Do you have an idea for a Minute Movie but no idea where to start? No ideas? ...but you wanna help out with someone else's masterpiece. Maybe you're stumped with some aggravating production problem or just love to help other people solve theirs. Do you have a camera with no script, a script and no camera crew?
We'll be meeting every month on the 4th Sunday in support of our Minute Movies screening (that happens on the 3rd Sunday of every month). We'll gather to network and workshop. Oh, in case you're wondering what makes a Minute Movie... a one word theme is "randomly" chosen at the end of our screening to guide the direction of the next set of films. Something suggestive like: HOT or BRILLIANT or PASSION. We allow any genre be it comedy, drama, documentary, docudrama or maybe some weird experimental musical...etc. Just keep 'em original and under two minutes.
In this inaugural meetup of this series, we'll be exploring the subtle art of making a movie short. As in, not very long. Sometimes the biggest challenge is cutting your movie down to size. You want to keep all the juicy parts and feel like you've already cut it to the bone. You just don't know what else to trim. You'll get plenty of tips on where to start.
Speaking of TIPs, that's the theme for this months Minute Movies.
All comers are welcome from green-newbies to crusty-ol-pros, young and old.
What to bring: Enthusiasm, curiosity, ideas for a movie, cool resources to share, ingenuity, positive attitude ;-)
Let's make some Minute Movies!
