As part of our monthly meeting for November, we'd like to have a day of shooting. It would be a full day of shooting, dedicated to filming various shorts (approximately 3min or less in length). At our last table reading we discussed this idea, and we'd really love to get filming this month on some new pieces.
With that in mind, I'd like to ask all our members if they have a location that might be available to us to film either on Saturday November 22nd or Sunday November 23rd. The location could be a restaurant, a bar, a house, an apartment, an office...anything. The only thing that matters is that it's a large enough location for us to film in, and the the owner is cool with us filming there for the entire day.
So, if you think you know of a cool place for us to shoot, let me know! Be sure to include details like the address and your phone number so I can confirm the location with you. Thanks so much! ~Amber
A Painter needs only a paintbrush and a canvas; a musician needs only two turntables and a microphone! Yet to be a filmmaker it seems thousands of dollars are needed to make something that nobody is going to see anyway or to be an actor you must wait for someone else to give you exposure. If you're one of those people waiting around for financing to come through so you can make or star in Citizen Kane II that's cool, I'm not.
This organization is for people who have stories to tell and opinions to express. Lots of people sit around and talk of all the great things they are going to do, that's not you. You want to get out there and make interesting films/videos with few resources beyond your brain and drive.
So if you like writing, shooting video, acting, organizing shoots, recording sound, editing sound or video, lighting, costume, set design, location, make-up, animation or whatever, just come out and get involved, it will be fun and rewarding.
This is not about being cool, it doesn't matter if you want to be involved in controversial stuff or kids stuff, bring whatever you want to the table. Looking forward to hearing your ideas.
