We had such a good time last month at AGU we’re doing it again next month with S FACTOR 2. Send in your videos or just attend as part of the audience.
S FACTOR 2: Featuring my friends, actress and script consultant Dorie Barton (who has appeared in lots of movies including, “Meet the Fockers,” “Down with Love,” “Bewitched”) and actor/improv acting instructor Brian Palermo (he was the computer science professor in, “The Social Network” and was in “Thank You For Smoking,” and “Big Momma’s House”). It’s going to be another great session — come join us in Salt Lake. Details on video submission are here.
IF YOU’RE GOING TO THE OCEAN SCIENCE MEETING IN SALT LAKE SEND IN YOUR 5 MINUTE VIDEO
Last month we did the first official “S Factor” panel at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco. It was a great experience featuring 10 videos ranging widely in quality which we, one at a time, showed to the audience, offered up our filmmaking knowledge (both of the other panelists were USC film school classmates of mine in the mid-90’s) and conducted discussions with each videomaker and the audience.
That was actually the 4th time I’ve done a video workshop at either AGU or Ocean Sciences, but the first time that I brought along two ringers which made it about ten times better than the previous sessions. So this time I’m bringing my long time writing advisor Dorie Barton and veteran improv comedy actor and Groundling alum Brian Palermo. Last fall I did an all day workshop with them in Los Angeles with 25 environmental activists. They are awesome and were a great team so be sure to stop by if you’re at the meeting.
