It's often easy to forget that filmmakers live in Tacoma. Outside of specific events, like the Grand Cinema's 72-hour Film Contest, independent filmmakers in Tacoma don't seem to be as publicly active as those slightly to the north.
Due to our proximity to Seattle, many of the film-oriented people I know tend to travel up there to meet with various filmmaking groups, networking parties and other assorted events. I do, from time to time, but I often find that people I'm meeting live closer to Tacoma.
Some time ago, on this very blog, I announced the first meeting of Tacoma Video. Since then, a small group of us has met fairly consistently, exchanging ideas, brainstorming with one another and helping each other bring those ideas and brainstorms to reality.
Our membership has changed and fluctuated over time, usually based on word of mouth. To my dismay, I realized that I have not posted anything about it in a public forum since that first announcement on September 5th, 2008,
So here, now, I am telling you: if you have any interest in film and video production, whether it's a hobby or your life's passion, join us tomorrow at Minoela. Grab something to snack on, something to drink, and be prepared to get to know and get creative with like-minded people.
Seattle's great and all, but why drive up there to meet people who live down here?

My name is Adam J. Manley, better known in some circles as Adam the Alien. I make pretty things for your eyes. To see, not to wear. I don’t make glasses. Wouldn’t it be awesome if I did, though? Then I wouldn’t have to pay insane prices for a new pair. And they’d be magic. That’s right, MAGIC. Impressed? Yeah, I thought so.
