Hello Melrose! I put together this MeetUp to try to get a handle on the amount of amateur/professional filmmakers / post production folks living here in Melrose.
I've been impressed with the film/video community in Sommerville; they have some great events. That said, I suspect there are a lot more people here in Melrose, with interest in film/video, than any of us even realize; I'm hoping this group may bring those numbers to light.
In the almost two years I've lived in Melrose, I have found that they teach video editing in the high school (which is really cool), I've been by MMTV (great ppl & resources), and I have come across the Filmmakers Collaborative site (great workshops/events). Melrose appears to be a good spot for film/video.
If there is interest, I will schedule some MeetUps... no agenda but to meet one another and shoot the shit about film/video... light food beer/wine. I have access to a handful of spots here in Melrose depending upon the numbers.
