Rudyard’s Pub has a comfy spaciness on the second floor. I have gone to one Meetup months ago when the meetups were held at the Fox and Hound. And the Industry Meetup got its own space reserved upstairs. Jackpot.

We get UPSTAIRS to ourselves! A luxury! WOO HOO!

The great thing in a meeting place for creative minds is witnessing their personalities play out.

  • One notable guy is the animator (and very animated) David Rowe (sp?) who’s delightfully bombastic in his stage mannerisms. I told him he would be great at making pitches. I begged him to do his Gollum impression for my Instagram.
  • I also met director Pam Worthington who has a SWAMP-funded documentary project known as “Quiet Storm Reform.” The way she pitched it makes a social conscious activist heart grow even bigger than it already is.
  • Stacey Moultrie, a sweet woman who’s set out to pitch/promote the scripts of her deceased friend.

This is the haven for screenwriters, composers, documentarians, editors, those who know Motion, those who are figuring Motion…
