Hey Anna! I'm looking more for production funds than more projects! ;-) But I'll always be open to hearing anything! ;-) Wish you could be there, too! ;-)

Philip Sedgwick

Come on down. Central location. Easy parking. Fun to be had. People to meet. It will be a blast.

Heather Hale

Yay Philip! ;-)

Heather Hale

You and me both, Anna! ;-)

Heather Hale

Yes, Clint! ;-) Show up and have a great time! ;-) How's that?

Philip Sedgwick

I second that... and let others know, too. It will be great. Can you think of anything better than meeting other film creatives?

Samantha Mann

Quick question, does it cost money to attend it? I'd love to come.

Heather Hale

Samantha - just whatever you order, parking - whatever. But we're not charging anything, no. Love to have you join us! ;-)

Heather Hale

Anna - Yes, feel free to bring log lines ;-)

Philip Sedgwick

Come on, come all. You never know who you might meet!

Ray C. Merrill

I'm looking forward to it.

Samantha Mann

So will this event be kind of semi-formal? Just wondering what to expect, never been to anything like it before. :)

Victor Sunstar

Lookin FWD !

Heather Hale

In Tucson? ;-) Samantha. Nah... ;-) We'll be lucky if everyone's not in shorts and sandals! ;-) Just come as you are! ;-) Great, Ray!

Heather Hale

Yay Victor! ;-)

Natalie Wright

I'll be there! Will be nice to meet you all

Sonia Apodaca-Harms

Heather, I pushed this info through a bunch of Tucson/SoAZ industry groups on Facebook.

Heather Hale

Yay Natalie! Can't wait to meet you! ;-)

Heather Hale

Awesome, thank you Sonia! The more the merrier! Can't wait to see ya'll there! ;-)

Samantha Mann

Can't wait to meet everyone

Heather Hale

Yay, Samantha! Looking forward to it! ;-)

Lorena Mcneill

Looking quite forward to seeing everyone!

Sonia Apodaca-Harms

Heather, do you think an 18-year-old can attend?

Heather Hale

Sonia, I can't say for 100% sure but my GUESS is yes, It's a bar in a hotel so I'm sure minors are in there often. I have no problem with it - and the manager is a former film student and really game for us to do this - so as long as the minor sticks to soft drinks ;-) I think it'll be fine! ;-)

Philip Sedgwick

It is a bar in a hotel. Generally in AZ a minor with adults is no problem... given what they intend to consume.

Keith Lopez

Sounds awesome, I look forward to meeting and seeing all there:) Thank you Heather...

Heather Hale

Thanks Keith! We'll look forward to meeting you, too! ;-)

Ray C. Merrill

See you there Keith.

Yaedi Elizabeth Ignatow

Hey Heather, great that you pulled this together. I am going to try and make it!

Steve Anderson

See ya there! :)

Philip Sedgwick

Yea! The numbers are growing!! It will be a blast.

Heather Hale

Yay, Yaedi! Yay Steve! Who hoo! And bless you, Philip, you Screenwriting Stud! ;-) I think UofA, PCCC and the Tucson Film Commission are getting the word out, too. So... ;-) HOPEFULLY ;-) we'll have a nice turnout - even if it's small - all the better to get to know those who do come out and are serious! ;-) It's what we're here for, right? Meet and greet, network and get those cameras rolling! ;-) Can't wait! ;-)

Philip Sedgwick

Seems to me there are a heap of unconnected pockets of film making talent in the Ole Pueblo. What a perfect time for creative convergence! Here's to a great meetings of many minds and fabulous melding to follow!!!

Philip Sedgwick

Hey Gang!! I bought some labels that I'm going print to read Stage 32. I'll make a label for anyone here who said they'll be there. Now if you want a special job title under your name, other than what you have as title on the site here, e-mail me: philip@philipcsedgwick.com That way, we'll have a special name tag waiting for you. If you're like me, no one can read my handwriting, even if it's printing.

Heather Hale

Ah, you're awesome, Philip! THANK YOU! :-) Amanda (from Stage 32) said she'd send some Stage 32 Swag, too! ;-) For our pic! ;-) Don't know what it'll be ;-) but hopefully it'll be here in time! ;-) Also, Chris, the Manager from the Loft Hotel (WXYZ Lounge) is a filmmaker as well! ;-) So he's called to confirm - excited about the event! I couldn't give him a number. Don't know if we'll have 13 or 30 or 300! ;-) It's out on a lot of Facebook groups (as well as the outlets mentioned above) but whatever the size of the group, it'll be a great one! And people we're all looking forward to working with in the NEAR future! ;-) Can't wait! ;-) See ya'll in a couple days in the REEL world! ;-)

Philip Sedgwick

I love SWAG! I'll bring extra labels. Will make up a label for Chris (would you e-mail me his info... name, title?) All you Tucsonans, come one, come all. Spread the word. Meet some new contacts. Forget about Odile! A little rain's good for you.

Heather Hale

We got SCHWAG! ;-) Philip, we'll have to make sure you're first in line for a t-shirt and/or a baseball cap! ;-) Maybe we'll have to come up with some fun games to give away the schwag as prizes?! ;-) Anyway, can't wait to see ya'll tomorrow night, come rain or come shine! ;-)

Philip Sedgwick

Okay hermits of the Old Pueblo, Odile missed us to the east. So there's no excuse for not showing up tonight. As for games, thinking cap is on. It'll be a fun night, that's for sure.

Philip Sedgwick

And a great time was had by all!

Steve Anderson

Very nice gathering. :)

Heather Hale

Thanks for coming you guys! We hardly got to chat at all! ;-) But then, we know each other! And we all met lots of new people! Maybe we'll try to do another gathering in a couple months? ;-)

Philip Sedgwick

I think another event in the future would be great. Maybe January when everyone is fighting off post-holiday blues. Met lots of new folks and made some great connections and certainly, new friendships were fostered as well. I know we didn't get to chat much. Fortunately, we have the secret Batwoman line of comms available to us! Slept in my Stage 32 t-shirt last night! Great night. Stage 32 does it again in bringing folks together.

Heather Hale

Philip - Get the pics to Amanda if you can - especially the ones with Stage 32 Schwag ;-) so she can put those in her powerpoint for the big LA Party!

Philip Sedgwick

Sent them to Julia today!

Ray C. Merrill

It was a great time, thanks Stage 32, and Heather and Philip for making it happen.

Philip Sedgwick

Good to see you there, Ray!

Ray C. Merrill

Likewise Philip, although I never got a chance to say hi to Heather, whenever I looked her way the crowd was 20 people deep, maybe next time.

Philip Sedgwick

She's just a magnet, isn't she? There's an idea... Stage 32 magnets.

Heather Hale

LOL! Ray! I saw you a couple of times and wanted to say "Hi" but in the carousel of the night - we never connected! I'm so sorry! Happened with lots of people, I'm sure! ;-) Next time for sure! ;-)

Victor Sunstar

It twaz indeed and in need a wonderfull meet up But... What's that you say ? I couldn't hear youuuuuuuuuuu :-)

Ray C. Merrill

I got a swell label, a bunch of new friends and business contacts so it wasn't a complete loss of a night Heather.

Lorena Mcneill
