The San Francisco production community has banded together to throw its biggest community extravaganza in years. On Thursday, April 26th, more than a dozen companies and industry organizations have coordinated to host a production crawl where companies from the South of Market, Bayview, Bayshore and Mission neighborhoods are throwing their doors wide open to welcome colleagues, clients and guests to visit their facilities to reconnect and reinvigorate. The open house event, entitled Project Reboot, will begin at 3pm and end at 6pm.
After Project Reboot, the event will culminate at Beyond Pix Studios @Bayshore, a newly renovated soundstage, from 6pm to 8pm (or later...). Blues and jazz music of Max Bran Beat will rock the house. Hors devours and drinks will be served. Participants of Project Reboot will also be eligible to win prizes and the number of tickets one can submit for the drawing will depend on the number of facilities visited during the open house event.
Project Reboot is an extraordinary San Francisco/Bay Area event to compel industry professionals and clients to venture out to meet others face to face. In today’s smartphone, tablet and laptop dominated culture, we rely too much on the Internet to make connections, but in many ways it has disturbingly left many disconnected and disenfranchised. We seek to reverse that, to transcend the devices and to “reboot” our real life connections and promote friendships within the community. For many, this will serve as a reunion while for others, this could be their first industrial social event.
In any case, Project Reboot and the SOMA-palooza party is a stab at rallying the members of our industry to come together to see what and how others are doing, to visit their facilities to see where they work and to exchange ideas, business cards and swap stories.
After so many years of what many have perceived to be some of their toughest times, it’s imperative that we shake things up. Many are reporting that things are getting better and that business is looking up. We believe that is the case and Project Reboot is our emphatic statement that our best days are ahead of us and we’re just at the starting blocks.
If you want to join and enjoy this awesome event, please go to projectrebootsf.eventbrite.com and RSVP. Passports can be obtained at any of the open house locations, and will be stamped at every destination you visit which in turn will be converted to raffle tickets to qualify for several prizes including the new iPad. Drawing will be held at the SOMA-palooza soiree.
