How To Get Involved
Come to a Meeting
We normally hold weekly meetings every Wednesday at 8 pm at the Fells Point Corner Theater. But right now due to the coronavirus pandemic we are practicing social distancing by holding virtual meetings on Zoom. We read scripts submitted by anyone who would like to share a script, discuss upcoming film productions, and other group news.
We do have a calendar of all of our upcoming events which include a direct Zoom link to all of the meetings. So if you have a free Wednesday night then please join us.
Direct a Film
Do you have an awesome idea for a short film you want to make? Charm City Filmmakers wants to help you make it!
Our group prefers to shoot new films in "waves", which allows directors to help each other through each step of the production process. We start a new wave of projects roughly every 6 months. We table-read each others' scripts and offer constructive feedback. We hold auditions as a group to attract the largest number of actors. It's a great way for new filmmakers to learn the ropes of being a first-time director!
Other Crew Roles
If you aren't ready to direct your own film yet but still want to participate in the film making process, there are many other roles you can fill! We are always looking for more cinematographers, audio engineers, grips, gaffers, production assistants, and script supervisors.
Not sure what some of these roles are? You should still come to our next meeting, and we will be happy to teach you!
Our group is run by volunteers who simply love to make films. But we also have a lot of expenses: website fees, meetup.com fees, renting space to hold our meetings and renting space to screen our films to the public.
If you have the means to help us cover some of these costs and support Baltimore filmmakers, we would be most appreciative.
