Date: Tue, 3 Jan[masked]:40:48 -0500
it is or was the new year for some, and i am struggling to get up to speed with the group, thus the lack of capital letters in parts of my communication.
i have revised the description of the group, to make it either more or less informative, depending on your decision about the content.
i am also hoping to be able to keep up with individual correspondence, please except apologies if i don't reply immediately.
mainly, i am writing to ask for votes on place and date for next meeting. i don't want to meet outdoors, i wouldn't mind with a cafe or bar, starbucks gives me shivers but i will go there too, since i hear you used to go there. i live in the east, the center is good, i can't really get to the west. I may have swapped east and west, so maybe center is best.
your reply will go to the whole group, so be polite.
<group description, revised 01.12>
This is a group for "independents" making what used to be called Films.
Independent is a really wide-spectrum term, non-commercial to commercial, doc to experimental to publicity. Often it means that you aren't working for hire, which has an effect on everything from choice of subject to eventual copyright.
Since the independent community in France has a different structure then, for example, in English speaking countries, it is good to have a place where people can meet to share information, pool experience, and, if wanted, collaborate on production of these Films.
So, this is that. Or one of them.
Experience is good.
Inexperience with a will [ie eyes, ears, memory, and half a plan] is good as well.
A general sense of community is important as well... turn competitors into colleagues, and everyone benefits.
Acting, writing, cinematography, directing, motion graphics, scene design, sound designer, etc... all welcome.
As said above, experimental, short fiction, publicity, documentary, live mix, cable tv, feature fiction, theatre scenography, music clip, films for the blind, whatever, your choice.
And the goal?
Show up. Allen, Woody, said that's 80 percent.
Offer information. Offer to collaborate. Offer a project for collaboration. The original goal of this long lived group was to somehow for some to make films together, and somehow show them to others. This happened, and will again.
So, if you are new, and made it this far, I offer this quote from Juli, the founder: "Please fill out your profile and tell us about your particular interests/experience in creating Films."
