Introduce Yourself : Vice President and Production Manager by Amber MacPherson

Amber MacPherson

Vice President and Production Manager

Hello Stage 32!

I've been a member for some time, but have never introduced myself and in an effort to make better use of this site, I will do so today.

I am one-half of Makeshift Film Group, LLC, (www.makeshiftfilmgroup.com) a newerColorado-based production company. We are working on putting together our first feature film, an homage/parody of mid-70's to early 90's science fiction and science fantasy called Thunder Lord. It can be envisioned as Conan the Barbarian in Space, with comedic elements akin to Deadpool.

It's a pretty ambitious first feature, so we're trying to shoot a shorter proof of concept set in the same world to use to raise awareness of and money for the feature. We're looking to crowdfund that this June and make it back to AFM this fall.

Personally, I am new to film. My day job is in science and in winter I teach skiing on the weekends. I'm also a photographer, aspiring writer, runner, and am trying to teach my self Python. I'm kinda all over the place, to be honest.

I've been trying to teach myself to PM this project with varying degrees of success, so if anyone has any tips for a new PM, I'd love to hear them.

Where do you teach skiing? I think we need to send up a Skier's Lounge, for literary snowbunnies!

Amber MacPherson

Eldora! I would visit a skiers lounge. Wonder how many skiers we have here?

Never skied in Colorado... Have you skied Jackson or Targhee?

Welcome Amber! Good luck in your endeavors and enjoy Stage 32! Michelle Ullman works in theater/film in Colorado, could be a good connection for you!

Gary, not yet unfortunately. I've been to Jackson Hole, but it was in the summer.

Cherelynn, Thanks for the tip!
