Free Support and Outreach for Colorado's Filmmaking Community
GA Schedule, Sign Up, Details & Discussions about our monthly CASA General Assemblies in Denver.
Latest Activity: Feb 14
FILM: To get our creative juices flowing, we open with a locally (10 minute max) produced short film and discussion.
SCENE WORK: Then we proceed to pick random local actors from the audience to participate in the traditional GA "cold read" of a scene by a local screenwriter, after which, we will perform the scene with actors who have pre-rehearsed this scene to the writer/director's liking. Then we will engage in comment and discussion about the evolution of the cold read to the finished scene. This way we get to see the scene's transformation, understanding the process of actor choices, character development and direction instead of JUST the cold read and critique on such a raw example.
SCENE AUTOPSY: This is another new twist. MASS FOCUS will feature a 5 minute video clip of a famous movie scene. the audience will watch and then discuss. What makes this scene work, or not work? How does it address and move the story, what is its respective grammar to the film; ie- dialog, character, foreshadowing or all of the above. Let's learn how to improve our crafts by watching the masters and studying their process and intentions.
MEET YOUR CASA COMMUNITY: We are dedicating time here to have CASA members from the audience come up, talk about their projects, ask for advice, promote, pitch or anything else that they want to do.
GUEST SPEAKER: We are inviting a guest speaker to participate in every event. These are working professionals in multiple related fields. Acting, producing, directing, cinematography, music composition, agents, you name it. These speakers will be available for audience Q&A. We are striving to bring experienced and accomplished guest speakers so that we can all really leave our GA's with new knowledge and perspectives.
MIXER: One of the most important parts of a community is the ability to gel by discussing topics that are fresh on our minds. Once the daily events have finished, we have allowed extra time to mingle, meet, network, whatever you want to call it. Let's build our community face to face, not just online!
WHO'S INVITED>All writers and actors who are able to attend are encouraged to do so. Agents, Filmmakers, Directors and Producers are invited to join us as audience participants.New comers at all levels are welcome.
