Happy Friday, Stage 32!
Yesterday, our fearless leader Richard "RB" Botto hosted one of his signature "Ask Me Anything" webinars with a special twist: Quarantine Edition. We had over 1,000 Stage 32 members, both new and old, tune in from all over the world (including practically every state in the U.S., Croatia, Brazil, Scotland, Germany, Poland, China, South Korea, the UK, Canada, Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago, India, South Africa and many more) and ask their questions about the state of the entertainment industry.
All of your amazing questions resulted in over two hours of epic information about the state of film, tv, and digital right now in the current climate. As you have seen already, the entertainment industry is rapidly evolving to meet the standards of our changing world. Since we announced our Stage 32 Screenings initiative to help filmmakers affected by the cancellation of the live screenings at SXSW and now our announcement to add films impacted by the postponement of Tribeca and the cancellation of the 44th Telluride Mountainfilm Fest, we have heard from over 900 filmmakers, executives, 250 industry professionals, and 50 film festival directors wanting to learn more about what we are working on. For the past nine years, Stage 32 has been proud to provide an online space for industry creatives and professionals to learn, connect, and gain opportunities that further their careers - no hand sanitizer required.
No matter where you live or what hat you wear in the industry, you are sure to get inspired and stay motivated during this honest and candid talk about the state of the entertainment industry. Here's just some of what RB covered:
And that's just some of it! There's much more in this jam packed 2 hour session!
All we ask is that you share this webinar either directly or through social media with your fellow film, tv, and digital creatives and professionals that could use a pick-me-up and accurate information to inspire, motivate and lift them up during this uncertain time. As RB says, we're all in this together!
