Topic: FFCon 2K12 ... the thinking begins
Hey guys! Wanted to start the conversation on this. Thinking that July or August would be a good time for this - thinking somewhere within 90 miles of Chicago O'Hare since it's a major airport most people can cheaply fly to, and there will be lots of inexpensive lodging and stuff like that.
We could also do LA, if people were more into that, but presents some additional costs and logistical challenges.
But yeah, conversation started! Where you want this thing?
EDIT -- UPDATED WITH MORE INFO ON WHAT FFCON IS
BASICALLY ... here's how FFCon works ...
Thursday-Friday: People get in, meet each other, smile and have fun. We go out for a big dinner together and then hit up a bar or party somewhere.
Saturday: We do an "in-camera edit" film - basically a sequentially shot film, like the movies we made before we knew how to edit. We all watch our films for the first time once they're all done, and we vote on a winner. We also put 'em up on FF proper. Then we eat and hang out again!
Sunday: Breakfast, people start to head home!
There's no fee or anything like that - people just pay their way out here, and it's a great excuse to visit somewhere new or somewhere cool and hang out. Can always come early or stay later and explore! In the end the idea is it's just cool to meet in person and make a movie together.
