New Orleans Film Industry Meetup

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 "add a comment" box. That way your Crew sub group moderators will know how to prepare for your meetup! Filmmakers Group - For filmmakers and aspiring filmmakers to discuss ideas and ways to hone their craft and help nurture more indigenous projects. Screenwriters Group - For Screenwriters and aspiring Screenwriters to share ideas, scripts and discuss topics pertaining to Scripts and screenwriting. Monthly meetups are an opportunity to network, share best practices and meet face to face with the best in our industry! Thanks for your interest in Louisiana Produces!

    Apparently on the way over we received a call from the venue advising us that we could not use the location. The organizer, Jon Tower was trying on short notice to get a new location and was going to post a sign. I have not heard if he was able to secure a new location...

    GOOD NEWS...NOT CANCELLED JUST CHANGE OF VENUE...

    We were informed at 3:30 this afternoon that the banquet room at Nirvana will be unavailable tonight!! One of our brand new members has come to the rescue - Nick Serino is manager of The Brick, which is a pub on St. Joseph St. He has offered it for our meeting, so that's where we will be! I have already confirmed with Jacqueline Shulman on the change of venue. She will be there and will be ready to talk about Timecode:NOLA. I am now trying to reach Phil LoCicero - I have spoken with him once today, but it was before this change. Hopefully I can connect with him, but we expect to have someone at the door at Nirvana to redirect folks, in any case. The Bricks is at 735 St. Joseph St., betwen Carondolet and St. Charles Ave. It is on the left side, as you drive down St. Joseph. Hope to see everyone there!

      Ellene, check out my Web site here: http://TheActorsAllia...­ Next semester starts the week of September 16 and runs for six weeks.  In the last class we have a showcase with an agent or other industry person.

      If you would like to enroll and save $25 off the cost of tuition, send me a $50 deposit made out to Veleka Gray before the six-week semester starts, and your tuition will be $275 instead of $300, so $225 when you arrive and register. Otherwise, it's $300 at the door.
