“ WOW!!!! is all I can say. Excited with Jon Tower with his Leadership and his plans for the future. IT is what put Louisiana on the Map! IT WORKS!!! Growing real fast. I got major jobs because I networked in the meetup, and got some reading Message Boards. We get work. Fully integrated of all talents. I like that. Facilitates information flow. Great networker. This group is a wonderful idea and it is really needed by the film industry and its workforce and small businesses involved. I would like to eventually see it create some type of annual expo and/or 3 day convention/conference with boothes, demonstrations, and broken down workshops to serve specific areas. Information workshops and issues oriented workshop needed. ”

“ Based on who I saw and met, it seems like a driven group of people. But driving without direction just gets you lost, so now that we've got the manpower and a few resources, we need to map out a course. There does need to be a central hub of information (likely a website, rather than an office, for now), but I find it funny that EVERYONE wants their website to be that hub. Or they want their face to be attached to that hub. There's a lot of scrambling for the top of the heap, I think, which is understandable since if things keep going the way they are, there's going to be some power to be shared in this city. And that's really what we need around here, someone who's got a clear enough understanding of the big picture, but who's also willing to share the power instead of hoarding it. Good luck to us all and thanks for reading. www.studio8.net ”
