December 13 – It’s not just about winning contests.
“I know EVERYTHING there is to know about making commercials. I mean, I’ve seen tons of them on TV. I’m pretty much an expert.”
Well, I hate to break it to you. Just by watching commercials you do not become an expert in making commercials. While it may seem like commercials are made to make you laugh or to be laughed at (Hello, Appliance Direct!), there is actually a method to make them super effective. Daniel Howell, our speaker for this week has delved deep into the methodology and is going be helping you make the most potent video possible- which b.t.w. happens to be my new band name. “Hi, we’re the Most Potent Video Possibles (MPVP), and we’re here to rock!”
You might be thinking to yourself, “But I don’t need or want to make commercials. I think I’ll skip this meet-up.”
So wrong. The tips and secrets that Daniel will be presenting will be useful in:
- Marketing your own services
- Knowing the right questions to ask your clients BEFORE you start pitching ideas to them NO MATTER WHAT THEIR VIDEO NEEDS ARE!
- Planning creative briefs
- Saving time – again we’re talking about potency (MPVP- “We’re here to rock!”)
- And therefore saving/making more money!
So, sorry to say it, but it would be a big mistake to miss this meeting!
After Daniel gives his talk, we’ll have our Orlando Filmmaker Showcase. We have a whopping 7 submissions this time from local filmmakers. We’ve got shorts from William Bristol, “Cheecho“, Enrico Marcellino, Sue Langford, Siegwart Mayr, Bryan Garces, & Brian Castellanos.
I hope to see you guys there:

P.S. Anyone up for seeing Star Wars:The Force Awakens? Unfortunately, I’ll be gone from the 18th to the 28th but I’d love to get a group together to go see it around new years. It will be my second or third time watching it by then. So we could all go somewhere afterwards and be film nerds and analyze its successes and/or short-comings.
