An un-conference is an open-format regional conference where everyone interested in the growth and development of their community is welcome to speak on any topic they are passionate about. Their motto is Share-Learn-Grow. Much like Tyler Durden's Fight Club, there are only 2 rules to the BarCamp UnConference: 1. You must want to help others learn what you know! 2. You are not here to sell or do a product presentation!

How Florida Lost Its Status as "Hollywood East" for Shooting Film, TV Projects - Hollywood Reporter

Fri, 03/13/2015 - 16:43 -- rprice

"I hear it every day: Producers want to come here, but they're forced to take projects to other states and, at times, rewrite them to fit those locations because of the dollar-to-dollar values," says Michelle Hillery, president of Film Florida and deputy film commissioner in Palm Beach County.
