INTRODUCTION: Hello fellow artists. My name is Jamaal. This meetup should focus on Screenplays. That is not to say that we are not interested in other areas. On the contrary. This meetup is about independent films in general. Like any team or organization. We need talented people in all areas. Every area is just as important as any other. Just as all organs in the human body are important and all the stars in the sky are just as important as all others.
WHO SHOULD JOIN: Committed artists only. Those individuals who enjoy the endeavor of indie films in itself more than the goal of "making" it to Hollywood. This group is a close knit group of artistic friends who do many things together. Art is just one aspect. We laugh, drink, take walks, eat, talk on the phone, cry, work and many other things together. To join this organization of artists, you must be willing to let people get close to you. That is a must. It is a challenge and we all have trust issues perhaps, but you have to get over that. Please give yourself a chance.
1. Make Friends.
2. Build a cohesive group of imaginative artists.
3. To be the primary source of retro material in the film industry.
4. Produce indie films.
5. Make art that inspires and uplifts our county, the Bay Area and the world.
Let's take this artistic journey together and see were it leads. The adventure starts now. We'll ditch boring reality and explore the world of imagination. By by daily grind, hello excitement! Be part of a group that needs your artistic input and values you as a person.
The pack is stronger than the individual. If you've ever had artistic dreams but could never even seem to get started relax...you are not alone on that one.
