Success Stories: MAY'7 After My First Week at Stage32

Elisabeth Meier

After My First Week at Stage32

Okay, I think it is now 8 or 9 days ago that I joined stage32. Time for a short resume as it was tough and great at the same time to join this magic witch circle of creative filmmakers all over our wonderful blue planet. My first experience: I immediately discovered the lounge to me where everyone can start a new discussion and ask what ever weighs heavy on his/her mind. Funny is to see what comes out the longer such a post is discussed. Already with introducing myself I got a request from a film director for my short screenplays by the first comment. (Check it: https://www.stage32.com/lounge/introduce_yourself/Screenwriting-Girl) - Quite a start here! But the cooler is: through my comments to many discussions I got more requests from directors who are interested in my scripts! =) - Yep, true story! By email like: Hey, I just read your post and totally agree, checked your loglines, you have a style I like, please send me this or that. Even more, one director sent me a personal link to his new film (with a keyword) and asked me for feedback and review which I gave him of course what made him happy as I wrote a proper real 1 page review which was more he obviously expected, because he then wrote me a long email of appreciation which was more than I respected and so I won a new friend now and we never heard of each other before. :)) Then out of the blue I was asked by a wonderful filmmaker from NYC who said he would live at the Upper East Side - what I will have to check my next time in New York ;-) as this is a great place to live as we all know - to join him as a co-writer. Sounds cool? Yes! New experience to me, we will see whether this will work or not, but so far it sounds and feels great. So, why am I posting this? Just to share what is possible on stage32 within only a few days and without living in Hollywood. But I'm also working on living in California one day as I supplied for the Green Card Lottery and will get the result this month. Many words just to say: I want to thank all of you who welcomed me in such a nice way as a fellow screenwriter and who admit me to the magic circle. It's great to be with you. Special thanks to: stage32 and RB :)) Love, Elisabeth

This is amazing, Elisabeth! It's so great you're really using the site to its full potential. All the best to you as you continue to interact in this community :)

Elisabeth Meier

Thank you, Shannon. Yes, it was really interesting how much everything you do here is read and leads to feedback. I'm not only grateful for this network but also for the internet which makes it all possible and the world smaller somehow. So, I think I can't live without it anymore - at least not businesswise. All the best for you too! :)

David Levy

Grent news Elisabeth! Just shows the more one interacts the more one will notice the great knowledge you have.

Elisabeth Meier

Yes, David, exactly and I enjoy that the spent energy pays out.

Pete Stone

Cool story, connecting is great and stregnth of our time

Elisabeth Meier

True, Pete. I shared it to show that with interacting you can reach fast results which lead to more. It's a little like the old Nike slogan 'Just do it' and it goes on. So, now after this post, I suddenly get daily requests for reviews and I am no reviewer at all. I'm here to pitch and sell my screenplays and get them produced. On the other hand watching other people's stuff and giving proper reviews leads to more connections and I learn a lot.

Dawson Howard

Congratulations Elisabeth. It is stories like yours that give everybody hope and belief that we all have a chance. Well done and keep us posted on what eventuates.

Elisabeth Meier

Thank you so much, Dawson. I surely will report, but maybe not weekly. You never know. Stage32 seems to work very fast what I enjoy very much. We will see.

Rob Wallace

You have a solid concept of Stage-32. Keep on keepin' on.

Elisabeth Meier

Thanks, Rob. :))

Elisabeth Meier

Thank you Brandi, I just listened to your music and love it. Wish you had composed or posted more pieces with the flute as the lead. :)

Chris Melancon

I just joined up 5 minutes ago. Lol

Rob Kelly

very good

Elisabeth Meier

Great, Brandi, that would be cool. It's quite a while ago that I played my flute as it is not allowed in my apartment. Am looking for a new home now. Look forward to your compositions. :)

Elisabeth Meier

@Rob Kelly: thanks. Oh boy, you have a NICE photo to welcome visitors on your profile.... :)) - but great work.

Elisabeth Meier

Brandi, just email me. :) that was simpler. LOL

Elisabeth Meier

@Steven Va bene. But who is Sharon? :)

Elisabeth Meier

Wow, folks. That sounds like a job offer at the Upper Eastside in NYC, doesn't it?

Elisabeth Meier

Well, looks as if my stage32 success story continued in its second week. What can I say? @Steven Thanks for posting it publicly as I probably hadn't believed it via email. We will have to discuss this, but please personal and in private emails then. What a cool story!

Lina Jones

Thanks for sharing!

Laura Cross

Congrats on your successes. Wishing you all the best ; ))

Elisabeth Meier

Thank you Laura!

Deaver Brown

Above all a very friendly generous group of people. I am new and enjoy it all. Download our Simply Books APP at the Apple Store and then download for free Daniel Goleman's Harvard Business Review article, Emotional Intelligence based on his best seller. A 45-60 audiobook. This group is adept at this but even great musicians practice rigorously....

Charles G. Masi

EM, just noticed your comment about not being allowed to play your FLUTE in your apartment! Makes me grateful for my neighbors, who agreed to let me practice drums between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. Hope you find better digs, soon.

Lawrence R. Kotkin

Elisabeth, as much as you feel Stage32 set you up for the contact, you might remind yourself that you have talent. I'm pleased for you that you've had the chance to showcase. Knock em dead.. or is that "break a pencil?"

Michael J Smyth

welcome to Stage 32 Elisabeth and glad to see things are already happening. Did live in NY for a few years and I'm a bit biased but its a fantastic place to be.

Elisabeth Meier

Thank you Edward! Charles, yes I am looking for quite a long time, but my cat isn't either welcome everywhere what makes it really difficult... thanks for wishing me luck. :) Lawrence, thanks for these nice words and encouraging me. It is true, the most I am and have to be grateful for my talent. Michael, thank you. But I yet don't know if I will go there. California is more my place as it is sunny, warm, with long beaches, waves to surf and houses with a view over the ocean.

Lawrence R. Kotkin

Elisabeth, I'll be right there.

Elisabeth Meier

You mean you could help somehow?

Tressa Smiley

welcome! peace

Lawrence R. Kotkin

Elisabeth, no, I just want to be in California. Helping is not out of the question, should it happen.

Elisabeth Meier

I see. Will email you when I'm there... :)

Michael J Smyth

i understand the attraction of the warm sunny place :)
