We're relaunching a screenwriter's group in South Charlotte. The main goal is to swap script notes with other writers, but also to connect with creatives, share resources and team up on future projects. We'll try to meet every other Sunday at 1:00 - 2:00 at Caribou Coffee (4327 Park Rd, Charlotte, NC). A few days before the meeting, we'll read a member's script and come to the meeting ready to give notes To keep things easy, we'll limit the scripts to 30 pages, but any kind of script is welcome (half hours, part of hour long scripts or movies, etc).

I thought this email received from Film freeway would be a great description to describe the meet up. Its directly from my email. If you are interested in coming, please keep in touch because I have not been given the actual time of the event. Even though I haven't received an exact time, a formal heads up was still due because my friends on Stage 32 are part of the reason I continue writing... I mean screenwriting.Here's the link, just in case you haven't seen it...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQUPfRtttEU&t=26s + Dear Howard, Congratulations! Atlanta Playhouse Film Festival has updated the Judging Status of your submission Sewa~Cida Thoughts; The Beginning of the End to Selected. Sewa~Cida Thoughts; The Beginning of the End Selected
Hi Stage 32 Writers! We had to skip October because we were at AFF, hopefully we got to run into you at our party there, but we're back with our Hollywood meetups! Come on by Sycamore Tavern on Tuesday the 27th to hang out, meet other writers/creators, talk writing, talk movies, hang out with me (Nick), and Allen Roughton, of our Script Services team, and meet Tiegen Kosiak, an independent producer. We'll also, again, be raffling off winner's choice of Script Coverage Notes or a 30 Minute Consultation on your script. These are really great ways to get your script in front of someone in the industry, as well as get some feedback that always seems to rock people's worlds. So come hang out, bring friends, make friends while you're there, talk movies, debate Oscar contenders, discuss the craft, and so on!
2 film makers with one shared vision - getting a crew together to make movies here in Luzern! As a brief intro, I came to Switzerland from Canada and have lived in Luzern for the past 3 years. Here, I began to actively pursue my passion for directing. So far, I have made several mini films -of which one was screened in a festival in Geneva. Currently, I am submitting my most recent short film finished this summer, to film festivals world wide. Rex Moribe, came to Luzern from Hawai'i. His recent big project was a documentary feature, "Dear Thalia" which follows a 3-year-old homeless girl and her family living on the streets of Hawai'i. It premiered at the 2015 Hawaii International Film Festival with rave reviews and also won a Social Change Award at the Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival. As fate would have, we met here in Luzern and are both motivated to build a local network for anyone who wants to be part of the film making process. If you are interested in* Directing* Writing* Acting* Production* Sound/Music* etc Please join us, we would love to build this group from the ground up with your help.
