Read Writer's Scripts-Actors and Writers Please Attend!

This will be our very first meeting with the new group! Everyone is encouraged to come so we can do introductions and chat before we start in.

Writers, please post your projects on this Meetup group. Go to "More" and then click on "Files" and upload your projects there. Your project must be 10 pages or shorter. You can bring a short, a webisode, or something from a feature length screenplay but it must be under 10 pages. If you don't upload your project before we meet, we cannot read your project in the group that night. It's very important writers, that if you want actors to read your script that you come prepared with copies for all the roles as well as for the narrator. You must bring copies...Also, I know it seems crazy, but please have your script properly formatted as if you were submitting it to Warner Brothers. If you don't have Final Draft or Movie Magic, there is a free program called Celtx that you can use to write your scripts.

Actors, please read over the scripts submitted in the files section on this site...under more...and if you see a role you'd like to read for, please either contact the writer beforehand or before the meeting, or just come to the meeting and the writer will ask for volunteers.

Writers, when you get to the meeting, please sign in and write down your project. We will read projects on a first come first serve basis. If your project doesn't get read that night, we will put you on the top of the list for the next meeting.

That's it! I hope we see a lot of groovy peeps at our first meeting!

    Good thinking Maric. I'll pass that one on to Che and my other
    "hermanos" when I see them again. That's assuming Bill Gates and
    his cyber-contras haven't gotten to them too.

    Maric,
    Same here. I'm still looking for a coup to house my carrier pigeons.

    Later.

    Thanks, Maric.
    Glad you liked my comment. At least that's what the banner said. I'm still fairly green with all this cyber-stuff. I'm never sure if people ate getting what I'm sending.
    Please acknowledge.

    Thanks.

    Maric,

    If we're going that far back, I'll bring my Grecian lute and lyre.

    No, no, Maric, not the vinyls but maybe the 8 tracks.

    Thanks Yvonne, Maric and Michael.
    I'll be making my usual grudging effort to make my peace with
    "technocracy", as Mercuse so coined it and be more on top of it in future. Look forward to meeting you all soon.

    Later.

    P.S. Maric. Remind me to be there for the donation, along with my kerosene lamps, hand looms and Beatles albums

    A good first meeting if I do say so myself. Thank-you everybody. Nice meeting you all.

    July 9, 2013

  • David

    Oops, I just saw that the meeting is outside. In the Valley. Where it's 90 degrees :( I'm bummed -- I'll have to pass and perhaps catch you next time when it's not so damned hot.

    July 8, 2013

    • Yvonne

      David, out of respect for others that wanted to attend but could not because you had rsvp yes, I made that comment. If you know that it is 90 in the valley and we are meeting outside and you do not wish to attend please do not rsvp yes. As far as being 'testy' or abrupt, I apologize if it seemed that way to you. I unfortunately do not have the extra time and energy to focus on making everyone feel good. I am already creating the space for you to come and share and get feedback on your work. The rest is your responsibility.

      July 9, 2013

      It wasn't that hot at 7:00. I brought a sweater and didn't need it until the end.

    Hi, David, et al.
    I'm the one you upraidef Yvonne for upraiding in regard to receiving
    short notice about the meetup. At the risk of sounding prehistoric, I must confess that I'm still somewhat new to this cyber-communications "thing." I prefer telephones with actual voices on the other end! I'm also one of those inveterate raptosaurs who actually composes hand written letters on personalized stationary. Imagine that in this day and age!
    And yet, I must be doing something right because my friends are always delighted to receive them.
    At any rate, not noticing the meet up posting was probably my fault.
    Looking forward to meeting you and everyone else at next getogther.

    Later.

    Brian John.

    • Yvonne

      Hi Brian, I prefer that too. However, times have swept over us. It may seem that I am a bit abrupt, however, I just like getting to the point. Sine Lisa and I not only pay to have this meetup group, we spend our time and energy to have a 'space' where people can come and share and learn and grow. We expect everyone to be responsible for the things they choose to do.

    I don't have a script. Are short stories an acceptable entry?

    June 27, 2013

      Unfortunately we only do screenplays. They can be short screenplays. But need to be in that format.
