Marty Collins joins the geeks for a spotlight on movie making in Santa Cruz.
Marty founded the Santa Cruz based Digital
Media Factory which is housed in the old Wrigley’s building which has bandwidth,
space and a factory feel to produce digital content.
The Digital Media Factory is
Santa Cruz’s new state-of-the-art Digital Media Showcase buisness center.
Cinemar is throwing a Schmoozfest tonight (Nov 19th) at 7:30pm which is open to the public. The Schmoozfest is a monthly
opportunity to pitch ideas, discover new local talent, present a video clip of
your latest project, and generally have a great time with cinema invloved people.
The meeting will take place at the Digital Media Factory,
located at 2809 Mission Street, just off Western Drive, on the West side of
Santa Cruz (formerly the old Wrigley Building).
