I've recently relocated to Sacramento from Ohio. The transition has been beyond rough and meeting people has been even worse. I'm an independent filmmaker and would love to find other filmmakers to work with. If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!!

Xander

Xander, there was a story about local filmmaking on a community news website just yesterday. Sacramento Press / How the Internet is Creating a New Film Industry That's a good starting place for seeing some links to groups, as well as some individuals. You might try to reach out to some of the individuals named or those in the comment section to get their recommendations.

Sorry you've had trouble meeting people. Not sure about the film crowd, but people here are generally pretty open and unpretentious (by California standards anyway), so hopefully your luck will change.

I'm new to the area also. I feel your pain... meeting people in a new area is always tough. If you ever need a young stud to be a role in one of your films let me know lol
