Join a film project! Meet your fellow filmmakers, decide where you want to contribute, and sign-up for a project you think could be fun.
A big thanks to fellow filmmaker, Mike Brown, for renting out his club to us again! 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, we are holding one Meetup per month. The rest of the time will hopefully be full of storytellers 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 February's Meetup, I would like to see two things.
1) Decide on our film projects. We now have a hand full of scripts to vote on and talk through. Be sure to a) check them out and b) vote before you show up. (To add yours, contact me.)
2) Update our Meetup profiles. If we can match a photo and a name to your real face at the Meetup, then easily jog our memories of your skills or area you want to learn about, it will be so much easier to connect you to the right project and role. Also, don't be afraid to share your work if you have it and any social media links you may have.
If we continue to keep our attendance numbers high, we can do some fun things with sponsors, like test out new gear. Ultimately, we want stronger friendships that foster the best Nashville film making scene possible.
Don't miss it!
