This is a meetup for anyone who is interested in this project and in creating a true sanctuary space where M&E creatives and entrepreneurs can come to innovate and develop new ideas, projects and to network.
Film Loft (https://www.nyfilmloft.com/) Incubator Space will be a place where storytellers, entrepreneurs, and professionals from Film, Television, and 360/Virtual/Augmented/Mixed Reality come to build their dreams. We operate as both a coworking space with a supportive infrastructure (services, relationships, resources, technology and events) and an incubator for both content creation and media, entertainment, and vr/ar startups.
Like other coworking spaces we of course provide our members with a beautiful communal workspace, high speed internet able to handle those big media files, conference rooms for those important meetings, a cafe to recharge and lots of natural light to keep the atmosphere positive and full of energy!
