I am interested in gaining knowledge from those associated with the group as well as offer assistance in any form or fashion. I am a writer and have several project ideas that I am currently developing but feel I need additional input from those that truly know how to move my projects forward.
Most of my work has been in local, small projects though I worked many moons ago as an extra in Belizaire the Cajun. Wow how time flies! Currently I am spending most of my time writing various short stories, motivational pieces and 2 fictional pieces.
I currently live in Mandeville, LA. I can attend meetings in New Orleans, Baton Rouge and even Lafayette where I still have a residence.
I am currently trying to secure roles as a n extra so that I can get a "hands on" view of the workings of sets, filming etc so that it will assist me in both my writings as well as the potential of securing other roles. However, I will fill any role so that it will add to my base of knowledge of the industry. Yes, I will clean toilets or pick up trash!
Not currently, but any advice would be appreciated.
