projects and to collect images/videos that inspire them.
