Hi! Welcome!!! Collaborations are definitely the key!
Hey, Melissa Flores! My name is Kay, I'm the Community Manager here at Stage 32. Nice to meet you! What are you working on? Are you back on set yet?
I’m sure you’ve already discovered the Screenwriting Lounge (https://www.stage32.com/lounge/screenwriting), but definitely reach out on the Acting Lounge (https://www.stage32.com/lounge/acting) for insight into characters, dialogue, and even when you want to generate interest in a virtual table read!
There is also a post in the Filmmaking Lounge that is great for networking and getting to know members through "The Film That Lit Your Fuse". I'd love for you to jump in on the conversation! https://www.stage32.com/lounge/directing/The-Film-That-Lit-Your-Fuse
Keep in mind that these lounges are like the VIP Filmmaker's Lounges at Film Festivals, so this is where you can meet the people doing the work, get advice on anything you're working on, and/or give back to those who may need advice. We're a very supportive and encouraging community! I think you'd also enjoy my intro blog post on how to engage with the Stage32 Community:
Enjoy exploring the lounges, and don't forget to comment and respond to others’ posts, too! It's the best way to really connect! And, of course, feel free to reach out at any time.
