Happy Tuesday, Creative Army!
Well, we did it. We made it to the end of 2020. I believe you will welcome me in saying, hasta la vista to this wild year. 2020 has been a challenge, to say the least, but it has not been without a silver lining
or two (or twenty...if we're being optimistic). To wit:
The Stage 32 community has exploded and we have welcomed over 100,000 new members from across the globe in our last nine months alone. Activity, network requests, and postings are at an all time high as well.
Through the launch of Stage 32 Screenings, our efforts to help independent filmmakers who had their live festival screenings impacted by COVID-19, and a variety of other initiatives, we have welcomed another 2,000+ executives and professionals now creating opportunities, teaching or providing development services for Stage 32.
A staggering 3,000+ scripts
have been requested by entertainment industry executives through Stage 32 Script Services
starring Malin Akerman, Bella Thorne, and Alec Baldwin, a film that was discovered and incubated through Stage 32, was released worldwide just a couple of weeks ago. And that was just one of dozens of projects incubated through Stage 32 to hit the big or small screen or get pushed through development in 2020.
And, quite honestly, that's just some of what's been going on around here.
Over the last year, the entire Stage 32 team has been working tirelessly to help you stay connected, creative, motivated, and informed. As always, we are committed to bringing you networking opportunities, education and mentoring from top-level industry executives and professionals, and access to decision-makers around the globe all from the comfort of your own home. Every day, the Stage 32 team is on the phone and communicating with industry professionals. Our goal is to have our finger on the pulse of what's happening in the moment, so you have the tools you need to make moves in your careers.
2020 was not without its faults, but there has never been a better time to take stock of your career and get ready to step on the gas and dominate as we enter into what I am calling The Great Content Gold Rush of 2021.
So I'm inviting you to kick 2020 straight in the ass and enter 2021 on a high by joining me for my final AMA of the year. As part of our Holiday Jump Start, I am thrilled to be hosting the "Ask Me Anything" F@#$ 2020 Edition.
ALL creatives and professionals are welcome. Looking to further your craft? Now's the time. Looking to learn more about the business? We'll get into that. Want to find out what I'm hearing from our roster of execs what's going to be happening industry wide in 2021? Let's F@#$'ing rock.
We're going to get rolling on Monday, December 14th at 1pm PST.
All you have to do is register
and bring your questions and energy and I'll provide a couple of hours of no-holds-barred shop talk to get you ready to crush 2021. Again, all creatives and pros are welcome to join no matter your profession(s), skill level, or geographical location.
As always, registering for my AMA is completely FREE!
And the more the merrier, so do invite any of your fellow creative friends and peers on your social media channels, your email lists, and through your online groups to join us as well. Should any of your contacts not be members of Stage 32 already, you can send them an invite here
So let's come together next Monday at 1 PM PST for some inspiration, motivation, and community. I look forward to spending quality time with you all.

Have a fantastic remainder of your week and get ready to say F@#$ off to 2020 with me on December 14th.
