MOOM #1



We're #1!
The very first MOOM took place July 10, 2009 at 8am at Barnies Coffee in Baldwin Park. (Audio meeting notes) It was a fun happy gathering of creative makers and producers listening, sharing and brainstorming.

Audio Meeting Notes


What is MOOM?
Independent producers of content in any medium meet for an early morning, one-hour, coffee-fueled brainstorm and inspiration thing.

Some proposed ideas:

League of Independent Producers
Some entity that indies and co-dependents can turn to for guidance and assistance. Might also give us a larger voice when acting as a group, say with ad buys, for instance.

The Daily City Fall Indie Arts Preview
30-45 minute live presentation to generate interest in and an awareness of, the projects of the independent producer/maker in Orlando, based on the "Whats Up Downtown?" presentation I saw last week. I will send more info on this once I secure a venue and date.

The Daily City Independent Producers Information Table
I rent a table one Sunday at the Lake Eola Farmers Market (they're only $20), armed with marketing material from various indie artists and groups, and try to drum up interest. If you'd like to participate, send your material to mark@thedailycity.com. Send me pdf files I can easily print out and low-rez jepgs, or links to high-rez jpegs.

Mark, today was very helpful for me. I happen to prefer the organic structure. I believe in letting a thing become what it will. For examples, I wasn't expecting to sit down with Ryan Price from Florida Creatives for an interview about my show. And we did. What a nice thing this morning became for me! Thanks for the start up.

I was happy for the turnout and glad we all got to meet and talk. Thanks again for waking up and coming at that ungodly hour. You were great as always.
