April 2018 Meetup

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 Club

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

SJS Craft Lecture: From Outline to Scenes

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.
