“Great PCS Projects are Now Underway!”
The Place Called Sacramento Film Festival Cast & Crew Call was a great success. Almost 200 community members came out to join in filmmaking fun in hopes of becoming part of a Production team. There are 10 films being created over the summer. The 10 PCS Scriptwriting winners are now Producers and are currently in process of gathering both their cast and crew.
The 10 scriptwriters turned producers were formally announced at the event and we congratulate them! It was a stiff competition this year with lots of great stories and tales of life and inspiration in Sacramento.

An accomplished journalist risks his credibility to help a friend in need with a film project. The topic is ‘hot’ and the ratings will be hotter if they succeed, but will it be worth it in the end?
If you missed out on getting to the Cast & Call in person you can still mail us your information. You can send us your resume or any information that might me relevant to what you would like to take part in and specify ‘crew’ or ‘cast’ or both. We will forward your information to all 10 filmmakers. If you are an actor or want to be an extra please include a headshot. For PCS purposes they do not have to be professional, but we ask that you include basics: head shot, full body shot, age range you can perform, contact info, etc. No experience is needed. So, there is still time to be part of the movie making process.
You can send you information to Postmaster@AccessSacramento.org and/or MBarbaria@AccessSacramento.org
Please call Michelle Barbaria or Ron Cooper in the Access Sacramento Office if you have any questions. 916.456-8600 x 0.

You can listen to his show online and through your television using the Second Audio Program button (SAP). Please tune in to hear more from Brian and others.
– Michelle B.B.
I am Brian McKinsey, aka: Papa B. My 5 grand kids call me Papa B so I
just kept on keeping on with that name and for me, it is true
affection. I am a native California and have been married to my
Junior High Sweetheart, Jolene, for over 30 years. I am a 100%
Service Connected Disabled Veteran who is an Alumni of the School of
Hard Knocks. My two shows here on “The Voice” at AccessSacramento
hopefully will give the listeners some hope and renewed encouragement
that whatever they are going through, others of us have gone through
it as well and have made and they can to.
“From The Heart” is all about playing music that means something to me
and I try and incorporate local musicians to create that “shop at
home” kinda of feeling. Support our local area kind of thing.
My second show, “Non-Profits & Support Groups” is just that. In
Recovery, I have heard many times, “How did you hear about that
group?” That is what this show is about. Getting Non-Profits &
Support Groups air time for the issues and help them help others in
our Community as they have helped me.
May You all Be Safe & Well

Ghosts with Shit Jobs
Director Jim Munroe is currently planning to be in attendance!
We’re pleased to bring this new lo-fi, micro budget ($4000!) science fiction film by Jim Munroe to Sacramento! It’s been the hit of underground film festivals around North America, and was featured at Alamo Drafthouse in 2012!
About the movie: In the future, jobs still suck but in whole new ways. By 2040, the global economy has flipped and North Americans are a cheap labour pool for wealthy Asian markets. The movie consists of episodes of a documentary series popular in mainland China about the bad jobs some white people have — the plucky and resilient souls unlucky enough to be born into the slums of North America are both amusing and moving to the Chinese audience. Oscar is a digital janitor, and has to manually cover up logos for copyright reasons in the future’s answer to Google StreetView maps. Gary and Karen assemble robot baby dolls for the children of the wealthy in Asia. Anton and Toph are spider silk collectors. Serina is human spam and makes a living by mentioning brands and products in casual conversation.
“Brilliant… will leave you emotionally shaken, your brain teeming with weird new ideas…” – io9
“Ingenious… A gripping movie that uses cleverness, not cgi, to paint a vivid and satirical future” – Cory Doctrow
“Excellent… Science fiction is not dead.” – Wired
