Stage 32 Meetups : Austin, TX Meetup by Danielle Fradella

Danielle Fradella

Austin, TX Meetup

Anyone interested in doing a meetup in Austin, TX?

Carlin Comm

Yes, but not available until sometime April.

Rob Novak

I'm down. Been trying to drum up interest in this site in my circle of theatre/film folk lately.

Benjamin Alany

Sorry I didn't see this before, but yeah, that would be cool sometime.

Paula Marcenaro Solinger

Most definitely!

Carlin Comm

hey cool, by the time I'm ready, maybe the rest of us will be too :)

Monica Ballard

That would be useful next time I need actors for projects! Keep us posted on the progress!

Benjamin Alany

One event I can recommend in general, that I frequently attend: the Network Austin Mixer. It takes place on the 2nd Wednesday of every month aside from March (due to SXSW), at the Baby A's on N - I35. They usually have some guest speakers, and it tends to be pretty educational, and a good opportunity to meet fellow creative types. In April the guest speakers will be several Casting Directors, I believe. Here is a link to the website: http://networkaustinmixer.com/ Feel free to say hi if you see me there.

Tiffany Heller Wambach

I would definitely be interested in an Austin meetup.

Benjamin Alany

The Network Austin Mixer is happening tonight (Wednesday the 9th) starting at 6pm. Feel free to come out and say hi. I'm pretty easy to spot (custom eyepatch). I believe I posted the location info earlier in the thread. It'll be pretty crowded I bet. If you'd like to do a specific stage 32 meetup sometime, I'm up for that too, provided I'm available at the time.

Kat Albert

Yes for Network Austin, also first Monday of month Indie Film Meet at Stompin Grounds.

Benjamin Alany

I might not make it to the mixer tonight after all, recording for an important VO audition. Go out there if you can though, it's a cool event.

Venus Monique

Hi all - We should put something together for May so everyone has time to arrange their schedules. AustinFilmMeet is on May 5 and the NetworkAustinMixer is on May 14. So, how about Tuesday, May 20th, we meet up? 7pm? Any location ideas? I'm saying Tuesday in case there are folks who can never make the Monday or Thursday meet-ups; this would give them a chance to make some kind of event. If that's a weird day, we can change it :)

Benjamin Alany

Sounds like a fine idea to me, Venus. I'll go ahead and put the date on my calendar for now, and will chime in if I think of a good location. There are some decent places around, certainly. edit: Depending on the numbers, there are a couple of chill spots centrally located in the UT/Hyde park area: Tom's Tabooley near Guadalupe & 30th, or Zen near 35th and Guadalupe.

Kat Albert

Any screenwriters in Austin should join our Facebook group for Austin Screenwriters Group.

Danielle Fradella

I'm down with a meetup on May 20th. I have a studio in South Austin we can use for it so we don't have to worry about weather.

Benjamin Alany

South Austin sounds fine to me, I live in south central myself.

Venus Monique

That sounds great, Danielle! Let's do your studio for the first one. Can you give us the address? So, May 20, say 6:30pm, everyone?

Rob Novak

My wife usually works on Tuesdays, but if anyone knows a good babysitter that doesn't charge too much I'd be in.

Danielle Fradella

6:30 sounds great! The studio address is: 1701 W Ben White Blvd Ste 115 Austin, TX 78704 It's in the same mall as Gold's Gym and in the parking lot behind the Blazer Tag. It has a red door and the signage reads Lingo Interactive.

Rob Novak

I'm actually down on Stassney, so that would be pretty good, I'll check it out, thanks Greg!

Venus Monique

Success :) 1st Stage32 MeetUp - Tue, May 20th, 6:30pm at Lingo Interactive See y'all then!

Benjamin Alany

Cool, sounds like a plan, see you there (and thanks Danielle for the use of the studio).

Gene Church

Absolutely, just post when & where & time.

Rich Parrish

Hi Danielle, would love to, but I'm in dallas right now and plan on making Austin my next move, just don't know when yet. RICH

Danielle Fradella

Just a reminder the meetup is happening tomorrow at 6:30 pm. I've send all commenters a note, but if you're new to the thread here's the info: Date: May 20, 2014 Time: 6:30pm Place: 1701 W Ben White Blvd Suite 115, Austin TX 78704 (in the same mall as Premier High School and Gold's Gym, behind Blazer Tag) Contact #: Danielle at (605) 222 7964 (text is okay) or (512) 330 4182

Kat Albert

Thanks for facilitating, I'll try to drop by early but have another film meet at 7pm.

Venus Monique

See you all there! Anyone have access to a poster board? So we can take our ATX picture and add it to the others on Stage32 :)

Venus Monique

Well, I'm not doing so great on finding the location lol I've been driving around this area for about 15 minutes... Anyone want to throw out some other hints to find the studio?

