Writing for short movies meetup.

Dear all,
I am new to this group, my name is Rudy. I am looking to produce a small number of short movies, and am looking for stories.
Compared with writing a novel, making a film can be very restrictive. Ideally these stories are simple to produce, so perhaps no science fiction, large amount of characters, impossible locations etc.
I am ready to put professional production value in these projects, including pro-camera, lighting, sound, and editing. Is anybody interested to have a casual meet up, where we can discus some ideas? Both Japanese and English is no problem! 日本語でも全然大丈夫よ!

I should probably add that these projects are not aimed at making a profit, and that it is unpaid (also for me). The goal is to get exposure; online, and possibly at festivals if the result is solid.
See you!
Rudy

    The typhoon has begun in kichijouji. I am already there, so the meetup is on. You guys will have to decide for yourselves if you come. You can come early if you want to. The café is open at least till last train. Let me know if you come or cancel! Send me a private message if you want my phone number.

      I will literally take a rain check and cancel today. Hope the typhoon isn't that bad.

    I posted photos on how to recognize the place. If you take the right exit, it's only about 20-30 meters.

    Rudy, can you tell me how you were able to hack my meetup and schedule an event with out ever talking to me, meeting me, or coming to another of our regular monthly meetings? Since 7 members are interested in coming I will not change this meetup on the site but in the future please do not post meetings here. If you have some ideas of events, please run them by me. Thanks
    Lauren

      Thanks Lauren! No "hacking" is needed. I think it's an option that everybody has here. From what I remember seeing a meetup get's announced if 2 people or so sign up. How they knew about it, I don't know. If you are really so keen on being in control, then you might want to post some rules somewhere. Good luck!

    As you have seen on the news or read here, a typhoon is headed for Tokyo. Umbrella's are cute, but without proper rain gear you will get very wet. The real problem however could be the trains, which might stop running for a while. If hell breaks loose by 17:30, I might cancel the meetup, so keep an eye on the messages.
    If you want to come no matter what (maybe you live in Kichijouji), I will probably be there anyway. Let's hope it stays relatively quiet! And looking forward to meeting you guys!

    September 30, 2012

  • lauren s.

    FYI please be careful writers- the start of the typhoon scheduled to come to us today/tomorrow is supposed to be around 3-4pm today.
    Bring an umbrella and your rain boots!

    I've entered the location. The map is accurate too, all the way up to the building. It is on the 8th floor. It's a cute little cafe.
    The sign is kind of hard to see from outside. There is just a small sign downstairs before the elevator, on a board together with the other companies in that building.

    Hi Rudy. I'm new to Meetup and this is the first group I joined :) I would like to go to this meeting in Kichijyouji if there is a spot open for one more.

    I suggest we meet in Kichijouji. It is not completely central, but in the weekend it only takes 15 min. from Shinjuku with the Chuo line. You can also go straight from Shibuya with the Inokashira line. If we meet in a place like Shinjuku, you will usually walk about 15 min anyway, after getting out of the train. And everywhere will be crowded on Sunday. My friend runs a small quiet cafe only a few min walk from Kichijouji Station. He even offered to reserve and close the place for us, but I only want to ask him that if plenty of people really confirm to come. But even with 7 people there will always be seats, closed or not. So please let me know who is really coming to Kichijouji at Sunday 7pm. Will post the map/website tomorrow if you guys are okay with the place.

      Hey! I can make it to the meeting tomorrow

      September 29, 2012

  • Ava W.

    Maybe we could meet in Shinjuku or Shibuya, somewhere semi-central. Don't know anywhere specific we could go, though

    Who else can meet on Sunday? I will put that date for now, if there are no other people who can join we'll change it. Danny we can can meet next time or separately, as I am afraid I will be hard to find out a perfect time for all. Let's keep talking!

    September 26, 2012

  • Ava W.

    Can I suggest Sunday evening around 7? Can meet anywhere in Tokyo.

      This Sunday is out for me, I have a friend flying in.

    Great, thanks for the responses! Let me think about a place and date, and will get back to you guys tonight or tomorrow.

    Let me just make clear that I am very open for all kinds of ideas (narrative/documentary/abstract), and that I have come up with little myself yet. That's I guess why I want to talk to all of you! To say a little about myself: I work in video production and photography. I do a lot of editing, but also some filming when needed. I have been working for a corporate client for over 5 years in Tokyo, and haven't really gotten around to do much "artistic" work. So I want to get that going. Please don't set your expectations high, but I have some skills, and am trying to put together a team. It's the interactions within a crew that I miss most since moving to Tokyo.

    And of course, the script/story is most important! :)

    Suggestion for a meeting time are welcome, I am quite flexible myself you see!

    Cheers,
    Rudy

    Hey Rudy I'm looking to do the same thing. Want to meet up?

    Interesting. I am a performance artist out of the US and I have written a few pieces with a few characters and no props. I believe the dialogue, acting, directing and location make the story. I would love to meet and find out more of what you have in mind.

    If I see there is interest, I can put a location and time. Feel free to suggest one BTW!
