DFS Meeting Agenda for Sunday, February 24

A former member
Dear Members,

Please upload, read & annotate all scripts on the DFS crocodoc site, giving priority to the Workshop scenes for March 24th.

Please also leave a mark on the top right side of each script indicating that you read it in its entirety.

We've updated the Calendar­ and will use from now on use it to set dates for casting calls & Workshop deadlines.

Meeting Agenda:

Obie's Short Film - "ALONE"

- Please read & comment the script for ALONE here.­

- We are currently putting a crew together. Shooting dates for the BRONX interior scenes are MARCH 4,5,6.


Jordan, Green M. & Dennis Greenberg present their projects; Script reading, Visualizing the shoot (Shooting Script/Shot List required), Post Production.

We want to have the cast locked in by March 3rd. Therefore Directors & Producers can connect to schedule a audition on a weekday evening. (Possibly at Shetler Studios)

As the DFS Workshop is still 5 weeks away. Besides our Brooklyn location members interested in producing, location scouting & production design should suggest alternative locations, that we could use for the Workshop. This will give us more choice and will probably be useful for upcoming workshops.

Directors will present their crew & equipment requirements, talk to our members individually & put a crew together for the Workshop.

Though each Director will contribute a fee to craft services, participants in assisting roles, whose desire is to learn from more experienced members, might be required to pay a small fee (<$10) for additional craft services.

To sign up for a director slot contact Green M. or Dennis Greenberg via the contact form. In that case you should have a scene in script form ready.

Sign-up slots for Directors are limited. All Director positions will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.


Filmmaking became accessible for virtually everyone. Shooting on film is beautiful and as a Director/Writer I love it but I've seen remarkable Motion Pictures shot on cell phones and DSLRs. There are many ways to make it in the Film Industry: Write a screenplay - hand it to an agent; make a short - send it to a festival; go to film school - make commercials/music videos; the key is MEET PEOPLE, WORK HARD TOGETHER, BE TENACIOUS - and

most importantly: shoot and practice.

The Filmmaking Workshop is a opportunity for every member of the DFS to actively be part of and learn the in and outs of a film production.

  • As a director you can get a feeling on how to work with actors, direct a scene from your favorite movie or experiment with camera movements or sound.

  • As a DP you will get to work with your gear.
  • As a crew member you'll see actors and directors interact and experience how it is to be & work on set.

As we want to give opportunity to as many applicants as possible we give each director a 2h time slot in which he/she can realize a chosen scene.

Other members of the group will crew on this set.

As the directors are the driving force in this project we decided it would be appropriate for them to provide the crew & actors with craft services.

For questions feel free to contact Dennis Greenberg using the contact form to your left.
