Filmmakers,

Our first Meetup of 2010 has been scheduled for Tuesday, January 26th, at 7 p.m. Please come and introduce yourself to the group. Submit your ideas for how we can best use this Meetup for networking.

We want to devise an agenda for the group that can profit our members. Tell us what resources and skills you have that can be offered to other members. What do others have that would be useful to you?

We are in the formative stage of developing this group to be a place for Louisiana filmmakers to connect with each other on a monthly basis, and we welcome all the input and suggestions that you care to share for the best use of this Meetup.

I am delighted to announce that Steve Scaffidi, a local screenwriter/director,
http://www.imdb.com/n...
will be our first guest of the year. Steve is an active member of the Louisiana filmmakers' community, and he will be speaking to us on the most important aspect of all: Distribution

Join us from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in the private room at the Shoney's restaurant in Metairie near New Orleans:

Shoneys
759 Veterans Blvd.

    He had a hard time staying on the topic. But good talk and everything he said was informational.

    I thought that Steve shared insightful information regarding his perspective to those interested in engaging the industry. He was passionate and realistic. It would have been nice to see a clip or trailer re: his works before he spoke.

    I was amazed. One of the best organized meetup meetings I ever attended. Well organized and well run. Lots of preparation done before the meeting. The attendance was superior. Speaker Steve Scaffidi very inforamtive. The Attendees showed that they appreciated this and I feel there had been a demand for this type meeting for a long time. Distribution very important topic in the community.

    Hats off to Veleka, who put a lot into preparation, and chairing this meeting. Appreciated Veleka and others for helping getting the word out by inviting attendees to this meeting.

    This is the cream of the crop of Louisiana right here.

    NOTE: This is a Filmmakers Producers Meetup. We ask all Actors and Extras to defer participation, discussion, questions & answers, etc. to those Behind the Camera only. We don't want to bombard the participants as this is a place where they need to discuss business, expansion, solve problems, etc. to work out solutions to enhance their business and our Louisiana Film Industry. There is a proper way to get us work in front of the camera. There is a proper protocol to get work.
