Creative COW

Tutorials, Articles, Interviews, How-To, Making Of, Editorials

Welcome to the all-new 2019 Creative COW Library, filled with tutorials and other articles of interest for professionals working in film, broadcast, corporate and project video, audio, and related crafts. The Library features many working pros who share their stories and their talents with COW members around the globe.

You will find great behind-the-scenes looks into the making of some of the biggest blockbusters, as well as explorations of small independent projects that fill the needs of niche markets that Creative COW members meet with their vision and craft. While we love to tell the big stories, we also feel it a special privilege to look into the smaller projects that highlight the originality and vision of our membership. If you have a story, a feature, an editorial, a tutorial, or any other related article that you'd like to share, please contact us. If you are busy, we will help you create the article.

To all our contributing editors who make the Creative COW Library a useful repository of knowledge and craft for our members, we would like to say a big thank you from all of us at Creative COW. Your stories and ideas are what has made the COW great for two decades now
