Today I attended the very first meeting of the Filmmakers of Kalamazoo group. I am so excited to be a part of this because it scratches an itch that I have had for a long time. By that, I mean I have never considered myself a creative person but I am a person in love with ALL things creative. I love creative art, music, and films and this feels like it could be the catalyst for my legitimate introduction into the creative arts world.
The group is just getting its start so it is hard to say where we will end up but if you are from the area and you are interested in any part of film making. I really encourage you to come to a meeting and see if it is for you.
The Filmmaker Group of Kalamazoo was started by Rhett Lawson And I lifted the following from his about page.
An aspiring filmmaker with a strong background in digital media. In achieving a BFA in Cinema and Television Arts, I created content to help express and promote artists, activists, and organizations. Soon after, the pursuit of a MA in Interactive Media explored tools and theory behind interactive video, web development, and VR design.
I’ve had many opportunities to explore the production process throughout my academic career. EuropaCorp in Beverly HIlls, CA focused on covering TV and movie scripts, while in Leeuwarden, Netherlands there was a focus on production and onsite editing.
Since graduation I’ve worked with the documentary production company Thunder Mountain Media as a videographer, Exum Photography as a styling assistant, and Island Sound and Video as a videographer.
