Come and meet Ben Yennie, The Guerrilla Rep (theguerrillarep.com) who will present a sneak preview, highlights of his new report that includes data and research on the film industry so that you can be fully armed with the facts: Innovation in Funding, Technology, and Transparency in the Film Industry: A data-driven approach https://www.meetup.com/Bay-Are...

Please join us on Tuesday May 9th from 7pm-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 Prewriting. Most professional screenwriters spend a significant amount of time thinking about their concept, characters, plot and theme before they even begin writing. From mind mapping to outlining, from treatments to beginning with the pitch, we will explore the different processes of prewriting and their potential benefits. After the lecture there will be time for Q&A.
WHY DO YOU NETWORK? Like most people, are you bad at networking or nervous about walking into a roomful of strangers? Do you often wonder why no one returns your calls or follows up with you after a "Networking Event"? Join us in any of our cities for "The Art of Active Networking", and let's change everything you believe about Networking! We’ll show you how to build powerful relationships through giving using our method of #MyGive4 The Art of Active Networking is a worldwide networking group 100% focused on helping you to do better by asking the question, "How can I help you do better right now?” We recognize that every single person on this planet has two things that are universally common to each other: 1. We are all of the same race...the Human Race! 2. That as humans we all struggle with something! At this event you will make some amazing connections and you will learn why Networking is not about what you get, but what you give and what I call my #MyGive4. You really only need to meet one person to make your entire night worthwhile if you know what you are doing. You will have an opportunity to speak to everyone in the room, and you will absolutely meet people you might otherwise never have an opportunity to meet and you will see that's it's not what you are selling or how you sell it that matters. Instead, learn the importance of building 'know, like and trust' relationships! With that in mind we ask that you consider helping yourself and each other with those struggles by attending our events and sharing yourself and your knowledge, and practicing what we call #MYGIVE4 where we ask each of you to consider helping others for 4 hours a week in the following 4 ways. 1. GIVE of your ideas and talent freely! Share your vast life experience to help another. 2. GIVE of your time! Volunteer! Help a neighbor with a chose, carry someones groceries, volunteers at a soup kitchen or for a non-profit! 3. GIVE of your money! I'm not asking for your fortune, even 25 cents in a hat or 5 dollars to a crowdfunding campaign or in the basket at church can go a long way to someone struggling. 4. GIVE of your network through referrals! I now folks, you know folks, and the way we really do business is by building “Know, like and trust” based relationships! If I refer you and someone knows, likes and trusts the person, they will call you back or offer help when referred. Come see why over 15,000 people have attended in 5 countries and 17 cities worldwide! Each event starts at 6:45pm and ends about 9:45pm! PLEASE NOTE OUR NEW TICKET PRICING: Regular Tickets: $20 Student Tickets: $10 (You MUST have a current student ID) Tickets are always available on our website until 6:15pm the day of the event and walk-ins are 30$ CASH at the door until 7:15pm!

Whether you are actively writing, or one of those people who are always planning to start, one thing's for sure- you need a location. Can you write at home, work, or anywhere opportunity lends itself? Yes, but often those places are filled with distractions that strangle the imagination and breed procrastination. If you are looking for a serene location, with likeminded creatives, join Assistant Organizer Stephen Lombardo at the SJS monthly Writers Refuge at the McCowan Memorial Library from 6:30-8:30pm.
