Lockdown Live with Pat McGowan, the creator of Blackbox

Lockdown live with Dewald Kirsten

Today I chat with Pat Mcgowan from Blackbox. Pat created Blackbox to be a creator community where people collaborate and earn money together, They focus on stock footage at this time and its an upload once and they then distribute it to the major platforms.  They have a massive portfolio with the stock agencies and they get first-hand info from the agencies as to what is needed etc.  Blackbox changed the way I sell stock footage and it has done so for many others. If you are a stock footage creator, come and have a look. Also, feel free to ask your questions, we will answer them.

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.

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.

12.16.18: An Advent Dialogue with Pat McGowan (3800 Marlton Pike)

Circle of Hope

Season: Advent - Welcoming the StrangerSpeaker: Ben White in conversation with Pat McGownLocation: 3800 Marlton PikeAbout: The church is much older and diverse than we often realize. There is a rich embodied tradition of tradition and ritual that has been buried in some sectors of the church by a more academic faith. Pat grew up suspicious of non-biblical tradition (especially Catholics) so the season of Advent is new for him. He discovered how useful it was, as an antidote to his chronic boredom and an outlet for his imagination. It is still a challenge but one he has accepted because he has learned that the BIG community of faith is better than his personal experience alone.

Pat McGowan - BlackBox Global One Year Later (240)

Artful Camera

Pat McGowan - CEO and Founder of BlackBox Global. In this special edition of the Artful Camera, I revisit a topic that was first presented here in episode #224 in May of 2017 - the idea of using an aggregator to submit stock video to other agencies. In that episode I spoke (rather skeptically I admit) to Founder and CEO of BlackBox Global - Pat McGowan. In September of this year (2018) BlackBox posted a record month in sales, and recently onboarded over 28,000 creators. BlackBox is now the largest contributor to the Big 4 Agencies: Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, Pond 5, and Story Blocks. With claims like that I felt it was time to talk with Pat again about BlackBox. In this episode you are going to hear that BlackBox is much much more than an aggregator of stock video. As creators, I think we get it, the gig economy can be a tough source of income (or lack thereof). Diversifying revenue sources is a protection to creators. BlackBox provides an inventive way for creators to realize more profits from doing the thing they love. BlackBox provides a strong community for creators, and a platform for close collaborations among other creators. That’s what this conversation today with Pat McGowan of BlackBox Global is all about. Pat’s production company routinely did million dollar jobs with a team of 40 people and high end video production gear. But all that dried up overnight. BlackBox is the result of that sudden downturn. Pat is determined that creators have other means to profit from doing the thing they love.

The Make Your Movie Podcast: A Filmmaking and Screenwriting Show

Pat McGowan is a longtime Film & Video Creator from Ottawa, Canada. As with many in the “biz”, his career started as a musician, moved into audio post and then into directing, producing, shooting and editing.

Pat has a passion for wildlife videography and can be found in the Canadian Arctic looking for Polar bears, Narwhals, and Bowhead Whales. After a successful career spanning over two decades, Pat had an epiphany, and that led to the idea and creation of BlackBox Global. He wants nothing less than to change the relationships that creators have with each other and the global market so they can have better lives. He invites his fellow film & video peeps to join BlackBox and make the world a place where creators can be free to do what they love, own the content they make, and be fairly compensated.Pre Show Notes-- Looking for a way to earn money with your Feature Film, B Roll, etc?
