Introduction to FILMCOMMUNITY Group of New Jersey



ES: Hi everyone and Welcome!

MS: This is the FILMCOMMUNITY Group of New Jersey with your Host and Admin, Thomas Luca.

CU: So glad you could make it here, whether you are a seasoned veteran or want to break into the Industry.
A blog thats sole purpose is to offer a place where Filmmakers and Writers can network, socialize, inform and entertain ideas, treatments, and concepts. Now although the title does say New Jersey it also pertains to New York and Pennsylvania so if you are from these three states this blog can be your home and HQ but of course if anyone has friends or colleagues outside of those boundaries they are welcome to sit in on any discussions and even join the Group if they like, just ask first please.

I have prepared something special for you all, whether you are in Publishing or Motion Pictures, this is a group for people in the Entertainment Industry regardless of whether they are Authors, Writers, Screenwriters, Producers, Directors, Editors, Production Designers, Concept Designers, Visual Effects Artists, Special Makeup Effects Artists, whether they work in the departments of Development, Pre-Production, Production, Post-Production, and Distribution, in fact anyone that shares a role or responsibilities within the pipeline of Filmmaking.

The reason I include Authors and Writers is that often times if not all the time films are started on the basis of a story or Narrative, so it's not uncommon for an Author, Writer, or even these days Comic Book Creators to be approached or approach someone with a story, idea, or treatment to be produced. Some examples are Film Adaptations like that of comic books that have been made into a movie are; Creepshow, MARVEL franchise, 30 Days of Night, Alien vs. Predator, The Crow, From Hell, Heavy Metal, Hellboy, The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, these are just to name a few, there are many out there that have been adapted into films.

I would also like to announce a plug here, in the following year I have been working on founding a Production Design Studio / Post-Production Company (both under one roof) and a Film Distribution Company right here in Hunterdon County, New Jersey that will offer an outlet or services for Filmmakers, be them big budget or low budget.
The two will be subsidiaries owned and operated by a company that I founded called Luca Entertainment Enterprises, LLC. More about that later and if anyone in Hunterdon County, NJ would like to speak to me about having a part in as CoFounder you can contact me here on my website. Please only serious inquiries only, there is lots to be done yet and the project is still in the planning stages so if you want to be a part of a company that will grow and grow with it let me know. I also distributed flyers, posters, and business card tear-offs all around Hunterdon County so if you would like to find them and help distribute that would be appreciated.
Again this is especially for people in New Jersey but anyone is welcome so long as you ask.

See you all in the following posts. And remember you are welcome to comment and discuss anything here so long as it falls in the realm of Filmmaking and the Entertainment Industry so please feel right at home and join in. Oh and if your comments are directed towards me and I do not answer right away please be patient because I am involved in many different things and might not respond right away but rest assured I will get back to you.

Well... That about wraps things up with this post up, aaaaaaand cut! *That's a wrap!*
