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?

Why am I interested? It's how I'm wired. I believe it to be one of the most exciting industries one could be a part. My goals? I am retired. So my desire to get involved in the industry lends itself to a wide range of goals, from background work to speaking roles, possible SAG membership, and possible behind the camera work.

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

I would be entry level. Years ago I was a stand in in a movie called "The Toy" with Richard Pryor, Jackie Gleason, and Wilfred Hyde White. I also did background in the same film. Also, did background for a movie titled "Louisiana" starring Ian Charlson and Margot Kidder. I have approx. 20 years of community theater experience as well.

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 reside in Baton Rouge but because my interest is so high, I am willing to attend meetings in any of the cities mentioned above.

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.

As stated earlier I would be entry level in any discipline. I can act, did it for about 20 years on stage doing community theater in Baton Rouge, Baker, LA, Brookhaven, MS and in college.

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.

Currently I am not a member of a union.

Introduction

I am a retired 62 year old caucasian male. I have about 20 years stage experience and years ago did stand in and background for The Toy and for Louisiana. Job prevented me from getting too involved. Now I have a lot of time on my hands.

What Michael K P. is saying about this Meetup Group

I am a first timer so what I gained from tonight's meeting was a little more confidence, an opportunity to meet new people and establish some great contacts and I learned more about the 48 hour project.
