Stage 32 Meetups : Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Michigan. by Clifford McKinney

Clifford McKinney

Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Michigan.

I'd like get a regular networking group together in the area. I know there are a lot of talented people in around town. Let's put that creativity to use. So here are the official meeting details September 12, 4pm-7pm Antonio's Cucina Italiana 2220 N Canton Center Rd Canton, MI 48187

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Hey Clifford - do a search in the lounge for Ann Arbor and see who comes up to reach out to them and point them to this thread. Also, here's a quick search for Detroit discussions and a Stage 32 meetup they did: https://www.stage32.com/lounge/search?query=detroit%2C+mi

Clifford McKinney

I'm ok with getting together with people in the rest of south east michigan too.

Ava Miller

I'm in Detroit and would love to be part of this.

Clifford McKinney

Let's set a specific date in September. I would think that a Friday evening or Saturday afternoon would be best. Perhaps the 12th or 13th?

Clifford McKinney

Any suggestions on a location?

Angel Matheson

I hope you can get one together. If I am in Michigan I would join.

Ava Miller

Either date works fine for me.

Amanda Toney

When you guys meet up, don't forget to take a picture and help celebrate Stage 32's 3 year anniversary! https://www.stage32.com/blog/Stage-32-is-Celebrating-3-Years-Come-Celebr...

Natasha Ellis

Hey i am in Detroit and would love to attend as well. when and where? so stoked:)

Brian G. Walsh

If possible, I'd like to attend. Day and time is important, however, due to commitments I must keep. Please let me know what the options are. I really want to be a part of this if at all possible. Thank you, Clifford, for trying to get this going.

Virginia Shine

I'm in Toledo, depending on the day I would love to meet up for this, thanks Clifford.

Terri Partyka

Would love to meet up with everyone. The 12th works for me. Booked for the 13th though.

Clifford McKinney

Since I have only input for one specific date I say we set it up for the 12th. After talking with friends of mine I will pick Antonio's Cucina Italiana in Canton, Michigan as our meeting location. I figure it is a little closer to those of you in the Detroit area than driving all the way to Ann Arbor. So here are the official meeting details September 12, 4pm-7pm Antonio's Cucina Italiana 2220 N Canton Center Rd Canton, MI 48187

Virginia Shine

Canton is a good location for me I will try to make it up, although maybe on the later end of the timeframe.

Shane M Wheeler

I'll see about taking the 12th off to make the meet up.

Nick Hrycyk

I'll be there.

Andrea Daniel

Good morning, everybody. I think it's a great idea to have a regular networking group. However, Cliff, I'm not available on the 12th, but I'll keep my eyes open for Meetups in the future. Thanks for thinking of this.

Philip Wells

Has there been a date and time set. I have not seen any thing yet and I go this message on the 26 th .....

Angel Matheson

I'm happy to see that the Detroit area meet up is going to happen. I wish I was going to be in town for that.

Steve MacLaren

I would love to attend please keep me informed on this.

Elijah Langdon Brown

I am interested! How about Jolly Pumpkin brewery? Great craft beer right downtown ;) Another god dt option is Isolita. Tappas style dining, high quality, very interesting cocktails and some very nice rooms downstairs.

Clifford McKinney

I have the location date and time posted in the comments above. I have also attached them to the original post. Hope to see as many of you there as can get there.

Sebastian Butler II

I'll try to make it to this

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Remember to take pictures holding a stage 32 Ann Arbor sign and email them to me so we can post them at our three-year anniversary party in LA. Julie@stage32.com

Steve MacLaren

I'll see you there.

Nick Hrycyk

I'm in!

Natasha Ellis

I'm so there cant wait

Brian G. Walsh

I'm going to try to make it, but it might not be possible. I have a commitment early that afternoon and I don't know how long I'll be tied up. I'd love to meet all of you in person. I've been thinking of a web anthology series, and two of the short stories from my Anthology book that was recently published as a Kindle book on Amazon were originally short scripts intended for just that purpose: http://www.amazon.com/No-Place-Mercy-Eclectic-Anthology-ebook/dp/B00MT4C...

Virginia Shine

I'm in

Dianne Fowler

Count me in too.

Terri Partyka

I'm pretty sure I can make it :)

Frank A. Simasko

I will be there ...... I was thinking (if anyone is listening) ....... that we should "Get Organized" and start local Stage 32 Chapters .... so there can be "Go To" people in particular area when projects are being planned ........ "Is anyone Listening " What do yo think

Sebastian Butler II

mr. frank, that's a cool idea.

