Film Exchange in San Francisco on Tuesday, July 16 at 7:30 p.m.

From: Gini Graham S.

This will be a event to both network and show, discuss, and get feedback on what you're working on and comment on others' ideas. I have a 36" screen for viewing DVDs and websites on the Internet, so you can show your work in various formats.

We'll start off with networking and a potluck from 7:30-8:00. Come with business cards. If you have projects where you are looking for participants, such as directors and actors, you can announce these. We have a Casting Connection box for actors who want to bring their headshots and resumes, and anyone looking for actors can look through this.

The forum featuring clips, works in progress, scripts for feedback, script ideas, pitch approaches, etc. will be from 8:00-9:30 or 10, followed by more networking until 10. Bring your clips to show what you are working on, and if you want feedback on any film and TV projects -- from ideas to videos you are ready to promote, please come with your questions for discussion. For feedback on a script, bring up to 10 pages, and we'll do a reading with different roles.  I just sold a book on finding funds for films and TV projects, wrote and produced three films, the latest shown at the Castro Theater July 6, and am working on a promotional campaign to set up distribution and financing for a full-length feature, so I can talk about that. Whether you're a producer, director, screenwriter, actor, or otherwise involved in the film or TV industries, please join us.

Some possible topics for feedback might be:  
- deciding which project to produce  
- choosing a title for your film or TV show  
- making choices on casting  
- developing a pitch for selling your film, TV show idea, or script  
- creating an ad campaign  
- making choices about locations  
- choosing a director or DP  
- determining what festivals to enter  
- deciding on different approaches to your Website  
- getting feedback on your script  
- finding funding

Come with your ideas, and we'll have room to showcase and provide feedback for 6-7 participants. Everyone else, just share your feedback.

This is being sponsored through the Bay Area Film and TV Connection and San Francisco Film Industry group, so if you are interested, sign up there (ie: www.meetup.com/bayareafilmandtvconnection).

I'll send out the exact location and directions a day or two before the event for those who have RSVPed. I'll provide some juice and soda. Please indicate what you are bringing in the comments when you RSVP, so we have a nice diversity of things.
