Writing is such a solitary business, but most screenwriters I know are not solitary people. We may be artists, but we’re also entertainers, at our best and most natural in the company of other people. I think Stage 32 is a terrific 21st century response to our need for connection, and I’m thrilled to contribute to this wonderful site.Danny Rubin - Screenwriter (Groundhog Day), Harvard professor - Boston, MA
Stage 32 has given me all-access pass to television and movie professionals as well as media members. I can find great places to book my clients for print, radio and podcast interviews and also see what films are currently casting. Stage 32 has been an extraordinarily valuable tool in helping me do my job. Plus, it is always great to network with others who understand this challenging industry.Lynette Carrington - President, Carrington Entertainment - Scottsdale, Arizona
The enterprising Richard Botto and Curt Blakeney approached me about doing a blog for their new social media for industry professionals Web site, Stage32.com. I checked out their site and it looked awesome. One thing led to another and we ended up publishing the lengthy Foreword to the hardcover issue of Sideways in a well-received 6-part serialization titled, "My Life on Spec: the Writing of 'Sideways'." It was a big hit with their many members thanks mostly to Richard's and Curt's well-written introduction, editorial skills and promotional acumen. Stage32.com deserves to become the Facebook of the entertainment industry!Rex Pickett - author (Sideways), screenwriter, playwright - Santa Monica, CA
With the publication of my novel, THE SAFETY EXPERT, I was asked to pen a short blog series for Stage32. Thus was my introduction to the site and the terrific people who run it. Imagine my greater surprise that, during the run of the blog, I found myself as enamored by the interaction from the Stage32 members as the actual writing experience. An entirely new and unexpected voice was injected into the story that I found stimulating as hell. I'm very grateful to RB for my entire Stage32 experience and look forward to being a contributor to the ever growing network.Doug Richardson - screenwriter (Die Hard 2, Bad Boys, Money Train, Hostage), novelist (The Safety Expert) - Los Angeles, California
Guys, bless you for the site! Shooting a short film ("Reduction") tomorrow and the crew are all off Stage 32!Matt E Hudson - Director, producer, screenwriter and script supervisor - Director, producer, screenwriter and script supervisor
As co-founder of Twitter's #Scriptchat, with thousands of screenwriters in our community, I understand the power of networking. Like most creatives, I had all the regular social media accounts, but none truly met my needs. LinkedIn was more of a place to put my freelance resume. Facebook kept my old college buddies and high school friends informed, but let's face it, they didn't care about the specifics of my writing career or whether I needed a DP for a short film project. Stage 32 allowed me to connect with the specific group of people I needed to find. I recently posted my short film project, and within 24 hours had several actors messaging me, wanting to be considered for roles...Jeanne Veillette Bowerman - screenwriter, founder Scriptchat - New York, New York
Stage 32 has allowed me to present my past and current film projects to a diverse and qualified forum of entertainment professionals. As a result of posting my current film project on Stage 32, I've been contacted by numerous people (talent and crew) who appreciate the concept and are interested in helping me bring it to fruition.Angelo Bell - Writer/Director/Producer - Los Angeles, California
Stage32 has contributed a huge amount to my professional career. I have met some amazing people who are always so warm and friendly. It's a great place to swap ideas, collaborate with other professionals or just have a chat with likeminded folk.
I have started a short film project completely through Stage32 members. Some of the crew I am using I have met here, and the advice and support from everyone has been truly astonishing. There is no doubt that without Stage32 I wouldn't be in the position I am in right now.
I've gone from the dream of directing a new short film to actually receiving full funding from a member on Stage32. The film is now targeted for the festival circuit- It's a great achievement that's all happened because of Stage32.Stephen Richard Melling - director, director of photography - Manchester, United Kingdom
