Our last meeting was excellent but this one is going to be even better. I have received all of your comments and recommendations on how to make this meetup the best ever and am going to incorporate as many of your suggesstions as possible. This meeting with include information and speakers related to crew positions as well as actors. We will have professionals come and speak as well. I hope to see you there and remember to bring a friend. This meeting is dedicated to disseminating information on the industry as a whole. What productions are in town, who is hiring, what government is doing to protect our industry and incentives? The first part of the meeting will be distribution of this information so bring your notepads and any info you may have. The second part is pure networking...grab your resumes, headshots and join us! In addition, we break up into networking groups at the end of the meeting. These networking groups consist of: Cast Group - For actors and extras to share the inside scoop on who is hiring and how to improve your craft. Great place for all of you leads, extras and all of you that want to get your big break in front of the camera! Crew Group - For crew to discuss the needs specific to crew, how to interface with unions and how to find the jobs on upcoming productions. When you RSVP, be sure to list what you do such as camera, sound, gaffer, grip, etc... and what you want to accomplish at the meeting such as are looking for work, looking for crew, looking for contacts, just looking to talk shop etc…in the

    I am sorry for the cancellation. The restaurant tried to contact me at 6pm on the day of the event to tell me they had no air conditioning in the ballrom and as such they could not allow us to hold the event but of course due to HURRICANE ISSAC I was without power and was unable to get any message nor send out any notice....Thank god I got power two days later though...I hope everyone fared well. We have been invited to be a part of Cutting Edge: CE and will be holding what is predicted to be the biggest meetup so far on Friday September 28th, 2012 from 5pm to 7pm at Gallier Hall (3rd floor ballroom) in New Orleans. I hope to see you there...

    So far so good. Lot of people have come up to the door, realized it was locked, and sadly walked away :-(

    The door to go upstairs is locked. Oh well, I'm going to enjoy an Indian meal while I'm here!

    We are here. We actually went upstairs...looked like a pretty serious fantasy football draft going on. About 10-15 people with laptops and jerseys.

    There is a sign that says upper line entertainment meeting is canceled. Is that us? The guys working in the restaurant don't think there is anything else happening tonight

    I'm here at the restaurant and it looks like the meeting is canceled. Can anyone confirm that?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
