With the pervasiveness of the Internet pulsing through our everyday lives; one has to wonder what the word ‘privacy’ entails. As filmmakers, what benefits or repercussions do we face with so much free access to ‘private’ information out on the web for the world to see? And how can we justify a ‘truth’ when there is no governing body to say so? While trying to find answers to these questions, I narrate my experiences as a filmmaker who makes use of participatory filmmaking methods through what might be called a case study. I articulate that the reality of the new entrepreneurial filmmaker is not only making just a film project, but rather building a community of like-minded people who support a film project by participating in its production and delivery.
