From WIFTH: Networking opportunities with fellow members is a big part of belonging to Women in Film & Television-Houston but as one of our members noted at the March meeting, we all tend to stick to the groups of people we already know. With this in mind the board brainstormed around a few ideas to mix it up a bit. Get ready to “Speed Network”. For this program WIFTH will join forces with Southwest Alternate Media Project (SWAMP) to add to the fun!
Bring 12 – 15 business cards, head shots, resumes, promotional materials and join us on September 27, 7:00 pm at Brasil Cafe to meet those members you haven’t met before. Everyone will walk away with new contacts and friends.
Arrive by 7:00 pm because we will kick the evening off around 7:30 pm to give everyone time order a drink and register for the event. We will start by pairing everyone up and when “Action” is called you will have five minutes to get to know each other before “Cut” is called and everyone changes partners. We will keep changing partners every five minutes until everyone has met at least 15 new people.
Prepare ahead to talk fast and be concise about the highlights of who you are and what you do in the industry. Actors who meet other actors may wind up with a new person to run lines with or help with those video auditions that are hard to do solo. Producers may walk away with new actors, designers, directors, crew, and more to consider for future projects. It’s a great way for directors to get to know potential actors, producers, and crew!
This event will be a great way to get to know everyone and feel like a part of the organization right away if you are a brand new member of WIFTH or SWAMP and don’t know anyone yet. If you are not a member but are considering joining come check us out!
