Exit Through The Gift Shop

Saw a poster for this (Banksy’s Exit Through the Gift Shop) and was intrigued.  Sorry, Sacramento hasn’t been deemed cool enough to get a showing.

Dumbworld Hearts Sacramento Connect

Dumbworld  is one of the sites “handpicked by Sacramento Bee editors for their consistent quality” to be included in the launch of their new Web 2.0 network called Sacramento Connect.

Don’t worry. We won’t let it go to our heads, and we will continue to give you the lack of quality that you expect from Dumbworld.com.  Below is a video on how to use the network.

10 Tips for Networking for Filmmakers in the Sacramento Region

From the Capital Film Arts Alliance’s Newsletter, 10 Tips for Networking for Filmmakers. In part, it is based off a list for London filmmakers (my people!!!) from Raindance.org.

I don’t usually post entire articles, but this is worth it. If you are a filmmaker in the Sacramento area, and you aren’t a CFAA member, go to CFAA meetings, or don’t receive the weekly newsletter, you should be (contact them and ask to be added to the list.  Tell them Dumbworld sent you).  Whatever meager amount of success Dumbworld has had is in part due to Laurie Pederson and networking with the CFAA, and like Laurie says, “It is not what you know; it is who you know.”

1. Memento
Remember the power of little notes that Leonard Shelby used in Chris Nolan’s film. Use his tips even if you have not “this condition” – use the power of business cards. Take and collect them from anyone who gives them to you: you might not know when you need a help of make-up artist or a professional florist. Make your own business cards especially for your filmmaking “you”. If you are a student you can use some cheap resources – like free business cards templates or www.vistaprint.co.uk
