New Orleans Film Industry Meetup

Our last meeting was excellent but this one is going to be even better. I have received all of your comments and recommendations on how to make this meetup the best ever and am going to incorporate as many of your suggesstions as possible. This meeting with include information and speakers related to crew positions as well as actors. We will have professionals come and speak as well. I hope to see you there and remember to bring a friend. This meeting is dedicated to disseminating information on the industry as a whole. What productions are in town, 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. Great place for all of you leads, extras and all of you that want to get your big break in front of the camera! 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. When you RSVP, be sure to list what you do such as camera, sound, gaffer, grip, etc... and what you want to accomplish at the meeting such as are looking for work, looking for crew, looking for contacts, just looking to talk shop etc…in the "add a comment" box. That way your Crew sub group moderators will know how to prepare for your meetup! Filmmakers Group - For filmmakers and aspiring filmmakers to discuss ideas and ways to hone their craft and help nurture more indigenous projects. Screenwriters Group - For Screenwriters and aspiring Screenwriters to share ideas, scripts and discuss topics pertaining to Scripts and screenwriting. Monthly meetups are an opportunity to network, share best practices and meet face to face with the best in our industry! Thanks for your interest in Louisiana Produces!

    Well, I was at Ways and Means this evening. HB444 passed the Committee favorably BUT it was corrupted with deadly amendments, which ruined the bill, meaning we won another battle today. HB161 is deferred and we don't know if or when it would reappear. Our attendance yesteday spilled over and did count today. The red cards took about six inches in Chairs hand. WOW!!! My own eyes popped ot in awe. These 2 Representatives spoke and stuck to their guns. They mentioned me and recognized my presence and sure felt my effort against them. Even Governor is listening, which is great news. Not Gospel, but I do believe we will be winning him, when I read it or hear it in black and white, we will sure let us know. Game is not over, but just winning a few battles. Many more to come up and will let us know. Keep Alert to my blasts and facebook.

    RED ALERT! Notice I rsvpd No, because we have to be at the State Capitol to fight HB161 and HB444 which are fatal to our industry. We need to get there en masse and make sure Members of Ways & Means Vote NO on these bills, and lobby our own reps to help us fight these bills and try to get Rep. Ted James and Rep. Roy Burrell to remove their bills. I was warned from many sources that they want to railroad against us and our tax credits. Please bring computers and watch live immediately as soon as House adjourns: http://house.louisiana.gov/H_Video/WM/HseSWAGIThcr6wm.asp

    KEEP CALLING[masked] all day tomorrow TUESDAY MAY 7 and leave messages to your rep to help fight these bills and to ask Members of Ways & Means to VOTE NO HB161 & HB444: MEMBERS http://house.louisiana.gov/H_Cmtes/H_CMTE_WM.asp
