We offer conference call and face to face events several times a month.  Our informative events cover topics like how to fund your media, how to protect your intellectual property, how to earn more from what you create, how to publish books and apps, how to produce films, etc. We also cover topics that speak to the heart and soul of the artistic experience, like Jung’s theories of the collective unconscious.

We also do social and networking events where creative pros can comfortably and happily spend time together.  It’s kind of cool that we live in a community where the best writers, filmmakers, performers, and musicians congregate.  We should make the most of our good fortune.

If you have questions, comments, or suggestions for the group, please email nancy.fulton@yahoo.com.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Carl Jung & The Unconscious: Your Undiscovered Country & the People That Live There

This meetup is for writers, filmmakers, fine artists, and entrepreneurs who want to master practical techniques for using their subconscious minds more effectively while also learning new methods for communicating ideas, information, and emotions to collaborators, clients, and audiences.

At each meeting members learn skills they can put to immediate use in their creative and professional work for years to come. This is a great group for people who enjoy meeting with, and learning with, intelligent, open minded, insightful and effective people once or twice a month.

Creative entrepreneurs build businesses from the ground up.  Sometimes they are writers, screenwriters, programmers, or graphic designers turning stories and expertise into entertainment, information and services that entertain and support thousands. Sometimes they are producers, filmmakers, and rainmaking CEOs gathering teams together to work miracles.

If you’re a writer, screenwriter, or filmmaker looking for a way to accelerate your career while doing what you love most, this is the group for you. Meeting two to four times a month, we address both the art and science of profitably creating media that entertains, thrills, informs, or transforms.

I’ve been running highly-rated meetups in Santa Monica for Writers, Filmmakers and Creative Professionals for several years (see links below). I’ve wanted to offer them in Hollywood for quite some time, and I’ve finally got the chance.

Some of my events are free, some cost just $5 to help cover the costs of renting space and creating course materials.  I do face to face events as a rule, but occasionally offer conference call events to support people who find it hard to meet in the real world.
