In the Spring of 2001, while unemployed, Neil, Cecil and Nick took a hike in Griffith Park. Neil turned to Cecil and Nick
and said, "I call myself a film maker, and yet I never make any films." And thus, with those few words, the idea
of *Alpha 60 was born.
Practise your voice. Learn to let go of your writing. And find joy in the exercise of narrative or experimentation.
Have a safe place to try and fail with no pressure of the Hollywood Bubble that we live in.
The first *Alpha 60 screening was at member Leda's house on December 17th, 2001. There were just 4 filmmakers. One of
the films was out of sync. But we decided to do it again six weeks later and invite a few friends.
Now almost three years and hundreds of films later, *Alpha 60 continues to be a place to practise filmmaking and find
your narrative voice.
