We’ve been meeting for 11 years and every meeting is different. It’s exciting to arrive and find new people who are there to share their story and hear about others. This group is unlike any other because everyone gets to meet everyone else in a laid back environment.

Join us if you are creative, or interested in learning about new things. Some topics that people have recently shared include self publishing on Amazon.com, new ways to shoot and share video, and pointers to interesting events happening around Boston.

Here’s a brilliant video recap of a recent meeting, by Bruce K Garber combining photos, videos and snapchat content:

Join us as we continue our 11th year!

ABOUT US:

Boston Media Makers is a monthly meet-up for media enthusiasts in the Greater Boston Area. We are social media enthusiasts, filmmakers, journalists, web geeks, technologists, designers, artists, entrepreneurs, and people just wanting to learn more about making and distributing media online. Come talk shop and share current projects. The guest presenter is YOU. Everyone gets three minutes to share, pitch, promote, or ask questions. We learn, get inspired, and collaborate. Hosted by Steve Garfield.

WHAT WE DO:

We gather around a big table and answer the questions:

– What are you doing?

– What do want to do?

– Do you need some help?

– You can ask questions too.

– Come with a prepared show and tell if you like.

GROUP DESCRIPTION: Everyone is welcome!
This meeting started out with people who were working with audio and video on the web but over the years it has expanded to include podcasters, video bloggers, filmmakers, artists, actors, musicians, writers, programmers, news reporters, PR and social media people. We help people GET SEEN.😉

The BEST thing about this meeting is that everyone who attends, gets to meet everyone else.

I love how it has expanded. Every month is a new experience with both returning friends and new attendees.

We were in the middle room this month because someone scheduled a one year old’s birthday party in the back room. We had some great discussions and met some new people and a few old timers. It was noisy and I requested that we make sure the back room is reserved for us all the time.  Another birthday party has been scheduled in the back room for May 1st, so I asked them to see if they can move it it so we can have out room back.

I know our motto for 11 years has been that we never cancel, but I’m thinking about taking the Summer off this year.  Your thoughts?
