January Jump-Start Nashville Filmmakers Meetup at VIBE

  • Jan 12, 2014 · 7:00 PM

Start 2014 right! Meet your fellow filmmakers, share your film ideas, and join arms with a team that can make it happen this year!

A big thanks to fellow filmmaker, Michael Brown, for renting out his club to us for our first meeting! We'll have a private setting to get to know each other and talk, with access to drinks next door at the bar. What's not to like?

This year, I am planning to organize one Meetup per month. The rest of the time will hopefully be full of directors and film teams shooting various projects that you all dream up. These monthly Meetups will act as touch points to share stories, build your team, get feedback, and make friends. Toward the end of the year, I hope to screen our films.

For January's Meetup, I would like to see two things.

1) A large turn out. We have the room and tons of talent in our ranks. There's never a better time than now to ensure 2014 is your year.

2) Three tangible film project options we can rally around, support, and make happen this year. If you don't come and share it with us, or come and raise your hand to help, you might miss out on a great opportunity to lead, learn, or progress in your film making.

I would love to grow this group large enough to attract sponsors, the right talent to bring us to the next level, and stronger friendships that foster the best Nashville film making scene possible.

Don't miss it!

--Jeff Dolan, Director & Organizer, Nashville Filmmakers

    This was a cool meet up. It was a mixture of cool and intimidating. I did make a few contacts which is awesome. I'm a novice as far as doing things behind the scene, but hopefully I'll learn some stuff by next month's meet up.

    The wetting was very beneficial to everyone. I applaud our effort to make this successful. Much thanks to Jeff and Michael for spearheading this. I wanted to include a link to some production forms to be used on your next project. http://lisacookfilm.wordpress.com/production-forms/

    Thanks.

    Great way to start off 2014, in the midst of other creative people with similar goals and visions. Looking forward to the collaboration, cross referrals, education, and motivation this group is sure to bring to one another. Please look me up on YouTube to see my first music video as director (I'm Gonna Watch You Santa), and the most recent samples of my music production can be heard on SoundCloud.com/neilebanks

    Hello --
    It was great meeting everyone last night.
    Here is the project I'm working on. RACE WITH THE DEVIL (10 MINUTE SHORT)
    A man defends his best buddy in a drag race (muscle car vs. rat rod) against Mr. Scratch (based on The Devil and Daniel Webster).

    I’m looking for a film crew to help put this short together.
    Two locations: dive bar and rural backroad.

    If anyone is interested, please contact me ([masked]) and I can send you more info. Thank you, again for allowing me to present my idea.

    do newspaper work ever so often.I've written 3 teleplays similar
    to whats on "Showtime'..Have any of you seen the award winning

    • Jeff D.

      Marge, thanks for your offer to help. We can also take a look at any scripts you write as a potential to produce. If you feel really up to it, you could record a video of yourself (iPhone is fine) giving us a 3 minute pitch and we'll play it for the group.
