Are you a member of a Union (Actors - SAG/AFTRA/AEA, etc), (Crew - IATSE/TEAMSTERS, etc), (Director - DGA, etc), (Writers - WGA, etc) or any other Union not listed here.

Not yet a union member, but I'm working on accruing enough hours to qualify.

Are you an Actor, Extra, Crew (what is your specialty, i.e. grip, best boy etc), Producer, Director, Screenwriter, Film support (i.e. equipment rental, caterer, etc)? Basically please describe what it is you currently do in relation to films/TV.

Crew: swing PA or grip. I love lighting and rigging! I'm still learning a lot and working my way through the Set Lighting Technician's Handbook. I've also done some camera op, some assistant camera work, some boom op, and some filling in for prop master.

What city do you live in? Which city would be best for you to attend a Monthly Meeting? Shreveport, New Orleans, Baton Rouge or Lafayette? Is there another city that you think we should hold a Meeting (one that would benefit many people)?

Now in New Orleans.

What Film/TV Projects have you worked on in the past? What projects are you working on currently?

A feature in Austin (hasn't been released yet), an industrial, and lots of short films as well as web episodes.

Why are you interested in the Film & TV Industry. What are your future Film/TV goals? What do you want to do in the future in relation to Film and TV? Why do you want to join this group. What do you think this group can do for you?

I love the technical aspects of crew work, especially the mechanics. I love picking up a light stand and moving it, panning lights, laying dolly tracks, etc. When everything comes together and the shot looks really good, that's when it's artistically satisfying. I love the times when everyone works as a team and feels good about the project. I hope to learn more and become a gaffer. I'd like to meet other people in the industry and hear about projects that I can help with.