Danielle Fradella

Sorry the location was so hard to find! I will be giving much better directions next time for newcomers!

Benjamin Alany

Austin Film Meet at the Stomping Grounds is tonight if anyone can make it. I might be late, but I'm planning on stopping by. The open mic portion starts at 7pm.

Matt Joyce

Chiming in here a bit late but I am interested.

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Hi everyone - did anyone take photos at the meetup? If so, send them to me and we'll feature them on Stage 32 :) julie@stage32.com

Benjamin Alany

I don't think there were photos, we can try to take some next time.

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Thanks Benjamin. Keep us posted on the next one - we can send some Stage 32 swag for you guys and feature your meetup!

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Wonderful! Keep us posted!

Benjamin Alany

Austin Film Meet is happening at the Stomping Grounds on SoCo tonight (1st Monday of the month), 6:30 pm start time if anyone cares to attend.

Rich Parrish

Thanks for the info Ben, if I were down there I sure would make an Appearance, receive my applause, say thanks, I love you too and make my exist. Later Bud, RICH

Mary Winborn

I live on Padre Is. , but would like to show up sometime.

Rich Parrish

Hi Leon, Don't really have the answer to that one, since I didn't make that other meeting, of course I sure would like to have, perhaps I'm going to have to move down to Austin. In dallas it's rather stagnant as far as I can tell.

Danielle Fradella

I'd love to have ya'll at the studio again. We're doing a little moving around so I'm not exact on the date, but will see if anyone's interested when the dust settles over here. I do know there's meet ups happening all the time in ATX, especially if you're an actor or model. There are a couple FB pages you can throw a question onto (or here, for that matter!) to see if anything is happening and groups that powwow via meetup.com

Rich Parrish

Leon, do you ever get to dallas, perhaps you can carpool and bring a few creatives and we can discuss starting up some projects together. That is if you up for that. Take care, RICH

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Hi Everyone - if you can plan this meetup in September, I will help support it by sending out an email to all the Stage 32ers in your area. We are doing as many meetups as we can around the world to celebrate Stage 32's 3 year anniversary. I'll keep monitoring the thread :)

Jordan Yanco

Hi all, I'm actually going to be in Austin 9/4-9/9 and would love to meet all of you wherever, whenever. Of course I'll be missing BOTH networking events, but let's make our own!

Jeannette Kremer

I am interested in this event. Please keep me posted. Jeannette

Benjamin Alany

I'll be out of town as of the 24th, but will be around earlier in the month, if a bit busy at times. I'm open to meeting up again though.

Jordan Yanco

If someone can suggest a place near South Congress, I'm up for a Meetup and some accent learning fun!

Jordan Yanco

Are any of the bars on 6th good for meeting up? Maybe tonight or tomorrow?

Rich Parrish

Hi Big Ben, how you been doing, me still have not scored a gig since we last wrote, how about you, get anything down in Austin, still thinking about moving there, nothing is happening for me in dallas. Later, R"ic'h

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Anyone want to take the lead and pick a date/time/place? I will help support it by sending out an email to all our Stage 32 members in the Austin area :) If you can get this done before the end of September, I'll be able to feature your group at our 3 year anniversary party in LA....anyone up for taking the lead?

Benjamin Alany

@Julie: I'll wait a day or 2 to see if someone steps up. If no one does, I'll specify a time/place, and we can go from there.

Danielle Fradella

How does September 20th at 7pm sound (open to 19th, 20th, 26th, or 27th, too if it works better for everyone)? We have clear days in the studio in South Austin and we'd be happy to host. We can have some post-dinner snacks to fuel some conversation.

Benjamin Alany

Thanks for chiming in Danielle! 19th or 20th would be ok for me, I guess I would have an afternoon class on the 20th but it only goes from 11-2, so it should be okay either way. I'll be out of town as of the 24th until the end of the month, so anytime prior to that is good.

Danielle Fradella

@Julie Please let me know if you're capable of putting out that mass email to Austinites.

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Hey Danielle - definitely! Just pick a date/time/place and I'll get it sent right away :) we would love to have our Austin Stage 32ers represented at our 3 year anniversary party in LA!

Danielle Fradella

Let's do the 20th at 7pm. The LINGO Studio address is: 1701 W. Ben White Blvd. Suite #115 We’re located (in South Austin) off Ben White and Banister (Between S. 1st and Manchaca) in the mall behind the Blazer Tag and next to the Gold’s Gym and Premier High School. Find the doors into the mall between Tan, Etc. and Cricket. Our studios are INSIDE the mall behind the red door. I also send you a private message if you've got the time to read it! Thanks!!!

Carlin Comm

Hey Cool! I can make this one :) Excited!

Stage 32 Staff - Julie
