Cast Your Actors, Cast Your Crew
FuelFilm:Memphis announces their first annual “Filmmakers Media Expo” slated for Saturday, August 27, 2011, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at The Sky Grill. Combining the elements of creative arts and technical savvy, the Filmmakers Media Expo promises something for everyone in the Mid-South’s Film Community, or for those eager to ‘get their Hollywood on’! Events include casting calls for actors, hands-on tabletop demonstrations and workshops, guest speakers, crew and PA networking opportunities, and hourly prize giveaways. FuelFilm offers a day of learning and "hands on" presentations for every element of filmmaking -- from script to screen, for all ages and skill levels.
Cast your actors - Cast your crew – this is your event!. “The Expo has been considered with filmmakers, screenwriters, technical crew, actors, producers, directors, PA's in mind, Event Co-Chair Matt Beickert says. While our other workshops and panels have targeted a more specific audience, the Filmmakers Media Expo is for the entire filmmaking community
Directors and Producers will have the opportunity to meet and network with technical film crew members and support personnel. Screenwriters will have the opportunity to pitch their scripts to filmmakers. Casting Directors will have private space within the multi-level Sky Grille to meet actors and cast projects. Event Co-Chair David Merrill observes, “the Filmmakers Media Expo will allow first-time filmmakers and aspiring film support professionals to network and learn from industry pros – it’s win-win for everyone”.
release time, the guest list is still being assembled, but Co-Chair James
Sposto assures Expo attendees that “an impressive array of film industry talent
will appear, both live and via Skype”.
