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.

I am not a member of any of the Unions. I currently work as an independent.

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.

I have primarily worked as an extra in film, tv and commercials. I have also worked as a PA on the set of a tv production. I have co founded an acting class.

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)?

I live in Bossier City and I have already been attending the monthly meeting for several years here in Northwest La. At first, we met @ BPCC and now @ the Robinson film center.

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

My first was Blaze starring Paul Newman. It was filmed primarily in my hometown of Winnfield. Originally that was my film career but then Katrina happened. That lead me to work in numerous productions near Shreveport w/ Ruffian being 1st.

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've gotten the bug. There is no cure for this bug. I have taken acting classes and am involved in one at the moment. I want to be able to work full time in this business.


I have done some work in the film and tv business and would like to continue to do more with an emphasis of becoming more professional.

What Russ S. is saying about this Meetup Group

I just didn't feel like going to the Louisiana Producers meeting tonight but I attended anyway. I was blessed for going. Bill Marinella is the real deal and will help people in the state of Louisiana to develop film work.
