Join filmmaking veterans Jeff Geoffray and Kent Nichols on Saturday, July 27th starting at 1pm as they host an informal series of get-togethers to discuss everything from your latest projects to your favorite equipment. If you are in the midst of a project and need some help, don't hesitate to bring a few minutes of your dailies if you want feedback. If you have a new piece of equipment, show it off!
At the first meeting, we decided to work together to begin documenting the Maker Movement in LA. We'll take a look at how those projects are developing and try to help them along while continuing to ask the question: What can we do to help storytellers strengthen our community?
Check out the highlights of our first meeting in the video below:
Jeff Geoffray is a filmmaker and father and co-founder of Blue Rider Pictures, an independent production company established in 1991. He and his business partner, Walter Josten, have over a hundred feature films to their credit as producers, production executives or financiers. After decades in the business, he still doesn’t feel like he knows anything and, perhaps, those who work with him would agree.
Kent Nichols co-created the pioneering web series Ask A Ninja. Since then, the series has been viewed over 140 million times, quoted on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, featured in the New York Times Magazine and won numerous awards, including the first YouTube Award for Best Series. He has spoken around the world and participated in many conferences including TED, PopTech and SXSW. In October 2010, Ask a Ninja relaunced with new formats on YouTube and AskANinja.com.
