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?

Interested in being an extra or maybe a little more! Always wanted to experience acting/drama. After the challenge of being a Marine/Personnel Administrator, I am ready to take a stab at something else that has always been of interest to me.

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

A video at the USMC Personnel Admin School regarding Sexual Assault/Harassment, performed as an extra in Rob Lowe's "A Perfect Day" (Sept 2006) and recently performed as an extra in Brad Pitt's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (Nov/Dec 2006).

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 Slidell, LA. New Orleans would be best for meetings.

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 experience as an "extra". Would like to be considered for more in the future. I have had loads of experience appearing before large groups teaching, lecturing, etc. I am not currently working on any projects, but plan to when needed.

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.
