Video Content Creators Unite To Earn Revenue with Pat McGowan Episode 50

Black Box Global is about giving creators the freedom to create and earn revenue from their videos and projects. Episode 50 of the SBP Podcast Mobile Filmmaking talks to the founder of BlackBox, Pat McGowan.

Listen to our inspiring conversation with Pat McGowan in Episode 50 of the SBP Podcast in its entirety in your favorite podcast app.

Just because you have a camera does not mean you are a photographer or a filmmaker. You work on your skills to use the camera as your tool to create your work or product. Once you begin to create high quality videos with whatever camera you have, even a smartphone, you will find others like you earning a living from their craft. How they do that takes a lot of work. BlackBox simplifies the process for you and helps you to succeed.

BlackBox believes in creators and provides a supportive system which enables creators with high quality video footage the freedom to create. How does BlackBox do that? With BlackBox, you can create a free account to upload and earn revenue from your videos. But that is just the beginning.

In about a year since Pat developed the platform, it has grown into a community of skilled and talented creators ready to collaborate on projects an earn revenue. BlackBox is a global platform where you can create and connect with people all over the world. BlackBox has grown into a community of over 35,000 members in the last 8 months and continues to grow.

Listen to Pat McGowan share the benefits of the platform for its members. Pat is a creator with many years of professional experience. He also likes to hang out with bears.

With the right mindset and tools, the quality of video and film from smartphones can be extraordinary. There is no reason why someone with exceptional video created with any camera, including your smartphone, cannot earn and be a part of projects you can take pride in. According to Pat, the platform is creating a way to help content creators earn through collaborative revenue sharing. “BlackBox is a creator empowerment community.”

“It allows everyone to share the dream and to benefit from the financial reward of that dream by accessing global markets.”

BlackBox is a second year sponsor of the International Mobile Film Festival taking place April 27 & 28 in San Diego. Pat McGowan lives in Ottawa, Canada, and is planning to attend #MFF2019SanDiego. If he can make it out to San Diego for the festival, it will be a great opportunity for all creators in the film and video industry to meet him in person during the festival.