Rod Merten

Very good idea. Unfortunately I will be out of town right then, but would be very interested in future events.

Big Ron Lyons

Clifford, I will be there, and exciting to meet everyone in person.

Keyna Reynolds

I'll be there with bells on! Looking forward to it! :)

Dana Lee

I have it listed on my agenda to be there! Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Jonathan Johnson

I plan to be there. Looking forward to connecting and meeting new faces.

Ken Germaine

I'll be there.

Ken Germaine

info says Friday 9/12, and also says 9/13, please confirm.

Sebastian Butler II

where you see that? just curious

Ken Germaine

The heading from stage 32 says "Canton Mi area Stage 32 Meetup - Sat 9/13 RSVP now" I recieved this @ 11.12 A.M. today

Virginia Shine

Oh no how confusing! I'm assuming Friday unless Clifford posts differently, he set this up

Sebastian Butler II

im hoping it's friday because I can't make it on Saturday

Virginia Shine

Just got an updated email invite with the corrected Friday date not sure how to RSVP Stage 32 needs an easier way to have an event :-)

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Hi Everyone!!*** it is definitely Friday September 12- it was an honest mistake I made when I sent out the email. I'm sorry!

Sebastian Butler II

I didn't get the RSVP invite or e-mail. did I miss something? I would like to come. what is the attire?

Michelle Smolarski

How do you RSVP to this event?

Shane M Wheeler

Planning on being there.

Clifford McKinney

Definitely Friday the 12th

Clifford McKinney

As far as attire it is informal, but remember you are trying to make a good first impression with people.

Virginia Shine

Hope to make it up there by 5 if I can get on the road early, looking forward to it!

Michelle Larsosa

I plan to be there!

Nick Hrycyk

Hey Clif, if people start judging me by my clothes instead of my work, time to find a new line of work!

Andrea Daniel

Unfortunately, I can't make it. But, please post pics, and and any follow-up info that comes as a result. Great idea, by the way.

Kevin Mattson

RSVP... ;)

Yasmine Yassie Hawkes

RSVP! for 2

Michelle Larsosa

RSVP!

Virginia Shine

RSVP

Angel Matheson

There should be an rsvp section on the invitation. I hope you all have fun.

Sebastian Butler II

RVSP for 1. And, what invite?

Steve MacLaren

RSVP for one

Terri Partyka

RSVP for 1 here, too.

Shane M Wheeler

RSVP+1

Steve MacLaren

Unfortunately I will be late or not showing I apologize if I don't show vehicle problems occurred

Angel Matheson

I don't know how it is done as I have not set up a meet up but typically the organizer sets up and invite and people will accept the invite. It makes it cleaner. Then the organizer is the only one who gets the rsvps but on the page others can see who is going . Have fun tonight

Clifford McKinney

Thanks to everyone that came out, we had an awesome showing.

Sebastian Butler II

thanks for the meeg. look forward to more things like this

Virginia Shine

It was great meeting everyone! Awesome turnout

Terri Partyka

Michelle Smolarski

I wasn't able to come. What did I miss?

Jeffrey Alexander Hamilton

Clifford, first I want to say thank you for putting this together. Networking is so essential for this business. I do need to point out that in my email I received two different dates: Friday 9/12 and Sat 9/13. We'll just go forward from here of course. Hope it went well. When will the next one be?

Keyna Reynolds

Awesome night! Great meeting all that could make it! :)

Kevin Mattson

It was a pleasure meeting everyone! I had a real good time meeting and talking with so many talented Stage 32 members! I wish we had more time. I will look forward to the next Stage 32 event! Hey, when/where will the pictures be posted?

Clifford McKinney

Networking tonight if anyone missed the new announcement

Angel Matheson

I would like to get together after the 20th if poosible.

Michelle Smolarski

Ok! Let's meet! What would you like to discuss?

Angel Matheson

When I get back to Michigan I am going to set something up to make our networking easier to manage. Michelle I am not sure if you were talking to Me or Clifford. I want to know what other people are working on. I am just now producing my first film. I would be happy to read what you have or at least discuss it with you.

Michelle Smolarski

Mainly you but I guess him Too now that you mention it.

Angel Matheson

Clifford has set up two meetups. I hope he can arrange another one when I get back. It is good to connect with other people trying to make a film industry in Detroit.
