Gathering of Documentary Filmmakers (and Wannabes) $5

This August meeting is a special treat as we will get a chance to talk with Vasant K. Patel whose daughter's documentary, Meet the Patels offers a unique and intimate look into a modern day search for love as Ravi, Mr. Patel's son, looks for the love of his life. Do yourself a favor and watch this movie before we meet (on Netflix, Youtube or Amazon). More info: Find out what it was like to "star" in a documentary about his family's life, the ups and downs, challenges and where he and his wife are heading now.

Your hosts for this monthly meetup: Andy Heck and Julie McElmurry. Andy, a wealth of filmmaking wisdom and experience has a wide area of expertise. Julie just completed filing on what will be her seventh short documentary. She's interviewed over 100 people on camera and has a few tips on working with the camera shy.

THIS IS FOR YOU: If you are interested in making docs or helping make docs. We're building a community of people and we'd love for you to be part of it. We use the word "wannabe" in an admiring, not pejorative way, so come on out.

WHY YOU OUGHTA COME: To get to know other area people who are into the same thing you are, it is such a great feeling to be around people who "get it".
