Well, here's hoping this goes through, Meetup is locked down and difficult to deal with...
in any case, here's a link list for the new and Improved ParisFilmCrew web site, which has two rubrics: longer articles/content, and brief items, the News of Today.
This week we've got the audio from Judith's talk, and various other things, between event and technique. I hope you find something of interest, even if it just a posting about you....
and please don't forget to share this all on social media, there are share links for each item, and you can also follow via the share buttons in the sidebar.
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."
