Las Vegas IndieMeet 2011 (May 27-29)

A bunch of filmmaking/artist types come to Vegas, for 3 days, to mingle, watch indie movies, eat, drink and share knowledge.

Memorial Day weekend - May 27th-29th. (7th year)

N/W Las Vegas. (PM me for the address.)

No charge, but bring $5 for pizza, during Saturday demos. There will be food at all times! :D

Check out the many pictures, at:
Cracker Funk, I got your PM! Sounds great! Yes, there are kids in some of these pics, mainly because they are my brood (or their friends) and the event is 3 days long. They like to swim or see some of the demos and certain movies. Generally, the features are not kid friendly. Almost all the stuff from last year was edgy:


As with most indie stuff, you never know what you're going to get! I like that spirit of the Meet. It's a mish mash of offerings.

Had a great time there last year. :cool:

Time to check the schedule. Would love to come again.

That would be totally cool if you or Jeff could make it out, again! We sincerely enjoyed having you guys. At the very least, we'll get Jeff's movie. :lol:

Memorial Day weekend is one of five I just can't get out
of work on. Damn this entertainment business. People
off work want to be entertained and I chose the wrong field.

I so want to attend.
Your knowledge would be very welcomed, Rik! A presentation by you or ROC would be a treat. You almost have to play this by ear; if either of your schedules opens up, we'll be waiting for you.

Sure wish I could. I finally got a cut of the swamp monster
movie I made 2 years ago with Lance Hendrickson, Michael
Ironside and Heather Morris. Be a blast to show it there. Even
though I think the editor they hired is blind or smoking dope.
Or both.
How did I miss this thread? These always look so fun!

One of these years, scoop, I'm gonna make it out there.

Zensteve brings the pineapple-upside-down cake, right? :yes:
I attended last year and had a super good time. Mike is a wonderful ringleader, Sheila provides a banquet of delicious food and both Conways are consummate hosts! :) Will be back for another round. Maybe next year. Have a blast in 2011!

Just let us know. If you can swing the airfare, you won't need money for anything else. If Zensteve doesn't bring the pineapple-upside-down cake, we'll think of something!

Scoopic - I'm trying to work something out.

Oh, really..........?:yes:

I attended last year and had a super good time.

I loved seeing you soak it up, Jeff. You are a hoot to be around!
