3-2-09 CAmm Cine Lounge Meet & Greet

Next month, we're doing the CAmm Cine Lounge a little differently. We'll still screen your films, don't worry! Instead of an industry guest speaker, we're setting up the room for a Meet & Greet -- local production companies set up tables, actors and crew circulate the room - everybody meets & greets! Production companies -- we still have a few slots! Email Stacie to reserve your spot:

Here are the poduction companies on the schedule so far:

THE RUMBLEY FILM STUDIO: Upcoming Project—The Author

Contact Person: Hunter Nesbitt
Phone: 410-651-4535

Credits: Shorts: Ghostly Vacuum, Mary Swann, What Chance (Post-Production)

The Rumbley Film Studio is primarily me, Hunter Nesbitt, though I have a number of dedicated people helping me. I am interested in narrative film as art. Though I want to be able to tell a compelling story, I am less interested in entertaining than I am in exploring what can be ordinarily hidden. I am not interested in murder, mayhem, or torture, and using the medium for the kind of visceral effect that violence can produce. My aesthetic could be described as quiet, certainly not hip or witty. If you are interested, I can provide quicktime files of my last two projects, and you can see if my sensibility interests you. I cannot at this time pay either cast or crew. Nevertheless, it is important for logistical reasons that I have people helping me who are dedicated and responsible. I need people who will help for the love of the process and to learn, which are the reasons I do it. It would be nice to think that money will be made on my projects some day, but that may very well never happen. I want to do it anyway, and so I'm always on the lookout for help. I am especially looking for help in cinematography and sound, but I would like to meet anyone interested in any aspect of production.
