MARCO VAN BELLE, DIRECTOR / WRITER, OF ARTHUR AND MERLIN TALKS ABOUT NERDEO
Nerdeo played a pivotal role in the success of my feature film Arthur & Merlin. Being a very low budget production, we couldn’t afford to go to a big VFX company and instead knew that we’d need to outsource each individual shot to freelance artists. But we knew that we needed great freelancers, people who were hungry to show what they could do. Nerdeo was perfect because it’s a platform designed for hungry, ambitious people – filmmakers who want to make their projects great, and artists who want to put themselves out there and prove themselves in the industry. It was also very important to us that we paid every artist who worked on the film, and using Nerdeo allowed us to streamline our workflows and hiring processes to free up as much money as possible for fees. Did it work? Well, thanks in no small part to the work of the artists we sourced through Nerdeo, Arthur & Merlin has been picked up for distribution in every major territory in the world and has already been released to great success in the UK and USA. So I owe Nerdeo and its artists a huge thank you.

I was able to do some matte painting on this film. Great project to work on, made a few bucks, and got another credit on my IMDB page. Thanks, guys!
