Our new monthly event with varying speakers and topics related to media production in New Hampshire.

Future meetings will continue to address issues that affect the state’s film, television and media production community.
Next Discussion Series: Monday November 17, 2014, 6 p.m.
Topic: “The Digital Democratization of Filmmaking”
Democratization of technology is defined by Wikipedia as “the process by which access to technology rapidly continues to become more accessible to more people.” Has the growth and accessibility of digital technology in production and distribution made it easier (or more difficult) to be a filmmaker? Are there (or should there be) different schools of thought between being a “filmmaker” and simply creating digital content? What does being a filmmaker really mean? In this month’s free-form conversation, we’ll explore the cultural and industry impact of digital democratization in filmmaking both on a broad scope and at a local level. Come with your thoughts and ideas!
