About

TheDoorPost used to be

The Doorpost Film Project was originally launched in 2009 as a film contest. It was hugely successful and well-received as you can read in this article from VARIETY magazine. In its an inaugural year, The Doorpost Film Project’s website received over 250,000 unique visits from over 122 countries and gave away over $260,000 to 15 filmmakers who produced short films on the topic of HOPE.

Today, we are still operating around the central theme of HOPE. However, we are now known only as THE DOORPOST PROJECT. Though we still reach people from numerous continents, backgrounds, and careers within filmmaking communities, we have been relaunched under new ownership with a new vision. No longer are we just a film contest, The Doorpost Project is now an ever-growing community of entertainment industry people of all disciplines. We are dedicated to helping move content creators beyond creating mere entertainment into the realm of INFLUENCE.

The Doorpost Project has always been an international community of entertainment professionals. It was specifically designed to serve both seasoned and upcoming visionaries in the industry. Although we believe the film contest is a great way to showcase the gifts and talents those visionaries have, it’s only just part of the process. INSPIRATION is the other part. And how do we inspire the entertainment community on a global scale? Enter: The Doorpost Podcast Project.

OUR PODCAST

The Doorpost Podcast Project is a weekly entertainment business podcast, hosted by Duane Barnhart, interviewing some of today’s most successful and inspiring Entertainment Entrepreneurs. What is an entertainment entrepreneur, you ask? Good question. These are the people who are NOT okay with the status quo. These are people who want more… Who wants to create more… Who want to influence more!

An entertainment entrepreneur is anyone that is in the entertainment industry who sees themselves as their own brand. In other words, whether you are a Producer, Director, Grip, Lawyer, Actor, Casting Director, Studio Executive or any other title you can fill in the blank with, you need to be thinking like an entrepreneur if you want to break through and get to the next level in your career. YOU are the BRAND so start treating yourself like one. Here, our listeners will learn to market themselves properly, network more, and create content that reflects they are.

It was Milton Berle who said, “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” At its core, The Doorpost Podcast Project’s goal is helping our audience learn to build doors of opportunity. We do that by shining a spotlight on our featured guests as they share their journey of successes and failures, hard work and big breaks, lessons learned and the steps taken to turn those lessons into accomplishments. We close each show with our version of a “lightning round” where Duane asks his guests a series of personal questions so we can get to know them better.

The Doorpost Podcast Project is all about inspiring our listeners to take entrepreneurial ACTION and realize their dreams!
