April Axis Nashville Filmmakers Meetup

  • April 27, 2014 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Get ready to turn your filmmaking up to eleven! Not only are you getting the most supportive community you need for helping you produce your films, you now get a television studio to call home!

How would you like to get credentialed to become a television producer of your own TV Show?

How would you like access to a professional television studio with cameras, lights, and equipment?

How would you like to tell your friends and family to tune into your show or film on TV in Nashville and across the country?

It can happen. But it starts with building a strong community of motivated, talented folks who you trust and who trust you.

We have kicked off the year with a BANG! Six films are in the works currently with more on deck. And now television shows dance in our heads as we dream of future possibilities. The only limit is your imagination.

We cannot wait to meet you and hear how you want to contribute your talent, ideas, inspiration, or help.

***UPDATE*** Sunday Potluck Cookout!

The weather Sunday is calling for scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon. Warm and 60% chance of rain. There is a large covered eating area so we should be fine.

The sun is sure to pop in and out of the clouds so it shouldn't be blazing hot all afternoon.

As folks tell me what they would like to bring, I will update this list.

This will be a non-alcoholic event (Nashville laws, not mine) so bring your kids, Frisbees, footballs, cameras, friends, and yo'self.

We'll get started at 4:00 p.m. and get down to business after we start eating around 5:00 p.m. or so. Feel free to swing by and hangout even if you only have 30 minutes.

This will be a blast! Don't miss it!

    Great to meet a lot of new faces and hear about everyone's plans. Looking forward to next month. By the way, did anyone grab my glass bowl? It had the General Tso Chicken and I forgot it at the park. :-(

    Hey, I'm glad I FINALLY made it. I had no idea there was another part of the Park. I was lost in the wooded area of Warner Park.

    There is severe weather forecasted. Could this effect the meetup?

    April 26, 2014

    • Kristin B.

      Jeff, I will not be attending. I've had some kind of allergic reaction and my left eyelid is swollen! I hate to do this last minute but everything I've tried so far hasn't helped. I was so looking forward to this.

      April 27, 2014

    • Jeff D.

      Sorry to hear about that Kristin. We'll see you next month!

      April 27, 2014

  • Jeff D.

    I know there are clouds in the sky and thunderstorms looming, so I understand if our summer cookout conditions are not ideal and you feel it's too risky to come. I will still be out there under our big shelter enjoying any rain we get. Stay safe and do what's best for you and your family. Worst case, I'll get some good rain footage!

  • Chad

    sorry to have to pull out of this month's meeting. I was involved in an accident and am currently without a car. Everything else is fine, but hate that I'll be missing you guys again this month.

    April 26, 2014

    • Jeff D.

      Chad, sorry to hear about your accident. I trust you are OK. I'm sure there are folks driving by your way that could pick you up. I can certainly pick you up if you don't mind going early and staying late.

  • Jackie G.

    I'm sorry we will miss the April meeting - it sounds like fun! But Dan Gamber and I will be out of town.

    Hello. I'm looking for a filmmaker who needs music or post production for their project. My partners and I want to get into post-production. We have been professionally trained and we want to volunteer and help a filmmaker create a great sound on their film. You may contact me at[masked]

    2 · April 4, 2014

    • Jeff D.

      Justin, thanks for reaching out. There are plenty of films needing your skills! If you don't get plugged into one soon, wait until we get closer to shooting and post production.

      April 6, 2014

    • Page L.

      Hey, Justin! Just to let you know, there is a crowdfunding website called SeedandSpark.com where you can donate more than money to films; things like props and services. So, that is another resource where you could find some films to get your work into and build that film post-production portfolio even faster!

      April 26, 2014

  • Judy K.

    We'll bring somethin!

    I'm so glad I can bring my kids!!

    I'm professional filmmaker living in Lebanon TN. My production company primarily creates aviation related programing.

    • Jeff D.

      Thanks Bob! Does this mean we can look to you for those hard to get aerial shots?

      April 6, 2014

    • Marti King Y.

      Welcome Bob! I hope to meet you soon! :D
