FIRST, we'd like to welcome all our many new members who've not been previously welcomed (and that's a LOT OF YOU!) ... into our friendly & relaxed membership! We hope you will soon attend a Stumptown function and get to know some of our members ... perhaps making a new friend or three.
More details for this upcoming meetup-meeting may be added to this notice. But nevertheless this meeting should be of interest to any and every member who's expressed an interest in Stumptown Movie Makers, whether you're an experienced film maker ... or just curious about the process of film making.
From writing scripts, producing, directing, acting, makeup, camera work, lighting, sound, set design and construction, editing, music track production, or "Newbee Go-fer" ... whatever fits with your interests and skill level ... our group offers and encompasses a potential to get involved ... and learn if you desire. For only the investment of a little of your time and commitment, you can get some of what others have paid significant dollars for in experience and exposure to the interesting and expansive craft of movie making!
Whatever your interest and capacity, you might decide YOU want to get involved in making a movie ( your movie, one of ours, or someone else's ...!)
Come add to our discussions, ask questions, comment, or just sit back and listen. Learn about a project you might want to participate in, or suggest one of your own. And if you have one, please consider bringing one of your projects to share on screen (we have one or more short pieces already scheduled to show). Or you may just watch and enjoy.
Perhaps a few of you may want to come to share plans for a film making project you have in the works? You might request assistance from other Stumptown Members who are potential volunteer crew members (paid or not), with or without all kinds of film making equipment and expertise.
OK, now I'd like to apologize and say I'm sorry we've been so delayed in setting up this meet-up. We (Craig and I) have both been rather busy working on multiple actual ongoing projects (which was -- and is -- the reason for our getting involved in Stumptown in the beginning! And we are having fun and being creative!
Please note that the two of us who have taken on the current responsibility of "running" this all volunteer (and free membership) group, would like to invite others to volunteer and to assist in any way you might consider. We can use the help, and you could extend the value of our group!
We believe in the real potential of value to the extended local film making community offered by our group, and that is one of the reasons we have personally covered most of the related costs to keep it going. (The Meetup Website being the primary financial expense to maintain our presence online, and plenty of time donated to deal with many necessary group related tasks).
Sign-up to attend soon, and lets make this one of our best meetings!
Thanks so much for your attention and participation,
to all you Stumptown Movie Makers Members ...
