We’ve been hearing from a great many filmmakers lately, asking us to do something to help the many individuals who are hurting right now. And so we’re responding with two significant announcements.
First, we’re extending our commitment to donate 20% of all sales to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Initially we had the donation period going through the end of March, but we’re now giving through all of April as well. You can read our original announcement here.
We know there are people around the world who need help right now, and it’s difficult to know where your support can be most impactful. But we believe it’s important to do whatever you can, wherever you can.
For us, many of our filmmaking friends, family and colleagues work in the LA area, where school and business closures have made it incredibly difficult for children, working adults, and seniors to get the food they need. So if you’re thinking about an MZed Pro membership, know that 20% of your purchase will provide about 240 meals to those hungry individuals.
It’s a powerful feeling to know that you are helping people in need directly, while investing in your own education. We hope together we’ll be able to make a significant contribution during the month of April, and come out of this pandemic feeling wiser and more connected to each other than ever before.
Get One, Give One
In that same spirit of giving and helping one another during this difficult time, today we are also launching an initiative where filmmakers can support other filmmakers. Right now when you purchase an MZed Pro membership, you’ll not only be supporting the LA Food Bank, but you’ll also receive a gift MZed Pro membership that you can give to someone else.
In our isolated world right now, here is a way you can reach out to another filmmaker and connect over a shared love of filmmaking and learning. We’re all in this together, and if we’re going to be spending a lot of time at home, we may as well learn together as well.
How does it work? When you buy an MZed Pro membership, we’ll send you an email with a unique discount code for one free MZed Pro membership. The email will have instructions for how to register the gift membership via our site. You can select anyone you want to receive the gift membership, as long as you have their email address. Then your recipient will receive an email with their login instructions and they’ll be ready get started!
Let’s break down our isolation walls and connect with each other, share our love for filmmaking, raise our collective spirits, and learn some valuable filmmaking skills along the way. When all this is over, we’ll all be more grateful for each other and for our shared experiences, more than we ever have before.
