Stage32 helps filmmakers come together and this will be a great opportunity as the film 108 Stitches was made by several Stage32 members on the production side as well as the acting. 108 Stitches, directed by recent blog writer David Rountree , is opening in theaters that week and as a celebration of Stage32's three year anniversary, we will have a great meet and greet followed by the movie. LOCATION: THE PF CHANG'S (OUTDOOR LARGE PATIO) IN BURBANK. (OFFICIAL START TIME IS STILL TO BE DETERMINED BASED OFF OF THE FILM START TIME which is still TBA). After the meet-up, the members will be able to watch the movie "108 Stitches" at the AMC8 theater next to the restaurant. We are currently working on getting discount tickets for Stage 32 members. Many of the Producers, top actors, and Emmy winning Sound and Production crew members will be in attendance for your networking purposes (I will provide a more detailed list as I get confirmation). This is a great chance to network with top people who could help with your projects or hire you for crew or as an actor. Director David Rountree will also be in attendance. Rountree has four films now slated over the next 3 years. PF CHANG'S 201 E Magnolia Blvd #281, Burbank, CA 91502 THEATER: AMC 8 (about 200 feet away from PF Chang's) 201 E Magnolia Blvd #345, Burbank, CA 91502 MORE DETAILS TO COME ORIGINAL POST INFO: I am organizing a new Meet-Up group in Los Angeles (Burbank) on September 15 or 16 which will be a great networking and inspirational opportunity for the Stage 32 members/filmmakers. Still working on the details, but it will be a great group with real networking opportunities. Stage 32 member David Rountree , who has produced 5 features and directed 4, recently produced/directed the feature film 108 Stitches, which opens in theaters on September 12. The film, which will open in over 15 major cities and all of the VOD outlets, was created on a lower budget, which will hopefully be inspiring for all of the independent filmmakers and actors. You will be able to NETWORK with each other as well as meet several members of the cast and crew of the film including Emmy Award and Golden Reel winner Solange Schwalbe (over 150 major studio films) who handled all of the sound. Several producers, writers, and name actors from the film will be also be in attendance. At the conclusion of the meet-up, the group will get to see the movie. I am still working on the details and will keep the post updated.

Christina Horgan

I would just like to add what a great time I had last night, and that the Stage 32 members are among the nicest people I have met anywhere. It was so nice to meet everyone in person and put faces with names. The whole evening was a great experience. Thank you again, David, for hosting this delightfully enjoyable evening, and thank you Richard Botto for creating Stage 32! It was so much fun working on the movie "108 Stitches" in post sound, watching it in a large box office theater among new people was an amazing experience, but hearing the laughter and emotional reactions from everyone was the greatest experience of all. Congratulations David Rountree, Jeff and Jake Katofsky, and to the entire cast and crew on a job well done! What an incredible journey and experience to have shared with all of you.

Serita Stevens

Enjoyed the movie and meeting everyone - esp David and Richard. Looking forward to the stills and press release so that I can do a review for L A Splash, one of the places that I write for.

Laura Cook

Fun time last night and nice meeting many of you! Thanks David and all involved! Fun movie with heart, great actors and crew! Congratulations!

Phil Condit

Last night was a great venue for creating a physical meetup of Stage 32. Stage 32 is now more of an entity and a resource I can use going forward. Prior to last night it was just a group I was a member of. David's film was terrific! I'm not saying it broke new ground, but it played what it was perfectly and Laura hit the nail on the head - it has great heart. I recommend it to anyone who wants to come out of a theater feeling better than when they went in. And for a LOW budget film, that is awesome. Hats off to David and his fabulous cast. They nailed it!

Robert Sherry

I already wrote this directly on Mandy's page, but I wanted to thank David, Mandy, and of course RB for providing the wonderful opportunity of the meetup/premiere of 108 stitches. It was great getting to meet many of you and I look forward to working with many of you in the future, David included. Great job and congrats on the movie! It's absolutely amazing what can be accomplished with a low budget, little time, but an amazing group of people/cast. Looking forward to future work from Psycho Rock Productions and David in general; I'm also looking forward to future meetups! Thanks again! :-)

Tim Beck

Sorry I couldn't make it last night, as I was composing for a web series. Feel free to message me and connect. I'd be happy to meet with any one of you. Best of luck to '108 Stitches' in the future!

Kirk Ryde

Thanks David, Mandy and Richard for the wonderful event yesterday. It was a real pleasure to meet everyone - the film was a lot of fun to watch and the Q&A afterward was extremely informative - it's amazing what was accomplished with 108 Stitches and I wish everyone involved continued success!

Anna-Sophie Keller

I can't express enough how much I enjoyed meeting everyone yesterday. So much talent and wisdom and fun - it was all too wonderful. I'm already pitching 108 Stitches to everyone I know! It was incredible hearing about everyone's dedication and passion for the project, and it really shows. I'm still in awe that this film was shot in only about two weeks! Thanks, David, Mandy, Richard, and everyone else for this event and, also, for just being plain awesome! I'm looking forward to seeing and connecting with everyone again in the future :)

David Rountree

Thank you to everyone who came to the Meet-up/movie screening, including Richard Botto (RB), the CEO and Founder of Stage32! The group was fantastic and lots of networking was able to happen. We are going to send out a personal email to everyone who attended with the Stage32 links to those who were there. It will allow you to re-put a name and face to those you met. Thanks to everyone again as all support is greatly appreciated. Best, David

Serita Stevens

Hi, David - looking forward to those pix and press release so that I can write up the article. Please put 108 stitches in subject line so it doesn't get overlooked. xx

Amanda Nevarez

I was filming for the past two weeks. Sorry to have missed this. How was it?!

Robert Sherry

It was pretty frickin' awesome! No worries on missing it though, congrats on the filming! :-)

Amanda Nevarez

I hope to be able to meet you all another day. BTW, if anyone needs a 1st AD, I'm available right now! :)

Robert Sherry

Same here! Well, there is a 3-year anniversary meetup tonight at 8:30 in Hollywood, so if you're able, you could swing by there and meet everyone! :-)

Amanda Nevarez

Really? Send me details please!

Serita Stevens

Write to and get your name on rap list

Amanda Nevarez

I had a great time last night! Wish i would have met more of you! Thanks for letting me know about this.

Robert Sherry

Hi Amanda! I'm glad you had such a great time! Yeah, there were probably a few hundred people there, and I definitely didn't get to meet everyone which includes you. :-( Maybe next time, or maybe we can all plan out a meetup or something, because there were plenty of people I would have liked to have met but never had the opportunity to. Thanks for going, and you're welcome! :-)
