About the Salon

The monthly FWD:labs Salon is for makers, do-ers, filmmakers, photographers, designers, creative directors, strategists, producers, web designers, brand consultants, social media marketers, entrepreneurs, small biz owners, and all aspiring to become masters of industry.

As of 2018, events start with a 15-minute talk by a guest speaker, focusing on three tips or take-aways on a specific creative process. Then we have a Q&A followed by grabbing a bite and drink nearby the venue.

Salon Experiences

"It's difficult to describe these types of gatherings to the uninitiated because there free form nature allows them to morph. I had a great time on Saturday in spite of (or because of) I didn't know most of the guys there. The topics I personally discussed ranged from the techniques of photographing fight scenes to critiques of Hayao Miyazaki's work to the very nature of objective reality; good stuff!"
Mike Location Sound
"The cocktail salon went super well. I ended up leaving at 10:30, but the conversations were just really involved. I think some connections have been made between people."
David Animator
