    Hi! My name is Excelina Ordonez.

    I speak both Spanish and English. I currently live in Austin, Texas, but I am originally from Colombia. I went to college in Santiago, Chile where I studied radio and tv broadcasting, but I also love my career in acting. I have participated in 4 independent films and now I am finishing my new movie, where I am the lead, called The Movie Bad Actress.

    I’m looking to participate in more projects here in Austin and simultaneously start my own production company.

    Looking forward to meeting you all! 🙂

    Hi everyone, my name is Jose. I’m an untested, unproven diamond in the rough (as it were) brimming full of ideas. I write leaning towards the independent scene. I am currently working on an idea that might be a good shot in the arm for the film industry lacking in originality. I’m a self taught screenwriter influenced by the likes of Quentin Tarantino, for his dialogue driven story telling. Martin Scorcese for the use of popular music to accentuate a scene and Paul Thomas Anderson for the use of diverse characters. I am 72 pages in of 120-130 page script. I have structured to where if some dialogue is missing or a scene is edited out, the whole story falls apart. I have a good half dozen idea left to complete and i have at least 3-4 waiting to be developed. I’m looking for a collaborator to help bring my unique visions to the screen one day. Thanks for taking the time out to read this. Hope to hear from someone.

      Hi Jose, thanks so much for posting and introducing yourself. Sounds like you have a lot going on. That’s awesome! Can’t wait to see what great things you make. Welcome to the group!

  3. Emily Giuffre

    Hey y’all! I’ve mostly acted in the past. Being a theatre major in college, I did everything from contemporary, children’s theatre and Shakespeare. After college I worked in both educational and professional theatre (as well as audition like crazy) but my goal was always to do film on the acting and directing side so I’ve attended a few film workshops. I write on the side as well with the intent of acting and directing that work as well. I haven’t gotten to that point of making a living with it though so I’ve probably had more jobs than birthdays at this point. I’m beyond excited to know there is a place like the Austin Film Meet to help me reach my dreams. I’ve attended one Ladies’ networking event so far and loved it! So excited to dive head first into the events now that I’ve freed up more time for myself and my dreams!

    • H.Cherdon

      Hi Emily! We’re so glad you have joined us! You have a fascinating background. I love grew up doing theater and Shakespeare, actually. It’s a great foundation for filmmaking. I look forward to seeing what amazing things you do. Keep us posted & welcome to the group!

    I want to first and foremost say thank you to all the founders and the founders for keeping this group alive and growing. I think I can speak for the majority on here that after seeing an amazing awww inspiring film weather its funny, sad, scary, dramatic, and or suspenseful, in that moment you feel anything is possible ,and any dream is within grasp. I believe people who enter this industry are in it for that very reason. For me I come from a very different background that has really nothing at all to do with film at all, I’d call myself an admirer to those successful in the industry and those aspiring to be. I am an ex-professional athlete, football player to be exact. I spent my 4 years at West Texas A&M University then signing with the 49er’s as a free agent , ending up in the Canadian Football League for a brief stint, then spending the last year and a half over in Europe finishing out my career. I give partial credit to my success to binge watching Friday Night Lights at least twice a week for a year until I could quote the movie line for line. After watching that film it inspired me to go out and work hard for what I want. I believe film is where dreams come alive, and I want to inspire others how others have inspired me.
