Our group will be sitting in the back by the TV's (outside).

Hello Dreamers! This will be our second meeting in an attempt to build an animation company. I have already met 3 talented young, passionate people looking to begin something special. This meeting will be very informal, hopefully attracting some new faces to our group. Our goal at this point is to discuss everyone's skills, ambitions and goals in joining a group like this. Understand, I am not ONLY looking to build with seasoned veterans in the industry, rather a concise strong-knit group wanting to learn and get the job done on a professional level.

We're not looking at taking on clients for some time now rather building an identity. I do have a project that we can start with however. It is called "Manufactured Love." We are doubling it as a 9 minute short and a music video for a band "Young London." I guess you could say our first client. As I explained to the 3 members that showed up to meeting 1, this project will work at a starting line for the projects to come. It will be a good piece to show potential clients in the future and ourselves what we're capable of. The robots are being built now, however we will need assistance on painting the set pieces and fabricating other sections of the set when that time comes.

Stop-motion will be the driving force in this company/group, however 3D & 2D animation will weigh our projects out. Ultimately, we will offer bands/musicians pre, post and production assistance in making a music video. And someday move into short and feature films.

I hope to see more people at the second meeting which will last untill 1 o'clock. If you have any questions please email me @ [masked].


*Please bring a resume and or a skills sheet. (a document explaining what skills you have in the production world)

*Also if you have any equipment list, programs. Please bring that as well.

Hope I see some new faces!

    Not sure if I can make it. Got a pretty bad pinched nerve in my back/neck. I'll see how I feel in the morning. If not I'll catch y'all on the next one.

    Cant wait to meet everyone! And be reacquainted with the people at the first meeting. I will discuss and repeat what we talked about at our last meeting. Also, I will ask a few, or maybe all of you to possibly sign a contract for work on Manufactured Love, a short film and music video. I will need assistance on some pre-production work and soon production work. I'm hoping this project will be a good example of what we can do as a team. Also, I've been throwing some names around for a company name down the road. A. House Production. I figured we will start this company there and has to do with doing everything in-house. Let me know what you think or if you have some good suggestions.
