You’ve gone to an industry mixer, had a great time, and even managed to meet a super cool filmmaker! Huzzah!
You follow up and say how great it was chatting and hopefully you two can work together in the future. They are very polite and say something along the lines of, “Definitely. I will definitely definitely definitely let you know.”
Unfortunately this is sometimes where the communication ends. I’m curious to hear what everyone does to stay relevant to your new connection and keep the relationship alive when you may not see them in person for months or longer.
I remember in one of our earlier posts, Penka D Kouneva mentioned how she always keeps directors in the loop of her current events.
How do you make sure they’re thinking of you when they need your services?
