Independent Film Arizona: January meeting "Sell Your Movie Idea with Killer Loglines!"

Independent Film Arizona

 

Thanks for another Great year at IFA.   Lots of interesting workshops & lectures occurred in 2017.

Thanks to outgoing President Wayne Vlcan for a great year!  Thanks also to Past President Grisel Wilson for donating the Pizza & drinks for this years party.  Decembers meeting is the annual Boardmember election:  So, welcome to the 2018 Board.  President Genie Joseph,  Vice President Lori Rein , Secretary Chris Suaer, Treasurer Glenn Wolfgang, Members at Large  Noreen O’ Shea, Anne Dalton, Richard Welch, Jodi Horton.  It was a fun meeting.  We watched some shorts and generally got to know each other.  It was a nice end to 2017.  Welcome 2018; Happy New Year!

 

*** PLEASE NOTE  BEGINNING IN JANUARY our monthly MEETING LOCATION ADDRESS HAS CHANGED 

 

The new Address is the Tucson Jewish Community Center located at 3800 E River Rd Tucson, AZ, 85718.

The Documentary Group will continue to meet at Southern Arizona Video Productions located at 911 S Tyndall Ave Tucson, AZ, 85719.

 

January Membership Discussion topic:    Sell Your Movie Idea with Killer Loglines!

 

So, you have a script or a concept and you want to world to know, but do you have a logline?

Can you intrigue, woo, and garner interest in thirty-three words or less?  

 

If you’re not sure, you absolutely must attend IFA’s January 9th meeting @ 7pm.

 

Philip, Genie, and special guest Victoria Lucas will give feedback and take comments from the audience on your logline.

In this presentation we’ll talk about:

·         What’s a logline?

·         How’s that different than a tagline?

·         How about some logline examples (I’ll have a dozen loglines to read and we’ll do thumbs up, thumbs down from the audience)?

·         How do I write a good one?

·         Got a Logline?  Bring it and we’ll give you audience and judges feedback!

·         Blow us away with your logline!

From Anna Ziegler - award-winning playwright for Photograph 51 and author of our last season's Dov and Ali - comes this story of a loving, happy couple about to decorate their tree on the night before Christmas. Then comes a knock at the door which will change their lives.


"Ms. Ziegler's quietly lyrical language has a luminous beauty, and her talent for creating characters whose complicated depths are just visible on their surfaces is still more remarkable."
