We are so excited about the upcoming SB2: Behind the Lens on February 18th at 5 PM. This is going to be one for the history books. So right now, stop what you are doing and go to www.srqsb2.com and purchase your tickets. Once you’ve done that, continue reading.
Here’s why we are counting down the days until the 18th:
1. Our panelists have the inside scoop on the local film scene.
And that’s the point, right? Each SB2 we bring in the best and brightest to help understand key issues facing our region and also to enlighten us on the most current happenings that affect us. This month we’ll hear from Larry Thompson of Ringling College of Art and Design, Debbie Meihls of the Bradenton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (and she’s also the Bradenton Area Film Commissioner), Joseph Restaino – the Artistic Director of Skyway Film Festival, Jeanne Corcoran of the Sarasota County Film Commission and Tony Stopperan, owner and operator of House of John Productions. The amount of talent, experience and vision in this group of panelists is incredible.
2. Soundstage anyone?
We’ve been hearing lots of a buzz about Sarasota needing to have a soundstage. Ringling College of Art and Design is building one that will open in 2016. President Larry Thompson will have all the details about this 30,000 square-foot-building and its impact on film development in the region.
3. The Powel Crosley.
Need we say more? The iconic estate is draped in beauty. It is intrenched in history. It is a local landmark. And, it’s the venue for February’s SB2. This is a gorgeous setting that you don’t want to miss. After the panel draws to a close, guests may take self guided tours to explore the property. If you need a little afternoon inspiration, take a look at the Powel Crosley’s site and imagine yourself there on February 18th.

See you on the 18th!
