Comedy Tomorrow Night + Upcoming Events From LaunchPad

Thursday, April 11th @ 7:30pm
Screenwriters Meetup and Workshop

A table-read is one of the most valuable forms of feedback in screenwriting. The Screenwriters Meet-Up is a place for writers to bring screenplays or scenes to read out loud and workshop with other writers. If necessary, we ask that people with longer scripts (30+ pages) have specific scenes picked out so we can accommodate a higher number of people present at a given session.

Everyone is welcome, including beginners or actors who only want to read.

721 Franklin Avenue, Brooklyn
2/3/4/5/C to Franklin Ave
7:30p; Pay what you wish

Tom Stathes Cartoon Carnival 14: Food Fun
For the simple reason that people enjoy eating, Tom Stathes has curated rare food-related animated cartoons from the 1910s-1940s. Come and experience the latest Cartoon Carnival screening--shown in real 16mm film, with a real projector--a unique experience you'll be sure to remember!

Tom Stathes is a "Cartoon Cryptozoologist", with a rare film print collection comprised of over 1,000 shorts. His archive consists of everything from Felix the Cat and Farmer Alfalfa to silent reels from Bray Studios and Out of the Inkwell. A native-New Yorker, he turned his passion for the city’s animation legacy into a preservation mission. With his Bray Animation Project, he has worked with several film and comic historians to document the studio’s invaluable output.
