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.

No.

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 recently finished two shorts (one 20 min. and one 12 min). I wrote, directed, produced, edited and did sound design on both. I would like to parlay my knowledge of the work pipeline into working with a producer as an associate producer with talent, design teams or in post-production. I would love to work on films from pre- to post-production. I am currently working on several scripts, but have not begun looking to produce them, and will be doing that in the future.

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)?

New Orleans

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

I have just finished a short called "Home Fires" (12 min) which is a finalist in the Louisiana Film Prize and premiering is Oct. 5-7th. This spring I showed my thesis film, "tree" (19:58) at the Little Rock Film Festival and am currently submitting it to other festivals. I worked as a sound designer for a student film. While at the University of Central Arkansas I also built a 15 sec. ad for the MFA program in AfterEffects. I am currently in talks to develop web content for a realty/restoration company.

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 have worked as a writer and theater director and film/theater actor my entire adult life. The move into film/TV is a natural progression. I would like to continue to write and occasionally direct my own scripts. But while doing that I would like to work for other productions as an associate producer or producer. I love post production. I also worked as at TA in acting classes. I like following a project from beginning to end. I hope to meet other professionals and hopefully build mutually beneficial relationships. I want to hear about upcoming productions and other interesting news about the local industry.

Introduction

I am Christy Ward. After 20+ years writing, and acting, I went back to school and got my MFA in Digital Filmmaking from the University of Central Arkansas. I am currently looking for Associate Producer and editing work while finishing scripts.
