Local Film Community Happenings

Hello, friends!  Some of you fellow filmmakers might like to know about upcoming events.  Be sure to click on the links for more information, and share with your fellow filmmakers who might be interested!

"Pioneers in Skirts" Production Assistance
There is an opportunity to help a friend of mine, Ashley Maria, with a documentary she is filming in Raleigh this August.  She's a graduate student at the University of Southern California studying Film and Television at the School of Cinematic Arts.  The documentary is titled "Pioneers in Skirts" about an organization called Business and Professional Women.  If you're interested in helping as a member of her crew, you can find more information here.  Some of the pertinent info is listed below, and pulled straight from her site:

Shooting Dates:  
Thursday August 12th OR 13th (TBD) for a shoot at Meredith College
Saturday, August 14th in Carrboro, NC 
Crew Needed:
Camera operators, grip & electric, boom operators, production assistants, hair & make-up
Credit & DVD once film is finalized
Email Ashley Maria; please include resume with experience, your interest in the documentary, and any equipment you can provide for shooting day
We are low budget and are using available resources to make this documentary happen, so I thank you in advance for being a part of a very special documentary to me and the ladies from the BPW organization.
