Is the Grass Greener? – Trials and Triumphs of Hollywood
Aaron Matthew Kaiser, one of the founders of San Diego Filmmakers, will describe his transition from San Diego to Hollywood. Was he pushed or pulled? What’s better; what’s worse? He’ll talk about finding work, funding, staffing, locations, permits, casting, etc. It hasn't been easy (even hard realities like living on the floor of his office). His presentation will be followed by Q&A so nothing is left uncovered. Visit ( for more details. Comedy Palace serves food and drink. Please plan for dinner. A two item minimum helps cover the cost of the venue. Thanks!!

    What we're about

    Providing experience based education since 2005. There is a reason for that long list of credits at the end of a movie and the many skills they represent. We hold sessions open to the public on the second Tuesday of each month where we bring in guest speakers to help educate us on different aspects of the filmmaking arts. A typical audience might range from young students brought by parents to experienced industry veterans. From time to time we hold additional seminars on a Saturday to cover topics that need more time. Our sessions also provide an opportunity for local filmmakers to share insight, engage in meaningful dialogue about critical issues, and form collaborative connections. Time is provided before and after our sessions to compare notes on projects and core subject matter. Here attendees can learn more about who can help facilitate their project or find a project where they can learn or practice a skill. These projects serve as the lab time and homework between our lecture sessions.
