    Hi all. I am rewriting "The Vanquished" in preparation for the resubmission to the Bluecat contest. I'm on a roll and shouldn't take out the 3 to 4 hours of commitment to the meet up tonight. If anyone wants to take my spot, jump in. Have a great meetup!

    Appreciation & Inspiration...

    I really appreciate the weekly Meetups, the Podcasts and the third party events that this group promotes.  I attended the WGA’s Digital Discourse Event last night.  It was informative, interesting and inspirational.  As anyone involved in the filmmaking process (aspiring writers/editors/filmmakers), it’s so easy to isolate and become discouraged.  I work a day job doing very uninspiring work, and I have a baby and wife at home so it’s challenging to continue developing indie movies.  Hearing from all the interesting people in the trenches of digital content creation and distribution re-charged my creative batteries.  The whole experience made me see and believe in new possibilities.  Once again, I learned the importance of staying connected.    Thank you so much.  Please let me know if there are any others.  Dominic Perez

      I agree with this. I love coming together with like-minded people to get me out of the writer isolation. I wish I had someone tonight because I am so unmotivated and want to zoo out in front of the TV instead of rewriting in preparation for the Bluecat. Hope you are all well!

    Every writer/artist/athlete, etc. must submit to mentoring by a teacher, coach, etc. This is the best way to see oneself and her work in a three dimensional format. If you want to dance the ballet, be prepared to work with a strict ballet instructor. Barishnykov did not become the greatest ballet dancer ever by himself. Serena Williams did not become the number one tennis player by herself. Each was guided by and submitted to a mentor/committee, humbly asking for coaching and the keys to make themselves the greater. It is detrimental to one's art to not submit to a higher learning by coach or by committee. Even AA members need a higher power lest they fall back in to darkness of addiction. The process is grueling, yes, and there will be gnashing of the teeth and petty conflicts. But this is the ONLY way to achieve greatness and for this method I am grateful as I have been rewarded by announcing myself as an artist of the craft of screenwriting.

    Hi, I'm Pierre. I'm a NYC based film/video editor working on a script. Can someone enlighten me on the format of these meetups? Seems interesting but I don't really understand what role 'Rescue Dog' or other title material plays in the meetings. cheers.

    November 4, 2013

    • Pierre F.

      Thanks, Rebecca. That's what I was hoping the answer would be. At first, I thought these might be extended PR sessions for the title work and your answer laid that to rest. Do you know how one submits their script for a review/meetup? Thanks again!

    • Rebecca M.

      Hi Pierre. I tried to post the file here but it won't fit. So look right below the great big NYC Screenwriters Collective banner at the top of your screen. See the headers: Home Members Sponsors Photos Pages Discussions More. Pick "More" then pick "Files." Scroll down. The 9th and 10th entries are instructions for Movie and TV submissions.
