ATLFF365 Networking

Eat, Drink & B-Indie
From Freebie Indie Kid to Paid Professional Filmmaker
Tuesday, July 19th 2011

How do you turn weekend shoots and volunteer set days into paid work? What kind of free jobs help and which ones will do nothing for your career? How do you realistically evaluate what your skills and experience are worth (surprise, it may not be high as you think). What impact do those projects that never see the light of day have on your resume?

If you aren’t quite ready to go pro yet, how do you maximize what you’re doing so you’ll be ready when you do want to step it up?

Join us the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 7:30pm – 9:30pm at Manuel’s Tavern (602 N Highland Avenue Northeast) for networking, panel discussions, guest speakers, and new equipment demos over a cash bar. FREE and Open to the Public
