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.

My application is being processed with Local 478. I worked union in LA.

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 most recently been working as a Costume Supervisor, Key Costumer and Set Costumer. I have also done Seamstress and Ager/Dyer work. I am currently working out of Southern Costume Company on a project basis while trying to get on a production.

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?

Burning Love (TV Series) Laboratory Conditions (Feature) Mysterious Ways (Feature) The Watch (Pilot) Devil's Couriers (TV Series) Blunt Force (Feature) The Joint (Pilot) Zombeo & Julecula (Feature)

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 costumer for 11 years in Film, TV, Theater and Commercials. I want to work more in features because I enjoy being on set and building a rapport with the crew which is often hard on commercials since production time is so short. Since I am new to the area I would like to use this group to meet others in the industry and find out about upcoming productions as well as interesting things to do around New Orleans.


I am a local costumer who just moved here for LA to work on more features. I prefer to be on set, but am also a skilled patternmaker and seamstress. I have been in love with NOLA since I first visited and am so happy that I got to relocate!
