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?

Since I was a little girl, I have always been interested in Film/TV, practically sitting in front of the television for hours at a time, being fascinated by what I saw. As I got older, I started to get into public speaking and writing and felt as though since much of my interest lies within the entertainment industry, I might as well find a career within in it in some capacity. I would love to one day become a Publicist/p.r. rep for talent (actors, singers, etc.) and ultimately start my own P.R. firm. I feel as though this group can be beneficial to me in so many ways because of the vast resources that are offered within in it, in regards to the industry. This past Tuesday I attended the H.U.R.D.'s monthly meeting held in Jin Jeans' and I was very impressed and appreciative of all the information that I received. I also felt fortunate to meet with the other attendees and see others whom I have met prior to the meeting.

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

I was just an extra for the Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I laso do alot of promotional work for various companies and national conventions that come into the New Orleans area. I'm currently working on a promotion with Toys R Us and Babies R Us.

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 is where I reside and that would be the best location for me to attend a H.U.R.D. meeting. I think that you all have the cities covered for right now, seeing as though most work is going to those particular cities.

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'm currently a "freelance"extra/actor, as I call it and I'm trying to possibly dab into screenwrting, but more on the commercial/tv end of it, writing for promotional projects.

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.

I'm currently not a member of any union.


My name is Candace Jones and I am currently a student at the University of New Orleans, majoring in Communications with a minor in Marketing. I'm looking to break into Entertainment Public Relations upon graduation in 2007.
