CFF Writers' Rendezvous (Save The Cat!)

TOP SECRET:

Members only...This means YOU :)

 

MISSION:

SAVE THE CAT?? ....No, We're going to LIONIZE HIM!

 

WHAT:

Join Darrell Parker and some of your favorite Sacramento Screenwriters to cover the first ten pages of your script or should time allow the three beat aspects of those first ten pages: Opening Image, Theme States and Set-up. Darrell has "Save the Cat Goes to the Movies", and can present multiple examples for specific genres at the meeting for those not sure or just beginning.

 

GOALS:

We want to get our screenwriters ready for the AMERICAN SCREENWRITING CONFERENCE with Lew Hunter next April in Sacramento! The final deadline for submission is November so lets get to crackin!! You don't have to submit to the contest to participate but we love having deadlines. After-all, working screenwriters usually have deadlines!

 

WHY:

Look, don't think about it too much. Just do it. We don't care where you are in your training. You will learn something! You are among friends :)

    Hey Darrell, I agree 6pm may be a bit early. If you can have the room till 9pm perhaps 6:30 or 7pm is a good start point. Also, I want everyone to have time to read some pages so how late can you have the room?

    Hey, Darrell, so far as I know I'm okay with the July date but do we really want to start at 6:00 PM? Might work better to start a bit earlier. Or has it to do with the libraries hours on that date?

    I enjoyed meeting all of you and I learned a few things from Darrell and Greg. Bought "Save the Cat" on Amazon for $14. Sorry for flaking on the Sizzling Summer Party, after saying I would attend - had to pack for LA. I wanted to network with screenwriters and nibble on Thai food. Instead, I nibbled on sea squirts in Koreatown. If you are not familiar with sea squirts, your not missing much. You can't eat the thick bumpy rubber skinned sea creatures. They flavor the soup. You are supposed to bite into the creature and pop the fishy flavor juice out of the body. I don't recommend them. I will see you all at the next gig.

    The library worked great for me. You might want to reserve it for an additional hour.

    Do we still save the cat if it is a zombie? Great group, tons of valuable info.

    Meeting went good, Darrell had a nice focal point to build the meeting around (no, not telling, you had to be there to find out - so be there next time). Best part was hooking up with a couple of folk afterwards to offer input, advice, and encouragement on our common journey as screenwriters.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
