This meeting is dedicated to disseminating information on the industry as a whole. What productions are in the state, 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. 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.

Screenwriters Group - For screenwriters to share ideas and discuss projects they are currently working on or are developing.

Filmmakers Group - For filmmakers and aspiring filmmakers to discuss ideas and ways to hone their craft and help nurture more indigenous projects.

We highly encourage you to attend these meetings and participate in the networking groups. Remember to check out the message boards in between meetings as they not only contain vital industry information, but are also an excellent way to get important questions answered quickly by our best brightest!

Thanks for your interest in Louisiana Film!

    I rated this meetup as "neutral". Wayne did a super job and the speakers were super. People were allowed to get up and speak which a lot did including myself. Now the bad parts. People seem to let it go in one ear and out the other about the good advice the speakers gave. Like the advice about getting good head shots. Most people just can't get it through their heads they need one or think they can do as good as a job as me or other pros and they can't. Then, again, like at the Baton Rouge meetup, hardly anyone spoke to me. The ones who use to attend this meetup did. It discourages me from attending that much. Why I am hated for being famous, why?!!!!!!

    It was really good! I do think we should all meet as one group, directors, producers, actors, post, etc but I think it would be great if the extra's and others that weren't making a career out of film, or at least a serious part time career out of being in the film industry as a pro or semi-pro, had their own meet up group, that way we could really pull in the professional actors along with the other professional crew that are out there. Nothing against the extra's, I've done extra work and still will do it on some occasions, it just be great to have everyone on the same page. I hope this doesn't piss anyone off, that is definitely not my intention.
