I've noticed that new groups are being formed on Stack Exchange. This is the first place I come to post programming questions. Can we also have a Stack Exchange site for filmmakers? It would cover questions having to do with film production, including cinematography, budgeting, directing, producing, special effects, etc.

Any thoughts?

    There's Area 51 for proposing new sites.

    Stack Exchange sites are not forums, nor groups.

There is a proposal on Area 51. You may also be interested in the Theatre proposal there.


In addition to the filmmaker proposal, there is also Audio-Video Production, currently in beta. This covers some of the technical aspects.


There's now a new attempt to open a Filmmaking StackExchange Q&A site:

Filmmaking Proposal
