STAGE 32 HAPPENINGS
A productive and informational time at AFM last week. Dozens of great meetings that will influence the direction of Stage 32 along with some of my personal projects. Additionally, the Crowd Sourcing panel I moderated was attended by over a thousand aspiring and accomplished producers and filmmakers. My thanks to all who encouraged and supported me throughout. And, my thanks to AFM head honcho, Jonathan Wolf, and the indomitable Heather Hale for the opportunity. I hope to chronicle some of my experiences during AFM on these pages in the coming weeks.
Screenwriters and Filmmakers, Pitchfest VII will be held on November 23rd and 24th. Our lineup these two days, in my opinion, is the most impressive yet. Execs from Lawrence Bender Productions, Evolution, Millennium, Endgame and more will be on hand listening to your pitches. All of these companies are actively seeking talent/material. Click here to see the lineup and to register.
Also, we now have a Pinterest page – Please give us a follow here.
And finally, you may have seen the newest members of our Stage 32 family, Brand Ambassadors Emily Walker and Haley Shook around the site. They're here to make sure you get the most out of your Stage 32 experience. Feel free to say hello!
