Looking forward to this and meeting other like-minded people. Yeah!!

David A. Bromley

I am in Michigan right now! Dang it, I have been waiting for something like this too!

The Networking & Short Films event on May 14th (North Hollywood) is going to be amazing. We already have 65 RSVPs (It's cross posted to more places than meetup), so it's definitely one of the most popular events. If you haven't come to a MoviePals event in-awhile or ever before, this is the one to attend. This event has a specific itinerary which includes showing short films. I still have some slots left and if any of you have a project, trailer or short film they would like us to show. Please send me an e-mail directly to solomon@moviepals.com or message me through meetup. We can play most digital formats and also blue-ray DVD etc.

Bree Harper

Is there anyway to add this to our calendars I really want to make sure that I don't miss this

Wendy Joseph

Have a little film noir short I'd like to get produced. Will discuss it with the group. Also am looking for actors for an informal reading of a WWII screenplay.

Patty Sherman

Had planned to go and bring my boyfriend who did his first storyboard (for a feature this year) but an emergency came up, hope to attend this group at their next meeting. Have a great time, Patty Sherman and Bob Kathman
