Filmmakers Exchange - Wed. March 13, 7:30 p.m.

  • March 13, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • Changemakers Productions

This will be a event to both network and show, discuss, and get feedback on what you're working on and comment on others' ideas. I have a 52" screen for DVDs and a 36" screen for viewing websites on the Internet, so you can show your work in various formats.

We'll start off with networking and a potluck from 7:30-8:00. Come with business cards. If you have projects where you are looking for participants, such as directors and actors, you can announce these. We have a Casting Connection box for actors who want to bring their headshots and resumes, and anyone looking for actors can look through this.

The forum featuring clips, works in progress, scripts for feedback, script ideas, pitch approaches, etc. will be from 8:00-9:30 or 10, followed by more networking until 10. Bring your clips to show what you are working on, and if you want feedback on any film and TV projects -- from ideas to videos you are ready to promote, please come with your questions for discussion. For feedback on a script, bring up to 10 pages, and we'll do a reading with different roles.  I just sold a book on finding funds for films and TV projects and wrote and produced two films just shown at the Castro Theater March 2nd (one came in among the top three), so I can talk about that. Whether you're a producer, director, screenwriter, actor, or otherwise involved in the film or TV industries, please join us.

Some possible topics for feedback might be:  
- deciding which project to produce  
- choosing a title for your film or TV show  
- making choices on casting  
- developing a pitch for selling your film, TV show idea, or script  
- creating an ad campaign  
- making choices about locations  
- choosing a director or DP  
- determining what festivals to enter  
- deciding on different approaches to your Website  
- getting feedback on your script  
- finding funding

Come with your ideas, and we'll have room to showcase and provide feedback for 6-7 participants. Everyone else, just share your feedback.

For those who haven't been here before, I'll send out the exact location and directions a few days before the event for those who have RSVPed. I'll provide some juice and soda. Please indicate what you are bringing in the comments when you RSVP, so we have a nice diversity of things.

As in my other groups, I have a No Show/No Cancellation policy, so if you sign up, don't show and don't cancel, after 2 times, you won't be able to sign up for this event anymore.

I'll look forward to seeing everyone at the event.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
