Take your networking off-line. Find film, TV and theater related meetups near you.
This meetup should be a good spring get together. There are a few projects going on all over the metroplex. New projects are being planned, and parts are being cast in some film productions. We just finished filming on location for Dark Eye Films out in the bush. Very adventurous film genre. Many great and moving scenes captured on film. Some behind the scenes photos have been posted on facebook. I posted a couple of photos from the Fanexpo Comic Con we attended in Dallas last week. Ben Affleck and Jason Mamoa were in attendance for photo sessions with fans. Many other stars were there also. Come on out and get involved. Meet some new people coming out to see our group. See you there.
Mississippi Film Makers should get to know each other. I meet lots of folks at the Movie Theater. Together we can make $5 Tuesdays at the theater a place to get to know other film makers. This is not a paid thing. I'm just doing this as a way to connect local folks. I meet young and old filmmakers who say "I can't find anyone to work with here." I hate excuses. Lets solve the problem together and make new friends. -josh B
Please join us on Tuesday April 17th from 7-9pm at the McCowan Memorial Library in Pitman, NJ. From 7:00-7:30pm, you can network with your fellow screenwriters and filmmakers. Then at 7:30pm, the craft lecture will begin on From Outline to Scenes. After you have finished your outline, how do you decide which scenes really need to be in your film, and equally as important, which ones don't? While your blueprint may change, most writers benefit from fleshing out their outline and creating a scene list. There are many advantages to having a solid story structure in place, especially later at the rewrite stage. Join us and learn how to take your script from outline to scenes and the benefits of doing so. After the lecture there will be time for Q&A.

Please join us on Friday March 16th for the evening showing (Time TBA) of Tomb Raider at the AMC Deptford 8 in Deptford, NJ. After the movie, we will discuss the film over food and drinks at a nearby restaurant. Please note, this theater has reserved seating and often sells out in advance. Please try to purchase your tickets online as soon as possible. This is a great opportunity to network and get to know your fellow writers and filmmakers in a fun and casual setting. Additionally, it is common practice among industry pros to see movies in the theater on opening weekends to gauge the audience's reaction. After the movie we will spend time evaluating the storyline and the movie's overall success, or lack there of. Everyone is welcome, including member's guests. Look for us in the lobby after the movie ends.
Our monthly meetup is on the 14th (Wednesday) of this month. We will be, hopefully, saying bye to the winter climate in favor of springlike temps. Time change will be coming up also. The Academy Awards are taking place and most of us will be attending "viewing parties". How many of us have been involved in the filming and/or production of Academy, Golden Globe, Emmy, or any other "notable" productions? You may be surprised how many local actors or crew members have participated in some of the top ranked awarded films. Lots of new films being produced all over. Hopefully, we will be connected to a large film production in this area soon. You never know.
