DFC - "New Member Day & Make a Mystery Movie in Six Weeks"

New Members arrive at 12:00 PM

Current Members arrive at 1:00 PM


Film is not something we do, film is a lifestyle. We believe that every great film begins with a great story and collaboration is the precursor to success. In January 2015 ten people got together with the idea of collaborating on film projects. In 2016 we had our first premiere and showed 5 completed shorts. A fire was lit and between then and our second premiere in June 2017 170 volunteers had completed multiple shorts and making new friendships. Most reaching inside themselves to discover creative, technical and artistic talents while making their first film.

Every month, the Dallas Film Crew holds a New Member Day to introduce who we are, what we do, and how we operate. People of all levels are encouraged to join, ranging from beginners new to film but interested in telling visual stories, and film veterans who are seeking to establish their network in Dallas and involvement in organized productions.

2018 is your year. It is the year you stop asking yourself why you are not making films.

Some quick FAQs
1. How long is the event?
It varies; We aim to be done by 4pm but sometimes we are done earlier or a bit late. You are welcome to step out at any time if you have other commitments. 2. How many people can I bring?
You can bring anyone and as many people as you want!

3. Do I need to bring anything?
Bring a business card, but otherwise, you don't need much aside from yourself!

4. I am new and don't have much experience, should I come?
Yes! this is an orientation/social event. At the same time, we will help you understand how you can start in our organization as a new OR experienced filmmaker.

5. Current and new members will be invited to create a film to fit a theme, to then turn those films in in six weeks. This week's theme, mystery movies!
