The new venture platform that Indiewire has dubbed “a Linked-In for creatives,” Creative District, is now offering monthly $5,000 grants for ongoing web series on YouTube and Vimeo. The site, which seeks to showcase creative work to “the industry,” as well as attract various talented individuals to ongoing projects, was founded in part by Technicolor. Really, Creative District has likely dreamed up a sneaky method of integrating talent from other platforms, so keep that in mind. Still, an extra $5,000 could always come in handy. And since we know about this interesting opportunity, we think you should know about it as well:
