Entering the producer game!

Hey Stage 32!!! I'm a 24 year old producer and researcher who is new to the game! I recently got hired by a production company to write comps and I have the opportunity to pretty much take on as much responsibility as I want as long as I'm adding value to the production. Looking to learn from other...

Welcome! I use the writer's cafe through Stage 32 to stay on track. There are cafe's Tuesday thru Saturday. Don't know if they fit your work schedule, but I have found them instrumental in getting myself into a rhythm. You should check them out :)

Cara Rogers

I agree with Gabrielle. Funny thing, once I became accountable to write during the cafes, I do a lot better job of also spending hours writing outside the cafes.

Sherilyn Matthews

I will definitely have to look into the cafe.

Gabrielle Nehring

That's funny, Cara! So do I. I feel like I don't want to be in the same place I was the session before, so I keep at it :)

Cara Rogers

Sherilyn links are posted on the day of events in the Writers' Room lounge. Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 10am to noon PST; Wednesday starts at noon PST; Saturday at 11am PST. Hope you can join us.

Hi Ray, I really like the music you used in "Friday night" Oakwood Station. It gives the short a great vibe.

Hi I'm new here ,

have just finished a horror short film trailer - ENVISION and hoping for a literary agency to represent my work. Interested, my email johnmarkabela@yahoo.com. any feedbacks/critics will be welcome

Max Stravagar

Great trailer it didn't need words or captions to convey what the story is about... fantastic.

JohnMark Abela

Thank you Max much appreciated ! I hope a lot of people will watch this ,

John Ellis

You've got a trailer, so that means the film is complete, yes? You don't need a lit agent, you need a distributor.

JohnMark Abela

Hi John Ellis , thank you for reaching out ! Yes my film is completely ready , If you know a distributor by any chance just let me know thank you as I’m new into this industry , This film was made with passion and love

John Ellis

Sorry, I don't know any distros. One way to connect with some is to submit the film to festivals.
