Co-op Production Company/Group

Co-op Production Company/Group

Hello. I'm interested in exploring a co-op style production company with a group of committed members to help each other produce finished products. I've mounted stage plays recently and so wished I'd been able to film them but union rules don't allow for that. I'm thinking I get my hands dirty for your projects, you do the same for mine. Five members, five projects. DIRECTOR, WRITER, PRODUCER, CAMERAPERSON, LIGHTING/SOUND. We meet, read/pitch work see if there's interest, commit, set up small fund that will cut costs for everyone, set up schedule and shoot. I've seen this done with students many times with micro budgets and a great deal of enthusiasm. My film would require one set and four actors. If I could find similar project needs we could shoot back to back and save a lot of time and money. Maybe even share actors? Get the idea? I worked in ensemble theater where we mounted several plays with same cast. Why not in film? Also, in film school I often acted, wrote and directed with the same group of people. With today's film equipment the possibilities are endless. If you have a script you're dying to make and want to explore this idea with me, let me know. I'm Los Angeles based so I'm seeking local projects. This is all preliminary exchange of ideas and open to anything that works. Ideally, a Spring schedule would be realistic.

Sackett at 415-602-9500NOW A BIT MORE ABOUT THIS EVENT!Do you hate Networking as much as most of us do? Are you also bad at it, often wondering 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! Take a look at our site and what people say about the events here: TheArtofActiveNetworking.com Come see why over 12,000 people have attended worldwide! Tickets are 20$ on-line on our site until 6pm the day of the event and 30$ at the door until 7:00pm. Each event typically ends about 9:30pm! You must purchase a ticket online in advance to get the 20$ pricing. Get your tickets for December 7th using this link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-art-of-active-networking-orange-county-december-7-2016-tickets-20026311236 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 #GIVE4. 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, you will instead learn the importance of building 'know, like and trust' relationships! Finally you are then invited to join all of our groups and pages and use our FREE walls to post up what you might be looking for, all of those links are on our homepage near the ticket link. Everything you need to know about this event is on our site. Join the pages and the groups, spread the word and also take a look at my TEDxFulton Street talk, also on our site. TheArtofActiveNetworking.com Giving to and helping others will change your life. I ask you to only consider taking 4 hours out of your very busy week to do just that in the following ways: 1. Give your ideas and talents. You are one talented person and so many never get to see or benefit from your gifts. 2. Give a little money, you can pay someone’s toll, buy them a coffee behind you in line or donate to a non-profit! All of them will appreciate the effort. Go ahead, make their day. 3. Give of your time, the elderly lady down the street could use a little help in her yard since her husband passed, your local shelter or non-profit is always needing some help with volunteers. Let their small need be your good deed! 4. Give of your referrals in your network to help someone. This is the easiest thing to do ex. using social media sites to provide a great way to refer each other to new connections. Finally, as I always say, “WE ALL STRUGGLE WITH SOMETHING” and guess what? It’s not easy to ask for help. But it’s very easy to open the door for someone to ask buy simply offering to listen. So…#GIVE 4 / GIVE MORE! I, Mark E. Sackett started this in San Francisco over 7 years ago as a way to help others do better in life, love and business. I own 13 companies and live in San Francisco. I hop between Los Angeles, New York, Vancouver BC and my hometown of Kansas City often. I'm a Director, Producer, Designer, Art Director and Public Speaker. Working daily in Branding, Marketing, Film, Television and Music and as an events producer and speaker allows me to talk about and thrive, while living an authentic, powerful and creative life. My Mantra: "The power of us all working together is so much greater than anything each of us can accomplish on our own." See you soon and I hope your year is about beautiful, powerful connections.
