The first rule of Screenwriters Down South is you don’t talk about Scr–no, no, that’s not right. We definitely want to talk about Screenwriters Down South. 

Screenwriters Down South is a public Meetup group in Baton Rouge organized to provide camaraderie for writers and filmmakers in the Louisiana film community. The group is the sister group to the Baton Rouge Film, TV, Theater & Music Industry Meetup. Together, the two vibrant communities of southern filmmakers have over 3,500 members. 

The group of Louisiana filmmakers will gather for its summer discussion series at Juban’s Restaurant in Baton Rouge on Thursday, July 6th with a 6:15 p.m. start time. The event is hosted by Nick Savides, a Baton Rouge filmmaker who is immersed in the Louisiana Arts scene, and Joe Vuci, a Baton Rouge-based filmmaker and owner of UpperLine Event Productions. Guest speaking at the July Meetup will be Micah Haley, Producer of The Old Way, also casually referred to as the “Nic Cage Western”. The Old Way was also supported by the Louisiana talent of composer Andrew Morgan Smith with his original score.  

Micah is the former editor-in-chief for Scene Magazine and will talk about, according to the Meetup description, “how to produce an indie film with bankable talent, even with a modest budget.” Juban’s Restaurant and Bar in Baton Rouge, the food-and-drink anchor for this discussion, is well-known for its diverse Creole cuisine and elegant atmosphere. 

The gathering is free and open to the public. Attendees are asked to RSVP via the Meetup page so they can provide enough space. People will gather early to relax at the bar around 6 p.m. and the official start time is 6:15 on Thursday, July 6th. 

Those new to the scene or intimidated by a large gathering of filmmakers – get out there, eat something wonderful, and enjoy the community – it’s there for all of you.
