Northwest Actors – Show Us Your Clips and Celebrate 2013’s Success At The Final Actors Happy Hour of the Year!

Source –

It’s been a great year, Northwest actors – and we want to celebrate your success at the final Actors Happy Hour of 2013!

Join us at SE Portland’s Bar Maven on Monday, December 16 from 6 – 9 PM and share your success stories from the year that’s been – did you live up to (or surpass) your goals for 2013?  Did you make connections with important industry players?  Did you spread the word about APP-NW‘s professional standards, and help your fellow performers do their best work on professional sets in the Northwest and elsewhere?  We want to hear all about it!

We want to SEE your successes, too!  Our good friend Bashar Farrah, Bar Maven’s owner, has invited APP-NW members to screen a DVD on one of the establishment’s televisions – so let us see what you’ve worked on this past year!  To appear on this special 2013 DVD:

  • Check with the projects producers to make sure public display of the clip is authorized (the clips will only be played at Bar Maven on December 16, and no admission will be charged.)
  • Find 15 – 60 second clips in the project that features you prominently and note the time code.  Keep in mind that no sound will be played at Bar Maven – and raw footage is just fine… we just want to see you!
  • Send as many .MP4, .MOV, .WMV or AVI clips as you like (no Youtube or Vimeo links, please) to by 4:00 PM Saturday, December 14.  If your clips are too large to email, use a service like to send them to us.
  • Be sure to note the time code of the clip you want played, your name, the name of the project, and your web site’s address so we can include them on the DVD.

We’re not looking for your reels – we’d just like to see clips from projects you’ve worked on this past year.  We can’t guarantee that everything you send us will make it onto the final DVD… but we’ll try and get as many clips on there as we can!  We’re looking forward to seeing what you’ve done over the past year!

But wait – there’s more! As always, Bashar is offering special discounts to APP-NW members (remember to wear your APP-NW pins, or get them at the door!) We’ll also be raffling off some great gifts for northwest performers – an Actor’s Holdon Log, a gift certificate for a PATA Citywide Audition Prep workshop with noted actor Tim True, and other prizes!

Please RSVP at our Facebook page so we know you’re coming – and be sure to share this post with every actor on your list… we’d love to get a large group together on Monday night to celebrate this fantastic year before we turn the calendar to 2014!
