Our meetings have retured to the first Tuesday of the month.
- Guest Speaker: Max Rouzier
Max Rouzier! (Roo- Zee- Eh!) loves all things media, from books and comics to TV and film. He loves them so much that he became a media producer. He’s best known for co-running Lumberjack Films, a viral video production company. As a young YouTube Partner they make weekly viral shorts that have more than 1-million total views. In February 2013, he started a Public Relations firm that helps projects make viral successes online. He’s excited to see what new things they can teach people about production online.
This year, one of his goals is to mentor more, and help talent reach their video production goals. Even though there are many obstacles in filmmaking still, it’s possible to create great work, and build a loyal audience; and with a strategic approach, even make money. Max is excited to come back to Upstate Independence and share his experience at Lumberjack Films, and how other filmmakers can look to the Internet as a alternative way to tell their own stories.
